119. He said he participated in the roundup of all the cats that were let loose by the woman evicted

He and his wife personally trapped 4 kittens (as well as a lot of cats) that were very small and still nursing. They were not able to catch the Mom right away but did manage to round her up later.

He said all of the cats were taken to the vet and spayed or neutered. The County has just changed a law that had been passed years ago pertaining to "feral" cats. These cats when captured were euthanized. Under this new law, they are trapped, neutered, given rabies shots, marked by an ear tip and then let loose back in the area where they were captured. My neighbor thinks Nikita is one of these cats.

I don't think he has been correct about everything he has told me, but he has a big heart and has done a lot to help a lot of animals. I am hoping in a way that he is correct about this because that would mean Nikita is not pregnant, just gaining weight from my overfeeding her, and that she has had a rabies shot. That would mean I would just have to address the flea question (because I do have a dog that I protect from fleas) and the worm issue. That would be a huge step. Then when we reach the point she allows me to pick her up, I can address taking her to the vet for the vaccines.

In the meantime, she is sleeping in her igloo home, and amazingly enough she listens to what I tell her (sometimes). I pat the igloo home and call it "Nikita's house" and I tell her to go in it. She does not but when I come back out to check on her, she is in it. And she looks so cute with her beautiful little face looking at me through the round access door. So this happened the last 3 nights. Also I called her today, and she came from across the street. She knows her name!

So as I have said before, this is a work in progress and I am loving the cat more each day. I think this will end up very well.

I hope you check out the pics below and thanks for posting on this thread.
