"Thanks for posting Judi. Different rules for different areas of the PLEX/19th Ward
There seem to be different rules for the type of trash set out and the times it can be set out. My next door neighbor set trash out Thursday night(pick up was…"
"Sheldon Terrace is passable. The intersection with Stanfield St is messy. Someone plowed snow from a driveway into the intersection. Not nice thing to do. Isn't there some regulation about pushing snow into the street?"
What Street (and location if not in the Quadrant)?
How long have you lived there?
Do you rent or own?
Do you plan on staying there?
Tell us about yourself:
I feed feral/abandoned cats on Dunbar St and have worked with Pet Adoption Network since Spring of 2008 to spay and find homes for the cats that I found living and reproducing at an empty house on Dunbar St near Thurston Rd. So far 21 cats have been spayed and only 5 have had to be returned since they did not do well indoors.
I can across a few these cats by accident on my early morning walk and started carrying food with me and before I knew it I was feeding more than 16 cats which grew in numbers before they could all be caught and spayed. I have 4 cats of my own all are rescues two were rescues from the Dunbar Group
At the moment I have "number 21" of the group recovering from her surgery in my home in hopes of socializing her enough for adoption.
A friend, who lives in the country feeds "Bernie." He doesn't know Bernie's sex, let alone if s/he has been spayed or neutered. Bernie is gone for weeks on end, and then returns. This happens even during the winter. He eats, sleeps either inside (a room readily accessible to an outside door) and then goes on his or her merry way. My friend is able to pet him, but he's still pretty feral.
In the sixties when I was living in a lower apartment and had a cat door, I could not keep my two kitties who had been outside/stray cats in small quarters, so the cat door served them well (I'd lock it at night when they were inside). "Nucat" would disappear for days, not particularly concerned about my anxiety, and would turn up dry (even if it had been raining) and smelling of having been inside someone's home. Happy and had been well fed in his absence.
I know Sarah is feral, but there is a good possibility she latched onto a person who had good food and good shelter. And indeed, she might very well return. I certainly hope that this is the case.
You are so kind, and I know your heart is grieving.
