Hello there, Hope it was a pleasant weekend where you are. I'm wondering if anyone out there could provide some advice for me. We are having a little bit of a issue on our street and I'm not sure if I am over-reacting a touch (I don't think I am, but need a bit of a sense check). Over the past 2 months, one fairly new neighbour on our street has decided to take in (not one, but three) cats on our street. This neighbour is not a pet-owner, is married and has two children who are teenagers. Over the last few months, this neighbour and her family: - have had three neighbourhood cats in her house - have fed the cats - have had the cats stay overnight upstairs in her children's rooms (I only know this because I can see the cats sitting on the children's windows from our garden as the cats basque in the sun) Initially, this neighbour was hosting and feeding just one of our neighbour's cats, then she was hosting a second neighbour's cat (both of these two cats have urinary tract medical conditions, one is old and very, very week at the moment). The two owners of these two cats have individually put notes in this neighbour's post box, requesting that the cats not be fed due to their medical conditions. Most recently, the neighbour has started inviting our one-eyed cat into her house and feeding him. In addition to being fed, he has also been upstairs in her house ...(which was a complete surprise to me when I knocked on the neighbour's door at 11pm after calling for our cat for 20 minutes outside our windows - only to see the daughter grasping at our cat's legs as she grabbed him to bring him down her staircase). This left me shocked as our cat has weak hips requiring expensive medical attention and can't actually climb up or down stairs very well (and does not respond very well to being "grabbed"). I'm not really sure what to do. A few weeks ago (before my cat was in her house), this neighbour and I did bump into each other one afternoon. During our chat, she mentioned that she didn't want to fall out with any of our other neighbours due to a cat issue. I thought that was innocent of her, but when I then found our cat in her house just a week or so later, I was a bit shocked to be honest. Sadly, I believe that she continues to have our cat in her house even though I have been very direct about saying that we are not open to "sharing" our cats in this way. I don't know if I should think that this neighbour is simply ignorant of pet care or, god forbid, just blindly inconsiderate. Any advice? I'm thinking that it might be best to invite her over for a cup of tea to talk through the medical issues that our cats have and to acknowledge that I understand she will do what she wants regardless of what I as a pet owner request. And with the latter in mind, it is important that she understand each of our cats particular medical and individual needs. Am I being a bit too protective? I don't feel like I am. Any advice?
