Postby yazoo » Mon Nov 14, 2011 7:01 pm

Hi , i have 15 cats which i am looking to relocate to my new house.

Maybe planning permission from the council?

Do a "Google" for CAT RESCUE PLANNING ROMNEY to see what you will be up against .... and that the opposition can be beaten.

I think you will need to contact your council. Well done you for taking on such a worthy cause. :D

As long as the cats are contained within the runs, the runs are kept clean, and the cats aren't roaming and crapping on all the neighbours property, then I don't see why the neighbours would complain.

If they do complain, and you can show the place is properly run, then won't that dis-arm their arguments?

I wouldn't mind if you were next door to us. You'd have a regular visitor. :)
Keep calm and carry on.

I think there must be close to 10 cats that visit our garden, I doubt neighbours would mind a cat rescue as long as all 15 or so cats aren't roaming their gardens.

I hope it is a success and you manage to re-home all the cats you take into care for. People need to take on rescue animals rather than going to their local pet shop.

It is funny how this thread twisted towards neighbour complaints when the OP never mentioned a word about complaints.....we must be a bit conditioned on here :lol:

No one is allowed to complain about a neighbour with 15 or more cats, its their dedicated army of shitters. :lol:

I love cats - I have three (two were strays and one was from the cats protection league) but our street is full of them. Vinnie who lives two doors along, a ginger tom the size of a fox, is the boss. He loves to dig my garden up and p00 even though I have a dog (a rescue dog of course!) :lol:

We get a lot of cats visiting our garden, there are gravelled areas so it is a great toilet for them. At the moment the hedgehogs are giving the cats a run for their money with poops, they don't stick to the gravel though, just my shoes. :x

We have lots of visiting cats. We have Hissin Sid who's been visiting for a long time, and we feed him. Now we're feeding a big black cat, he's lovely and friendly. He stands on his back legs, puts his paws on the windowsill and looks through the window when he's hungry. It's like running a canteen.

Will, we get a lot of hedgehog poop too. Good and sticky isn't it? :lol:
Keep calm and carry on.

Hi apples. Grrr hedge-poop is very sticky, I tried to kick one and it ended up as a foot ornament. :lol: I love hedgehogs and feed them, so a little poop is not so bad really. Same with cats, I don't mind them in the garden, I just feel a little sorry for our cat sometimes because he feels he must defend his territory.

For a while we tried to keep other cats out so our cat could feel more at ease. But it isn't really worth the trouble, silly boy goes out and finds trouble anyway. He fights too much, I wish he would just get on with other cats but it isn't to be.

I like that you feed cats co ming to your garden, that is a very kind thing to do. You get cats which you think are stray, we thought our cat was a stray for years and fed him. It turned out he belonged to someone, but as cats do, he chose to keep coming to our house. I don't think you ever own a cat, it much more the other way around.

Hissing Sid sounds like a comical one. Our neighbour’s cat hisses a lot, but still comes to see us. :lol:

Hi Will. No, you never own a cat, they own you. :lol: They decide where they're going to live. Hissing Sid is feral, he's been coming for a long time now, but we can't stroke him. He likes to know the cafe's open, and he likes us to talk to him, his little ears go round like radar scanners. A cat we were feeding earlier in the year came back today. I love them all. :)
Keep calm and carry on.
