NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
When I moved into my current residence, a few feral cats came with the territory.
I am an animal lover and I naively went ahead and fed them because I couldn’t stand to see them go hungry.
Not knowing a lot about cats and how fast they multiply, soon a few cats became a colony. Some took refuge in my garage and, with the help of the Lawrence County Animal Relief Fund and their low-cost pay and neuter program, I spayed and neutered 27 cats.
Several of those cats are still in my garage and have been since I moved here, about eight years ago. I have also done my best to find good homes for some.
Suddenly this winter, I found many cats missing. Then I found some dead in my yard. About 12 or more have either mysteriously gone missing or died. My new neighbor also had a dead cat in his yard.
I contacted authorities, and although I had an autopsy done on one of the cats, I unfortunately cannot prove it was poisoned. It came back inconclusive.
Whoever is killing these innocent animals has to answer to God. Why are people so cruel? The Bible says He even knows when a sparrow falls.
I am grateful to Donna Roth and the LCARF for their care and help. They have been very kind and compassionate toward me.
It is against the law in all 50 states to trap and/or kill cats, feral or otherwise. I came to love each and every one of those cats and if I find out who killed them, I intend to prosecute to the fullest extent.
