Would cat depot care to offer the "facts" on more cat dumping that occurred just prior to moving into their spacious state of the art facility? Five additional cats were accepted at a local sanctuary that has been in dire financial trouble, on the premise that cat depot did not want them in the new building and the cats would be euthanized. These cats were portrayed as hard core ferals-in truth, their city street days were long behind them.
Subsequently, they were not placed in the sanctuaries cattery, where they would have been protected and able to enjoy SOME of the comforts they were accustomed to. Even Fractous cats deserve comfort. Instead, they were confined a short period of time and then released in an open area consisting of a tree with cages suspended from it and several catwalks.
I was told 25 cats on average are maintained there, but only observed 4 cats and about 40 vultures all over the structure. This area floods out and draws alligators, among other predators. Has Ms. Thayer been back there to see if these 5 cats are still "romping" about.
She may succeed in blowing smoke up the backside of some people who are so dazzled by the "front" they can't see the "underbelly" but she can't delude many others who know the miserable reality that is the short life of these "country" cats.
Also in reality, there were MORE than 4 cats dumped at the Myakka Sanitation site and contrary to what THayer would have people believe, none of these cats were confined to cages prior to their extraction from cat depot premises.
Rather than consult her fractous cat guru, she might want to pay attention to local events, like the decimation of feral and pet cats on Cortez by coyotes and the opposition and debate on removing and dispersing to remote properties, the cats who made fishermans wharf in punta gorda their home.
So why would cat depot deliberately sentence long term sheltered cats to a short outdoor life in the heat, cold, rain and disease carrying fleas, ticks & mosquitos. Further more, no well intentioned care giver can "supervise" 24/7 or prevent a frightened cat from fleeing the premises. I know of a woman in Myakka who took two friendly cat depot cats as barn cats, several years ago. She has no barn and her 5 dogs KILLED both cats.
Shame on this new cat depot if you are a donor, don't finance cat depots ego trip and this hush-hush travisty.
