Earlier last year (2010), I found out that my city issued littering citations to a lady who has been feeding and taking care of the feral cats in her neighborhood (Rockaway beach). She actually helped reduce the feral cat population from 150 to eight. The city was calling her compassionate acts “littering.” Needless to say, I was very upset about the city wasting our precious tax dollar in this harsh economic times for going after a good sommaritan instead of catching “real” criminals.
At the court hearing held in September, the judge found her not guilty! “Feeding cats is not littering.” Hooray!
Stripes and Reese are two of the cats at Rockaway. Today, I found out that Stripes is at least 13 years old and lived at the Rockaway beach all her life, but about 4 months ago, she found a forever home! This news made my day. :)
