Today the APL came and seized all of our cats. Their comments on their page were not truthful but I didn't expect them to be honest. They then came back and told us to open the doors and let the ferals outside or they would take them. The APL vet said they would be fine, they're feral cats. These cats would have no food, or shelter, they have been indoor cats for years. No winter coats being fed every day. Mary objected and tonight I do not know the fate of the feral cats. I sit here tonight totally sickened with sadness that this is happening. On APL FB page under the COMMENTS section, I responded to a post from the APL as a reply. It's long but I had to get it out. The truth prevails and that's all I spoke. Thank you all for your ongoing support. This is a very sad day for us at The Cat Crossing.In short, no-kill shelter Cat Crossing has become something of a home for the near west side's large feral cat population. Food and warmth are provided to oft-nomadic cats of all ages. Those feral cats, which inevitably become "indoor cats" in winters like ours in Cleveland, were not taken by the APL.
