Cat Rescue Looks for New Location

MADISON TOWNSHIP, OH -- A Lake County cat rescue sanctuary needs the public's help or the cats may be forced out into the cold soon.

"Well, we have outgrown our facility. The building we are currently in is in very bad shape and we can't remodel it anymore," said Leslie Lawrence of the Holy Cat Whiskers rescue.

The Holy Cat Whiskers rescue sanctuary on Hubbard Road in Madison Township is running out of room to take care of their feral cats. Currently, the rescue facility runs out of a small, 600 sq. ft. house, which is not enough.

"We need more space, we need an isolation room, we need a room for pregnant mothers to come in and have their kittens and we need an emergency room as Holy Cat Whiskers is a 24-7 emergency hotline for Madison Township, so we get calls all hours," said Lawrence.

The Holy Cat Whiskers rescue is currently taking care of more than 40 cats of all sizes and breeds.

"But when they come into us, they are in very bad shape because they have been outside for so long, so they usually have upper respiratory, eye infections, no fur, flea infested, sometimes more serious situations, so our vet bills are very high," said Lawrence.

For the past five years, Holy Whiskers has been rescuing feral cats. It's a no-kill shelter, so the cats are cared for until they are adopted. Plus, they are sprayed and neutered.

Susan Brochak has been volunteering at the rescue for the past few years. She finds feral cats and feeds them during her lunch hour.

"They are very comfortable being outdoors, but they always need a good meal. So, we go out everyday, holidays included, we go out there and feed. One of the things I do Monday through Friday, I take my lunch and go out there and feed," said Brochak, who volunteers at the rescue.

The Holy Cat Whiskers sanctuary needs to find a home by the end of February so they can continue their good work in helping the cats.

    the sad part tho is probably most of these cats were taking from people considered hoarders and they had a home then. but now threaten to be euthanized because they cant find other owners that loves cats as much as those people called hoarders. well we have to find better ways to deal with hoarders then just taken the cats and punishing the owners for taking care of gods creature.

    • Jennifer

      As a volunteer with a different pet rescue, I can assure you that if an animal is taken from what is considered a hoarder, then they are NOT being taken care of. Often time they are sick, not spayed or neutered, and reproducing so that there are too many animals for the owner to handle. These animals usually have colds, dental problems, may be malnourished, and are very often incredibly unsocialized. If someone owns a lot of animals but is able to actually take care of them (including keeping things clean, having enough room for the animals to move around, having them all spayed/neutered, and keeping them all up to date on vet care) that is is not considered a hoarder.

      I know this because we often deal with hoarding situations. And it is not hard to find animals homes (my rescue has homed over 1800 cats and dogs just this last year alone). The issue is the medical costs that are required to get the animals READY for new homes. As the article says, feral cats are often some of the hardest animals to get up to date on vet care. Nobody wants to adopt an unhealthy animal. And there is a lot of cost and time involved in getting them ready. People also want socialized (read: friendly) pets, which are not often acquired from hoarding/feral situations and that also takes a LOT of time to get them to come around.

      • Chris Wesley

        hope that’s true because I have seen a hoarder that had about 20 cats and only 2 we kinda sick and he got fine and all his babies taken. he loved all the cats but still didn’t matter because just two were sick. I have seen people with 3 cats all together and one is sick and dying. I am sorry but I would rather be sick and dying the just plain dead. every breath counts especially when an animal.

    • Doris Hall

      my name is Doris Moss,and Chris i agree, but if the they’re not being vaccinated and have diseases’s then other neighborhood animals may be become infected, so hoarders should be investigated,,,i am willing to adopt or foster a kitten are you

    • leslie

      Dear Chris, Im thinking you did not understand what we do . We do not take cats from hoarders, we are a wild stray and Feral rescue. Wild strays were once belonging to owners who dumped them or got lost etc.
      We are a non-profit rescue registered with the state of OHIO. we vet them , make them healthy and fix and vaccinate them give them lots of love and adopt them out. We have a great adoption rate. And they get forever homes.

      • Tatijana G

        Hi Leslie, I posted a comment to you/your wonderful rescue further down on this list. Again, I’m so very happy that you are receiving donations and help. I truly hope you reach your goal to purchase/build a new shelter!! Your cats/kittens are fortunate to have the love, care and shelter that you provide for them. I loved my recent visit to the shelter…so many gorgeous, loving cats/kittens!!! May this New Year bring much luck and forever happiness to you, your wonderful volunteers and the beautiful, lucky kitties!! God Bless!

  • pokey

    None of these cats are taken from hoarders honestly some of them are from people that either leave them in a box on the.door step but most are from outside on their death bed or even abandoned homes

      • leslie

        We would love to have you visit us. you can see how many cats lives we save and how many people we help out here with strays in there back yard by providing them with low cost spay and neuter. Please don’t pass judgement till you have all the facts on rescue shelters.

    • FenceSitter

      I’m with you, TG. Woodsman seems to be a bit of a loose-cannon. Intentionally infecting an animal with parasites just to sure someone? That’s kind of twisted. Rabies has classically been spread by fleas. Many animals carry fleas. Parasites such as whipworm, hookworm, roundworm, etc are harbored in the SOIL. Tell me, Woodsman, how do you keep squirrels out of your yard? They have fleas and carry various parasites as do birds. Interesting world you must live in. And no, I don’t believe the common person thinks an annual rabies vaccine cures rabies, lol. You’re a hoot. A scary, unfortunate hoot that has too much time on their hands to search the internet for ‘convenient truths’ that back your conspiracy theories, but a hoot nonetheless. You come off as such so I’m not much worried about many people taking you seriously. Although you probably should get a psych eval.

      • woodsman001

        Thanks for proving yet again to the whole world just what kind of home-schooled blatant ignorance of cat-lickers that the rest of us are up against.

        FenceS*itter said, “Rabies has classically been spread by fleas.”

        LOL!

        Lucky for your kind that internet communications generally come with spell-check apps included these days. Then it’s not so easy for everyone to spot total ignorami like you, unless of course you continue to make comments and eventually state the blatantly absurd things that you can’t help but spewing, like you just did.

        I bet you hear the saying, “It is better to remain silent and be thought the fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt,” quite often.

  • woodsman001

    Be sure you test those cats for ALL of the following diseases, or I hope the recipient of one of them that is adopted-out or someone coming in contact with their disease-infested cats sues your city and politicians and every last TNR practitioner so bad that they never recover from it for the rest of their criminally negligent and criminally irresponsible sorry-excuses for lives. (For just one example of THOUSANDS, not long ago businesses in Miami were ruined by caretakers of feral-cats spreading hookworm in all the beaches. Lawsuits aplenty!) In fact, if I needed some cash, I’d even go out of my way to infect the cat that you gave me with one of these diseases and then sue the heII out of you for it. There’d be no way for you to prove that it didn’t come from what you did — we already know that you don’t test those cats for all these diseases because you’re already criminally-irresponsible and criminally-negligent to begin with, what cat-licker isn’t. (Stupid much? What cat-licker isn’t.)

    These are just the diseases these invasive species vermin cats have been spreading to humans, not counting the ones they spread to all wildlife. THERE ARE NO VACCINES against many of these, and are in-fact listed as bio-terrorism agents. They include: Afipia felis, Anthrax, Bartonella (Rochalimaea) henselae, Bergeyella (Weeksella) zoohelcum, Campylobacter Infection, Cat Scratch Disease, Chlamydia psittaci (feline strain), Cowpox, Coxiella burnetti Infection (Q fever), Cryptosporidium Infection, Cutaneous larva migrans, Dermatophytosis, Dipylidium Infection (tapeworm), Hookworm Infection, Leptospira Infection, Giardia, Neisseria canis, Pasteurella multocida, Plague, Poxvirus, Rabies, Rickettsia felis, Ringworm, Salmonella Infection, Scabies, Sporothrix schenckii, Toxocara Infection, Toxoplasmosis, Trichinosis, Visceral larva migrans, Yersinia pseudotuberculosis. [Centers for Disease Control, July 2010] Bovine Tuberculosis, Sarcosporidiosis, Flea-borne Typhus, Tularemia, and Rat-Bite Fever can now also be added to that list.

    Yes, “The Black Death” (the plague) is alive and well today and being spread by people’s cats this time around. People have already died from cat-transmitted plague in the USA. For a fun read, one of hundreds of cases, Google for: Cat-Transmitted Fatal Pneumonic Plague

    You did know, didn’t you, that giving a rabies shot to a cat that already has rabies does not cure it of rabies? Google for: RABID KITTEN ADOPTED WAKE COUNTY (for just one example of hundreds of rabid cats adopted from outdoors). The incubation period for rabies is, on average, from 21 to 240 days, sometimes up to 11 months, one rare case being 6 years. A vetted cat can STILL transmit rabies many months later (during the last 2 weeks before it dies of rabies) if it was harvested from unknown rabies-exposure conditions with an unknown vaccination history. May one of those cats you adopt-out have rabies too. Is your liability insurance in excess of $10M? Either quarantine them for 6 or more months at your OWN expense (as required by national and international law), or euthanize them. Those are your only 2 options to be relatively certain you are not handing rabies to someone. Isn’t reality fun?

    Google for: RABIES PROMPTS CARLSBAD TNR CAT PROGRAM SUSPENSION

    Rabies Outbreak Caused by TNR! 50+ Pets Euthanized. ALL Stray Cats Destroyed. All livestock destroyed. More than a dozen homeowners pay for their own $3000+ rabies shots for EACH family member.

    Google for: Rabies Outbreak in Westchester County

    Google for: Rabid Kitten Jamestown Exposure

    There’s hundreds more like those on the net showing everyone how these phenomenally ignorant and foolish cat-lickers “help” their communities by allowing TNR CAT-HOARDERS to continue their criminally negligent behavior. And contrary to these cat-lickers’ perpetual LIES, feeding stray cats TRAINS them to approach humans for food. What do you think happens to the child or foolish adult that reaches down to try to pet or pick up that now seemingly friendly “cute kitty” that just approached them? The wild animal lashes out and bites or scratches the hand that has no food for them. Resulting in $3000+ rabies shots for each victim of a cat-feeder’s criminally negligent behavior, paid for out of the victim’s OWN pockets. Two reports even document rabid cats entering a pet-door and one even came through the family’s ceiling in search of human supplied foods, the attack so bad that the whole family required hospitalization.

    This is why even the CDC has issued direct warnings against the use of these failed TNR programs anywhere and everywhere: onlinelibrary.wiley D0T com SLASH doi/10.1111/zph.12070/abstract

    The TNR CON-GAME

    FACT: Trap & Kill failed because cats cannot be trapped faster than they exponentially breed out of control.

    FACT: Trap, Neuter, & Re-Abandon (TNR) is an even bigger abject failure because these man-made ecological disasters cannot be trapped faster than they exponentially breed out of control, and they also continue to cruelly annihilate all native wildlife (from the smallest of prey up to the top predators that are starved to death), and the cats continue to spread many deadly diseases that they carry today — FOR WHICH THERE ARE NO VACCINES AGAINST THEM. Many of which are even listed as bioterrorism agents. (Such as Tularemia and The Plague — Yes, people have already died from cat-transmitted plague in the USA. No fleas nor rats even required. The cats themselves carry and transmit the plague all on their own.)

    FACT: THERE IS ABSOLUTELY _NOTHING_ HUMANE ABOUT TNR. Nearly every last TNR’ed cat dies an inhumane death by road-kill, from cat and animal attacks, environmental poisons, starvation, dehydration, freezing to death, infections, eaten from the inside-out by parasites, etc. And if very very lucky humanely shot to death or re-trapped and drowned (the two most common methods employed on all farms and ranches to protect their gestating livestock’s offspring and valuable native wildlife dying from cats’ Toxoplasmosis parasites). This doesn’t begin to count the thousands of defenseless native animals that cats skin alive and disembowel alive for their daily and hourly play-toys. And pitting cat against cat to fight-to-the-death for territory is ABSOLUTELY NO DIFFERENT than those who run criminal dog-fight rings to see who wins. They spend YEARS in jail. IT IS A HIGHLY PUNISHABLE CRIME TO FORCE *ANY* DOMESTICATED ANIMALS TO FIGHT EACH OTHER FOR THEIR VERY SURVIVAL.

    FACT: The only difference in destroying cats immediately and humanely instead of trapping, sterilizing, then releasing them to an inhumane death and forcing them to fight-to-the-death for survival; is that money isn’t going into Becky Robinson’s Alley-Cat-All-Lies pocket, or an HSUS or SPCA board-member’s pocket, veterinarian’s pocket, cat-food company CEO’s pocket, or a drug-company CEO’s pocket. And that’s the ONLY difference! Support yet another organization that exploits and perpetuates the suffering of animals for their own personal financial gain, then try to sleep well at night.

    FACT: These manipulative, deceptive, and deceitful TNR proponents are now clipping cats ears ONLY. WITHOUT vaccinations nor sterilizing them. They do this to save money and protect their outdoor hoarded cat colonies from being trapped and euthanized by the state because the clipped-ear shows officials that they have been sterilized and vaccinated. Why pay $140 for each cat and all that time when just a trap and a simple snip of scissors on each one can also protect their hoarded cats from being destroyed? (I have absolute proof of this.)

    FACT: Cats are a man-made (through selective breeding) invasive species. And as such, are no less of a man-made environmental disaster than any other caused by man. Cats are even worse than an oil-spill of continent-sized proportions. They not only kill off rare and endangered marine-mammals along all coastlines from run-off carrying cats’ Toxoplasma gondii parasites, they destroy the complete food-chain in every ecosystem where cats are found. From smallest of prey gutted and skinned alive for cats’ tortured play-toys, up to the top predators that are starved to death from cats destroying their ONLY food sources. (Precisely what cats caused on my own lands not long ago.)

    FACT: Hunted To Extinction (or in this case, extirpation of all outdoor cats) is the ONLY method that is faster than a species like cats can exponentially out-breed and out-adapt to. Especially a man-made invasive species like these cats that can breed 2X-4X’s faster than any naturally occurring cat-species.

    FACT: In _FOURTEEN_YEARS_ Alley Cat ALL-LIES branch of NYC have only reduced feral cats in their own city by 0.08% to 0.024% (as the months go on that percentage becomes more insignificant), allowing more than 99.92% to 99.976% to exponentially breed out of control. Here’s how Alley-Cat-ALL-LIES’ deceptive math works: If you TNR 4 cats and 3 get flattened by cars this translates to 75% fewer feral-cats everywhere. Alley Cat ALL-LIES of NYC can’t even reduce cats in their own city, yet they promote it as a worldwide solution. Then even bigger fools fall for it and promote it.

    FACT: When researching over 100 of the most “successful” TNR programs worldwide, JUST ONE trapped more than 0.4%. Oregon’s 50,000 TNR’ed cats (the highest rate I found) is 4.9% of all ferals in their state. Yet, by applying population growth calculus on the unsterilized 95.1% they will have trapped only 0.35% of all cats in their state sometime this year. Less than 0.4% is a far cry from the required 75%-85% to be the least bit effective.

    FACT: Their mythical “vacuum effect” is a 100% LIE. A study done by the Texas A&M University proved that any perceived “vacuum” is just the simple case that CATS ATTRACT CATS. Get rid of them all and there are no cats there to attract more. I proved this myself by shooting and burying hundreds of them on my own lands. ZERO cats replaced them FOR FOUR YEARS NOW. If you want more cats, keep even one of them around, more will find you. That university study also found that sterilized cats very poorly defend any territory. Non-sterilized cats, being more aggressive, take over the sterilized cats’ resources (shelter & food if any). If there is any kind of “vacuum effect” at all, it is that sterilizing cats cause non-sterilized cats to restore the reproductive void.

    FACT: During all this investigation I have discovered something that is unfaltering without fail. Something that you can bet your very life on and win every last time. That being — IF A TNR CAT-HOARDER IS TALKING THEN THEY ARE LYING. 100% guaranteed!

  • TG

    I don’t like the above comments made by this so-called Woodsman guy. He even stated that he, himself shot and buried hundreds of cats on his own lands in the comment above. Is anyone paying attention to his awful comments. He most obviously seems to dislike cats! I think he needs to be investigated. The man has some serious issues/problems!!

    • woodsman001

      The law in the USA is that it is perfectly legal to destroy any animal, someone’s pet or not, that is threatening the health, well-being, and safety of yourself, your family, your animals, or even your property. Also true even in most densely populated cities, firearms laws permitting, if not then 700-1200fps air-rifles with vermin-pellets are commonly used. The newer ones even come with a sound-suppressor design built right-in, being designed specifically for shooting vermin cats in urban areas, the demand is that great. The only animals exempt from you taking immediate action, legally, are those listed on endangered or threatened species lists, regulated game-animals (hunting season only, except for designated “small game” on your own lands which is year-’round no-license in most states), and any bird species under protection of MBTA (the Migratory Bird Treaty Act). Even then variances can be given should there be sufficient problem but this requires further study by authorities. Since cats are listed in the TOP 100 WORST invasive species of the world in the “Global Invasive Species Database” ( issg D0T org SLASH database/species/ecology D0T asp?si=24&fr=1&sts=sss ), this means they have no protection whatsoever from being shot on sight, they are not on any protected species list anywhere in the world. Quite the opposite as a matter of fact. And if your area enforces and obeys invasive species laws — as they should — then it is against the law to NOT destroy any cat on sight, someone’s pet or not. It is your civic and moral responsibility to destroy any invasive species that is found away from supervised confinement and roaming freely in a non-native habitat.

      (This is precisely how I managed to clear out every last one of hundreds of these invasive species vermin cats from my own lands. On the sound advice of the sheriff. Even he found that trying to reason with and warn the cat-lickers did no good. But shooting every last cat finally worked! My lands have been 100% cat-free for 4 years now, for less than the price of a couple cups of coffee for the ammo — on close-out sale, 5000 rounds for $15. That’s THREE cats sterilized, permanently vaccinated against ALL diseases, and also given a permanent “loving forever home” (2ft. under) so they can no longer destroy any more native wildlife — PER PENNY!)

      Aside: Poisons may also be used on any species that has been listed as a “vermin” species. Not so surprisingly, stray cats have been listed as “vermin” in the USA since the early 1900’s.

      Shoot to maim is punishable under the laws that define animal-cruelty, and rightly so, (these are the ONLY cases that cat-lickers cite to try to manipulate and scare everyone from shooting their only favorite animal). But shoot to kill is a perfectly legal way to humanely destroy an animal. The same laws and principles that apply to methods of humanely hunting animals also applies to cats. (Hint: outfit your rifle with a good scope and laser-sight, inexpensive on ebay. This will ensure a totally humane, instant, and LEGAL kill each and every time. Though use a fatal chest-shot, a head-shot is not always a sure thing.) Unlike cat-lickers’ psychotic beliefs, the reality is that a cat is just another animal. It’s NOT their baby, their child, their offspring. Even if they do view their cats that way, letting them roam free is no less criminally irresponsible than them telling their child to go play in the freeway and then blaming the cars for their child’s death. If they let their cat roam free, NO MATTER HOW IT DIES, that is THEIR fault and they can be charged with all laws that clearly define animal-neglect, animal-abandonment, and animal-endangerment. Not to mention being in direct violation of all international invasive species laws in existence.

      In fact, here’s a publication from a study done by the University of Nebraska on the best ways to HUMANELY deal with a feral-cat problem wherever you live. This documentation INCLUDES the best firearms, ammo, and air-rifles required to HUMANELY destroy cats. deenawinter D0T files D0T wordpress D0T com SLASH 2010/12/ec1781.pdf

      Besides, what difference does it make if the cat gets shot or ran over by a car; attacked by another cat or animal; drowned; or poisoned by plants, animals, or chemicals (inexpensive 1-adult-strength generic acetaminophen pain-relievers gaining in popularity, for being so species specific, far far safer than antifreeze and rat-poisons that cat-lickers have forced everyone else into using lately — a method now even condoned by Audubon, National Geographic, and Smithsonian). The result is the same. The cause is the same — the fault of the criminally irresponsible pet-owner that let their invasive species pet roam free. They’ve already proved that their animal is 100% expendable. You can either destroy their cat for them humanely, or let their lack of care cause it to inevitably die inhumanely. They don’t care one bit how their cat might cruelly suffer to death if they let it roam free. Humanely destroy their cat for them before that can happen. A well aimed bullet is the MOST humane death that ANY stray or feral cat can ever look forward to. Any other death that their cats WILL eventually face from their criminal negligence is all inhumanely downhill from there.

      Now, aren’t you glad that you questioned the legality of it all. Now EVERYONE knows how to deal with your vermin invasive species cats — THE RIGHT AND SANE WAY.

    This rescue is currently in a building that was at one time a house, and also a small retail shop. It is not currently a house – no one lives there, other than the cats. The shelter is teamed with PetSmart to do adoptions and are a valid, registered not-for-profit organization and is not in any way the result of ‘hoarding’. For anyone that is unaware, PetSmart sends out a representative to see if the shelter is fit prior to pairing with them to do adoptions. The majority of cats were injured, found abandoned in homes after tenants moved and left them, found in cardboard boxes in ditches, etc. No one from this shelter goes and ‘takes’ anyone’s cat, nor are they a dumping ground for people who conveniently want to just unload their pets. HCW has organized multiple low cost spay/neuter PetFix clinics for the community and has taken on the responsibility of spaying and neutering ferals so the population does not continue growing. Humans have to take responsibility. If people would spay/neuter, there would be less of an issue.

  • woodsman001

    Can you spell “HOAX” & “FRAUD”?

    It appears that these TNR cat-lickers (criminal cat-advocates) who re-spew all the highly manipulative and deceptive lies and misinformation of Alley-Cat-All-Lies didn’t do their due-diligence research. Here’s another fun FACT for them:

    bbb D0T org SLASH charity-reviews/national/animal-protection/alley-cat-allies-in-bethesda-md-107/financial

    They don’t even meet the criteria to qualify for being a reputable charity organization under “Better Business Bureau” standards. While Becky and all her close friends are laughing all the way to the bank to the tune of $5M in assets with a $6M income.

    They all just flew to Hawaii not long ago for another “cat-conference” because, for some unknown reason, they had to be there to discuss these issues.

    While you’re at it, for another good laugh, don’t forget to check out how much Becky and her friend pay themselves in just ONE year with everyone else’s money.

    bbb D0T org SLASH charity-reviews/national/animal-protection/alley-cat-allies-in-bethesda-md-107/governance-and-staff

    They have now been launching some damage-control in all social media with their new “Future Five” program to prove to everyone their true and trustworthy intentions. Awarding a princely $5,000 grant to some deserving group. $5,000 is only 0.1% of their assets, 0.08% of their yearly income. They might as well just sh** in the face of every last fool that ever donated to them. LOL

    Support yet another organization that exploits and perpetuates the suffering of animals for their own personal financial gain, then try to sleep well at night.

    … This just keeps getting more “curiouser and curiouser”. Donna Wilcox, Vice President and Chair of the Board of Directors of “Alley Cat All-Lies”, may not even be who she claims to be at their site’s biography pages.

    She was only an office-administrator at D.C.’s office of “Natural Resources Defense Council”. No doubt just to learn about her opposition to her warped and ecologically destructive and twisted beliefs. (For she has most certainly proved to know absolutely nothing about biology and ecology just by the very nature of what she is doing. E.g. If they believe these cats are a natural part of the environment and deserve to be out in nature, then why are they even bothering to sterilize them? Their agreement to sterilize them is their very agreement that they don’t even belong out in nature in the very first place. Stupid, ignorant, hypocrite much?)

    She also claims to hold a B.S. in biology from a “Notre Dame College” in South Euclid, Ohio.

    In fact, if you do a Google search on (include quotes): “notre dame college” “south euclid” “donna wilcox”, it comes up empty. Except of course, for the one page at “Alley Cat All-Lies” where they allow her to make this claim.

    Did she even graduate from elementary-school? No matter what combination of search-strings I use I can’t find any evidence of her holding any type of degree at all; nor having any formal education in any school system anywhere — only that which she claims about herself and publishes on her own various social-media bio pages.

    Are any of “Alley Cat All-Lies” staff who they claim they are?

  • FenceSitter

    Woodsman, you’re clearly a troll. Fox 8 has been kind enough to help a legitimate organization help their community by controlling the animal population and find homes for adoptable pets. The News-Herald has done the same as well as other media groups. While some of the things you say are fact (few and far between) you should be banned from commenting anywhere when you promote shooting/poisoning animals. I’d hate to see what happens to the humans you don’t like.

    I’m choosing to focus on the fact that this organization is all-volunteer, helps the community and has made a positive, impactful difference in the area. Holy Cat Whiskers is a worthwhile organization, spays/neuters the animals they claim to, and seeks medical care when applicable. No one is lining their pockets with imaginary funds or jetting off on vacations. The volunteers are all people in the community that have businesses, families, lives, jobs, responsibilities of their own… but they find the time to volunteer and do good things. There are no paychecks collected. There are no kickbacks. Often volunteers use their own personal funds to purchase food, litter and meds.

    I’m thankful local media, including Fox 8, has picked up this story.

    • woodsman001

      And yet, for all that, NOT ONE OF YOU CAT-LICKING CRETINS HAVE BEEN ABLE TO REFUTE EVEN ONE THING I HAVE POSTED.

      Why is that? Is this all you got?

      For example: I’ve been posting that list of TNR CON-GAME FACTS for 3 years, and in all this time, not even ONE of you psychotic cat-lickers has been able to refute even one of them. You know, ignorami just like you. Your only defense is to censor that information or make claims about the mental-faculties of the poster.

      That’s no defense. Those are the hallmarks of a highly ignorant cat-licking TROLL.

      I quite like seeing when these fringe LUNATIC TNR supporters try to get my posts censored.

      Simple reason being: The very last bastion of the blind-followers of any wholly proved false and completely failed religion — censorship.

      Just like TNR is a now 100% disproved religion; a religion based on nothing but wishful thinking, self-centered and self-aggrandized feel-good imaginings, and psychotic conjecture. AND ZERO FACTS.

      Whenever these TNR lunatics try to get my posts deleted they have publicly admitted to the whole world that their TNR religion is 100% false and they’ve got no other way to defend their imaginary beliefs against truthful statements and hard-core facts based on reality.

      They have single-handedly denounced the whole concept of TNR in their simple wish for censorship. But then, like I’ve always said, cat-lickers are always dumber than their cats. Why do you think their cats can outsmart them so often to get away from them? Even their own cats are desperate to not be around them!

    • Tatijana G

      Thank You (FenceSitter) for saying such wonderful, positive things about Holy Cat Whiskers rescue….all so true!!

  • anne

    I’m guessing no one is refuting what you have to say because no one is taking your bait and that seems to have made you resort to all sorts of insults and name calling. There is no such thing as a one-sided debate. Keep it classy, Woodsman001.

    • woodsman001

      I keep it just as “classy” as every last cat-licker who thinks it’s perfectly fine for their cats to spray their urine and fluids all over everyone’s property and cr*p in everyone’s yards and gardens and spreading their deadly diseases everywhere.

      I now only use online cat-lickers like my sad little show-n’-tell puppets. To prove to everyone in the world beyond any shadow of a doubt in the universe; that no matter how much we try to educate you, reason with you, argue with you, beg with you, and even plead with you; that it will do NOTHING to stop you from perpetuating the destruction of life on this planet with your piece-of-sh** cats. The ONLY thing that works is destroying every last one of your cats for you.

      This can ONLY be solved WITHOUT YOU. Asking people like you for help and advice to solve the very problem that YOU created and are hellbent on perpetuating is just as foolish as for someone to ask their local career-thieves for their advice and help to hide their valuables from their daily motives, goals, and activities.

      YOU ARE THE PROBLEM — YOU CAN’T BE PART OF THE SOLUTION.

      You now deserve the EXACT same amount of consideration and respect as you’ve given and shown to every other life-form on the planet — NONE. ABSOLUTELY NONE.

      The very moment that you are cut from the solution equation it solves itself, 100%!

    In case you are curious — the term that I use of “cat licker” is justifiably and accurately gleaned from the growing fad of people who are obsessed with cats and want to do everything possible to make their cats feel good at the expense of all that is reasonable and sane.

    They are now licking their cats clean.

    It’s just another one of the many aberrant and mentally-ill behaviors of “cat lickers”.

    I cannot, in all good conscience and honesty, EVER use the term “cat lover” again to describe these heartless and spineless cretins. People who love cats do not throw them under the wheels of moving cars, let them lap-up antifreeze in a gutter, or force them to attack one another to fight-to-the-death for territory by letting their cats roam free. (One of the main selling points of TNR, forcing their cats to fight-to-the-death for territory. Absolutely no different than people who run criminal dog-fight rings to see who wins. Both just as guilty of animal abuse. There are many laws in place that make it a highly punishable crime to force domesticated animals to fight each other for their very survival.)

    “Cat Lover” is an extremely oxymoronic label.

    “Cat Licker” is the only one that accurately works today.

    Dear Leslie,…I’m so happy that you are receiving donations and the support is coming in. I love the FOX 8 coverage video as well as the rest of them as they clearly illustrate the wonderful job you do. Thank You, Leslie for being such an asset to our community. You and your volunteers are very caring and giving! As you know, I have a great love for animals, especially cats…Thank You for helping them! I had a pleasant time on a recent visit to your wonderful HCW facility. So many beautiful, sweet, affectionate and well-taken care of cats/kittens. It is so obvious that you and your volunteers spend a lot of quality time socializing these cats. I’m glad they have shelter, care and most importantly…LOVE!! I hope you continue to receive the much needed help you need to build/purchase a new shelter.
