    Thank you for the neutering job and four months room and board
    Four and a half months ago a kitty adopted a man on Ripple Ave. He photographed it and hung flyers around and when no one claimed it, the man decided to keep it and had it neutered etc. The cat had free rein of the neighborhood but came home every night. One night, it didn’t come home. Turns out the neighbors had put it in their house and were claiming it was their cat. They brought over a child who cried and said it was his cat, four months later. They have paid for the neutering. The cat has escaped once and came back, but the man has pretty much written the incident off.

    Animal welfare
    Someone reported that some dogs in a motor home might be in need of assistance, but when the officer arrived the dogs did not appear to be in distress, and weren’t panting. The officer left a note for the owner, who later called and said his family had lost their home and were staying in the motor home, parking near the beach in the daytime and going to a campground at night. The dogs had food and water and the vent of the motor home is left open.

    Bark bark bark
    The dogs hadn’t been an issue for a long time, but when the reporting party came in to the police station the dogs had been barking through the night. The officer left a message for the dogs’ owner who called and said she would deal with the pet sitter.

    (Bark bark bark)
    Dogs were reported on Melrose Pl., but when the officer got there, there were no barking dogs. The reporting party said she figured the owners had come home and taken the dogs in.

    Chomp chomp chomp
    In the night the reporting party hear noises coming from outside. The dog began to growl and she thought she heard it chasing someone. She brought it in the house and discovered it had blood on its mouth and paws. When she tried to examine it it tried to bite her, which was odd. Then she discovered it had a lump on its head. A vet confirmed that yes, it definitely had a lump on its head. Could have been thumped with something or another.
