    The differences between cat lovers and cat haters will never be worked out. Better chance that the two sides of a holy war will settle their differences.

    My stepmom feeds all the strays too... She catches them one by one and gets them all spayed and neutered . Otherwise kindness can lead to some problems.. And the neighbors that live next to you ,that don't want cats, know that feeding 10 stray cats (that aren't fixed ) will turn into about 50 cats in a matter of months.. I'm not sure what the answer is here.. Maybe talking with them , might lead to the neighbors helping with the situation.. Even people that don't want cats on their property, rarely want to see cats harmed. Although smashing food bowls is an assanine thing to do.. Hopefully you can work something out. Before they start trapping them and hauling them to animal control..or worse..

    You maybe be able to get help from your local SPCA or organizion, with some type of Trap-Neuter-Return program.
    You have a kind heart :)

    One more thing.. If you DO go talk to neighbors.. Be sure to scoop up the cutest kitten you can find, and carry it over there. Even the most staunch cat hater can't resist a cute cuddly kitten...

    Kittens are easily adopted I suggest taking them straight to the SPCA.

    Thank you,These cats are nowhere any homes or people,Most have been spayed and certainly no Tom Cats at all..I have myself found many of them homes..None of the are feral cats and many at one time were normal house cats..I try to pat each and every one of them everyday just so they have some human contact..Most of them are just beautiful.

    Then I'm even more confused. If you live in an isolated area without neighbors.. Why would someone seek you out trespass against you and destroy your private property? Maybe you can set up a camera of some kind to make a case against them. Trespassing and destruction of private property/vandalism.. It has to be someone living close by?

    What about the possibility of it being a bunch of school kids passing thru? Kids sometimes don't think about the things they do. Breaking things just for the "fun of it".. Maybe it's just a one time incident..

    Here is one of my stray cat experences. I used to live on my grand mothers land. Out in the country. Dead End road. Other people get tired of there cats, And Dogs for that matter. Would drive by and dump them out. Grand Mother would feel sorry for them and feed them, They wont leave then. They multiply. Get under the house, Tear stuff up. Then I'm the one expected to get rid of them. So being kind to a few strays can turn in to a big problem.

    Here is another Cat situation My wife encounterd years ago. When our daughter was a baby, They went to my wifes brothers house. He was I guess you call a collecter. Cats were every where. The place was filthy. Cat Shit every where. Cat scratched my daughter. Wife and her Sil. Got in a fight about it. Wife come home and called the humane society, They come out and picked up 49 cats. Wif did not even speak to them for allmost 15 years. There was more to it than just the cats, But I'm not going there.

    I'm going to pick up my new kitty from the local humane society tomorrow! He will be my Valentine's Day present. :D
    D said I could get him, so I have to move before she changes her mind!
