To the editor:
A big fluffy male cat came to our house when we moved to September Estates five years ago. Don't know where he came from but he's been with us, McCabes and Smiths, ever since. He is current with his shots and we had a microchip implanted. God Bless that chip.
On Christmas Eve someone trapped him and took him to Cape Coral. He found a kind family that has been taking care of him. They took him to their vet to make sure he was healthy and then take him to a no-kill shelter. Of course, the vet scanned him and there was our chip. We try to keep him in as much as we can but he scoots out every chance he gets. Most of the neighbors know him and he visits in their houses for a short time and then leaves. He visits the Smiths where he is routinely groomed, knows where the grooming area is and he waits. He's well fed and doesn't kill birds and the like. He does, however, keep stray cats away which is a good thing.
He will be home tonight or tomorrow at the latest. Please, if you live in September Estates or Tropic Isles, if you see Blackie and you don't want him around, call me at 283-1412. Please don't take it upon yourself to relocate him again. Not only is it mean, it is against the law.
