|It has taken me 2 weeks to be able to type this without falling apart but I felt I needed to just to get a few thoughts from ya'll.
About 8 months ago a few neighbors and I reported my creepy neighbor to animal control as we caught him beating his lab into the pavement, this was not the 1st time I have witnessed his animal abuse (way long story) I have seen him in action for over 10 yr, I had finally had enough. Well, our terrible animal control officer felt "sorry" for his wife and gave them all of our written complaints complete with names, addresses and phone #'s, she said that the wife "felt threatened by the complaints" (WHAT??!!)
Well between that time and now, everyone who made the complaints have recieved letters stating that we were going to be sued if we continued with the "slander", we kept it up hoping we would be a loud voice for their abused pets.
Animal control dropped the ball big time, they closed the case without even investigating as we did not have video just blurry pictures and loud audio of the guy yelling and the dog screaming. Not enough for some reason.
Since then everyone involved have found strange food in our yards such as biscuits, apples with white residue, old meat, some of our cars have been vandalized, broken into, my husbands jeep had a part taken off of it and my friends new car was broken into and torn apart, no one elses cars were messed with just the people who made the complaints.
Well 2 weeks ago, my new 3 month old kitten, Charlotte was sitting out in our kitty enclosure which has a beautiful fountain in it for the kittys to enjoy, she had been sitting on the fountain happily pawing at the water, scooping up the water and licking her foot, I was in the kitchen watching her, she was completely normal, healthy in every way. Within a few hours she was just sitting on the deck looking very strange, she vomited violently and collasped. I scooped her up and left for the Vet I work with, within a few hours she was gone. I was in complete shock. What happened.
I ordered a complete necropsy with toxicology as we were instantly suspicious of a toxin. I do not have any toxins anywhere in my yard, shed, garage or house because of my pets.
Within a week we had the complete results, antifreeze!!! I had my thoughts about the fountain instantly and sure enough, it had antifreeze in it. OMG!!!
I know in my heart that it is my neighbor, he said he would make sure "it hurt" and my pets are the way to definately get to me. Another neighbors cat also passed away unexpectly, now her older dog is sick.
The other thing now that makes complete sense is that my other cat, Putter, who was diabetic went into acute, complete kidney failure overnight in March. My Vet thinks that it had nothing to do with his diabetes as he was doing great with his numbers and his kidney values were WNL right before that.
And to top it all off, my dog, just had a huge bout with pancreatitis (never had any problems) which led us to do an ultrasound discovering a growth on his spleen, he had emergency surgery that day. Now that we put 2 and 2 together, there was no reason for his pancreatitis which led to his spleen problem. We discussed it today with his personal Vet and he also thinks something was in our yard that led to his problem.
We now have video cameras and signs up surveying our entire property. I cannot believe we have come to this but I will do anything to protect my pets.
I cannot let this continue ruin my home, I am never this negative and not a vengeful person but I want his butt on a skewer. He needs to be caught!
Thanks for reading my long story, any thoughts on how to proceed with this? Anyone out there ever have a problem like this?
Charlotte was only 3 months old, she now has beautiful angel wings.
