    I would do the same.

    What you say Angela falls within the law in QLD, however, it is not law in Vic! (I know, why is it different?????? a number of reasons, another time another thread perhaps) Anyway, after saying that, by law in Victoria, any stray animal must do its time at the pound. It must also be said that at this moment in time, our pounds are overflowing to the point where AAPS are currently (and sadly) not accepting kittens, Mildura are actually SHOOTING kittens and the council pounds and RSPCA are putting down for things as simple as fleas......so in essence, given this kitty was flea infested, she realistically may not have made it back out the front door of the pound - at least not breathing. It is one of those really difficult situations that has many complications, and although I am bound by law in rescue (being an incorporated body), I would truly be torn in this situation knowing the very sad facts about our pounds atm. So, I guess to put up posters, advise ALL the vet clinics in the area (each and every one) and even going so far as putting an add in the local rag (and keeping an eye open for a lost add as well), whilst the legal law has been broken, the laws of humanity must count for something.

    Again, I do not envy your position Pugger.

    After saying all of that, should an owner appear from somewhere and want to take responsibility of the kitty (remembering she is not chipped), please let me know and I will happily organise you a Cornish Rex (or 2 or 3 lol) who is looking for a home

    Occy I am still looking for the owners. The chip can be transferred into their name.. what she had done today needed to be done anyway. I figured with the chip in, if she is an escape artist or does get out, she will be brought back here instead of becoming road kill or end up in the wrong hands where she may be harmed. I am still putting up notices and I will contact the shelter tomorrow and give them my details so if anyone phones looking for her, they can contact me. If they can prove she is theirs they can pay me back for the chip and vaccine and have their cat back. They would have had to pay to get her out of the pound anyway. If the cat rescue mob got her she would have been listed for sale right away.

    Please stop accusing me of stealing her.

    AAPS are certainly taking kittens- when I was there a few weeks ago for a temp assessment at least 5 ppl came in with cats to surrender - some with multiples from cages set.

    Are you serious about that? My kids would be wanting a cat if Precious has to go, so I would probably take you up on that offer although if they are as naughty as you say they are.. I'm not so sure it's a good idea.

    AAPS are totally overflowing. They have not accepted a shar pei for months now, and perhaps the week you were there some cat space was available, however it changes week to week atm - with all their animals. And it is an awful, sad and pathetic situation. This has been written up in the paper of recent times and I am also in fairly regular communcation with them - given that they used to accept pei from council pounds all over Melbourne and now they go directly to me. Our pounds and shelters ARE in dire straights atm, I have not made it that way, so please don't shoot the messenger. I do deal with a lot of rescue groups (cats and dogs) and shelters and we are all complaining of the same thing which is a total lack of space. If I didn't have the property to move to any minute, SPR would have closed its doors for the time being a week ago. As it is, I am putting 4 dogs "off" until I can actually get in to the house. The other states are completely full. 3 of the 4 dogs awaiting room availability are flying in from interstate.

    Occy, I hear what you are saying, I also hear what is being said by those involved in rescue and pounds atm, and again I say the situation is truly dire. I do agree with you that Pugger should contact the local pound and chat to them as they will turn cart wheels to work in with her IF they can. And I am pleased to see that Pugger has already said she will do so.

    And yes Pugger, a rex is very easy for me to organise for you. Again, because Rex Rescue is another who have closed their books to newbies for the time being. Which is exactly how I have ended up with Lionel and Millie in my spare room, as if I couldn't take them, they would have been pts. Devons are naughtier than Cornish Pugger. I love Devons because they are such clowns, but a Cornish might be a better fit for you! Eitherway, you can take your pick. Both are low allegenic

    Oh don't tempt me, Shar!

    Pugger, Cornish Rex (and Devon Rex) are just brilliant breeds. I totally love their character and also love the unique look of them ascetically. Gorgeous.

    Well, depends what happens with the kitty you have now. She mightn't have an owner in the end, and then you're it! Lol.

    You know, it just occurred to me - I'm glad in in Tassie!

    Otherwise I'd have lots of Cornish Rex, Devon Rex and would have bough Occy's two Oriental crosses.

    Phew.
