Editor, Manteca Bulletin,
This is a letter to the person (and I use that term loosely) who trapped and disposed of five cats this week in our Parkwest neighborhood. While one of the cats was probably un-owned, the others were beloved family pets who had been spayed and neutered and vaccinated. You had no right to take those cats. Whatever the issue was, the owners of those pets should have been given the opportunity to make things right. Who gave you the authority to be the judge and jury?
One of those cats belonged to my son and slept with him every night. Of course he went in your yard, you baited the trap with food! Shame on you for being such a hateful, selfish and unfeeling person. My son is heartbroken and angry over the loss of his companion. That’s a way to show him how a good neighbor is suppose to act. I don’t know how you sleep at night. I don’t know if you believe in God but I do and he has seen your heart and what you have done will be given back to you in equal measure. You don’t have to believe in God to know the rule of Karma. It will all come back to you in due time when you reap what you have sown.
