I took a video of the way an apartment after eviction. In this particular case, the sheriff was not called but the tenant left of his own accord after getting the Order from the Landlord & Tenant Board. I’m no photographer or videographer but I think you can still see the main things you need to see.
There were a lot of factors involved in this situation including some alcoholism and some mental illness. I’m not a Psychologist but there is evidence of inability to take care of basic life skills, like cleaning or working.
One of the items I’ve mentioned before in regards to people who collect social assistance is the lack of resources. Unless they are working or have family to help out it’s just impossible to feed yourself. This particular individual also smoked and drank heavily. One of the escalating problems with this eviction is that 9 cats were left behind. Here’s how that happens. You get one cat and can’t afford to get it spayed. The cat using the wisdom of the ages escapes when in heat. The cat had kittens. Our friend couldn’t give the all kittens away so they grew up. There were now 4 cats, momma cat and 3 babies. The babies got older, momma falls in love again and bingo bango, we have 5 more kittens (also cute) So if our tenant can’t spay one cat and give 3 kittens away, how are they going to spay 4 and find homes for 5 more? In any case the cats are healthy and have food and are very friendly. The female kitten from the first litter is also probably pregnant.
No One Wants Your Illegitimate Cats
Through the miracle of landlord tenant law, the tenant’s cats become the landlord’s cats. Of course if you can sell them, you can keep the money to set off your expenses in storing the “property”
No one wants your cats my friends, you’ll have better luck giving away cases of syphillis than cats, especially if they are attached to kittens, or are possibly pregnant. It’s even better if the most likely suspect for your cat’s pregnancy is the cat’s brother. That’s just a whole barrel full of fun for the landlord to enjoy.
In any case I did find a home for the two male cats. The cats are friendly and well socialized and they were clearly very happy to get the hell out of that basement. Usually when a cat is adopted out, it runs under the nearest bed and hides there for a week or two. These cats were exploring and getting patted a few minutes after being in their new home. To reward me for finding their new home, one of them took a very smelly poop in the cat carrying cage on the way over. I had to open the window, it was completely vile. Don’t worry it stuck to the very back/bottom of the crate and had to be scraped out just for giggles. That’s what I like about being a property manager, my cat carer duties.
