Customer Question
I have played and let...
I have played and let my feral cats crawl all over me, now after 6 months the board claims they are a health risk to other pets in the condos. I must keep my garage door closed and not feed them. I keep my garage door open about 5 inches where I have three heated beds for them when it gets cold.

Thank you for helping these cats. I am sorry your condo board is not happy about them being there.

How can I help you; what is your question?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
The board wants me to refrain from feeding them which I now feed them aways away. But the problem is it is cold here and I leave my garage door open about 5 inches late at night and close it around 4 AM in the morning. I have 3 heated beds for them in the garage. Can I get around this and not get in trouble and leave my garage door open late at night?
Cat Veterinarian: Rebecca, Cat Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

I can't answer questions about what your board will allow; you many need a legal expert for that. I can answer health questions about the cats, but I am not a legal expert, sorry.
