Daryl, My cat was left behind in a home that was scheduled for demolition eight years ago. Fortunately, the contractor who found him was one of my best friends and I've enjoyed Rip's companionship ever since. I can't understand this kind of utter disregard for animal life.

I don't get it either, Dana. Very sad.

If this happened months ago what is holding up the investigation? Obviously the landlord had to have the social for the tennant. Why can't that be used to track the tennant down?

Poor animals-just think how they felt when they realized no one was coming for them
