Sorry to see EveryBlock going

I saw online that Nextdoor asks for your exact address and there is a way that you have to choose for people not to be able to see it. I did see that there were instances of adult bullying and harassment from people getting your address and info so I just wanted to let people know before they switched over. In case I decide not to join you all there it has been nice communicating with some "neighbors" here on EveryBlock. Keep up the good neighboring friends.

Rest In Peace

For the cat I called Buddy who was TNRd and then abandoned by his "caretaker" I want to tell people that you will be missed and you were loved.

I was feeding him and the other abandoned cats that were left behind. On Saturday some neighbors told me different versions of the same story about a cat being killed in the street. I have since come to believe it was Buddy. No one else may have cared but I am terribly sad and it is a shame that he died like this.

Rest in peace Buddy. You deserved better.

  • Thank you Leslie. I wish I had a picture of him. I don't consider I made his life better at all. All I did was feed him and talk to him. He deserved much better. I believe all animals (like children) deserve loving homes. In a perfect world, right, I...

    Thank you Leslie. I wish I had a picture of him. I don't consider I made his life better at all. All I did was feed him and talk to him. He deserved much better. I believe all animals (like children) deserve loving homes. In a perfect world, right, I know. I am still feeding the others except now I am not seeing them. I know they know he is gone. That is another part of this that is staying with me. They lost a family member and I can never undo that for them. At least now people can read this post and know that a cat who seemingly had no one who cared did have someone who cared, and any unfortunate mistreated animal out there should have at least that.

  • There is another post on here about Everyblock leaving and people trying to keep it going on reddit or facebook. For anyone following my "animal posts" here who wants to find me elsewhere when I post I just signed up for reddit as Helpful24. I am not on facebook.
