Dog owner stuck with litter of unwanted cats

I had to laugh when I saw the letter from Robert Smiley May 2. I have been saying the same thing for years regarding cats.

Now I have the situation of one stray cat that has deposited her litter of kittens in a bush in my back yard. I called Animal Control and was told that the situation was now my responsibility. I was told to purchase a trap, as they didn't have any to rent out, to trap the mother and to gather up the kittens and then call them for pick-up. Why do I have to do the job of Animal Control?

Did I mention I have a dog that hates cats? You can imagine the barking my dog is doing. Next I'll have the police at my door with a ticket for the noise.
