Re: “The truth about the Goathouse Refuge

I know Siglinda, have visited Goathouse Refuge, and donated when I could. She is a remarkable person who has dedicated her life to the cats and I think this Indy article is skewed journalism. A place the size of Goathouse requires a lot of time and work from employees and volunteers every day and it is virtually impossible to fully screen every cat that comes in as some can harbor an illness without showing it. It is my understanding that cats that come in are quarantined for several weeks before being introduced to the others. Frankly, I know Siglinda does not take in every cat as I recently trapped a cat that had been turned out by its owner and was hungry and roaming the neighborhood and Siglinda refused to take him even when I offered a sizable donation. She said "I have too many cats right now and just cannot take another one" and she did refer me to another person in the area that is taking in feral cats. This article has to be devastating to Siglinda and her cause....the Indy should do a follow-up story allowing Siglinda and her current volunteers a rebuttal.
