Cat Evicted from Post Office Home

January 13 | 4 Comments

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…cats are free loaders.

They don’t protect you, they don’t hunt for you and they certainly don’t love you. If you think otherwise, then you’ve been hitting the catnip a bit too hard.

Humans, however, fall for these lying furballs all the time.

It was bad enough I had to read about Dewey, the freakin cat, that made itself at home in a local library. I can live with that, but I can’t live with the fact he made a $1.5MM advance on his book. Makes the advance I got (three medium sized milkbones), seem small by comparison.

Now I see there’s a copy cat (yeah, pun intended) in Alabama.

WKYC has all the details.

NOTASULA, AL — Residents of the tiny Alabama town of Notasulga are rallying around a local fixture after his eviction from the post office.

“Sammy” the cat was banned from the building after someone wrote in to complain about the cat’s presence.

“They said ‘This is a federal building and he doesn’t pay federal taxes so he can’t come in’,” said postal worker Rochelle Langford.

Before his banishment Sammy spent most of his time lounging in the post office’s window.

Sammy’s supporters think they’ve found a way to move him safely back in.

They’ve rented a P.O. box in his name.

Post office workers say they’ll allow Sammy back in, but will try to keep him out of the way of customers.

Federal officials declined to comment on the rumor that dog drool was found on the letter ‘outing’ Sammy.

Here’s some video goodness showing Sammy in action…

    It just annoys me to no end that we’ve become the country where one intolerant person ruins it for everybody else. When did we become the nation where the need of the one wacko trumps the wishes of the many?

    It must be miserable to be the person who complained about Sammy. They should get a life and focus on trying to change things that are worth and in need of change. I am sure this person is a busy body that has lived an entire life moaning and complaining about any and everything. I would love the oppurtunity to sit and chat with this sad little person.

    I think that the person who complained needs some mental help. Seriously I mean does it make any sense? The poor cat. How would the person feel if they had to live like that? Yeah I know that sammy is a cat and the person is human but if it was up to me that person would have to live the same way as Sammy does rigith now for as long as sammy has so far and until they get him back into a warm and loving enviroment. If they can’t then I hope sammy gets a home that loves him!
