Verbatim Transcription from text messages between myself and a tenant who lives in a house on the property.
Tenant - It didn't survive the winter... I found it this morning under your dryer vent. I already buried it though. Don't want raccoons around.
Me - Well now i feel terrible, thanks for burying the cat.
Tenant - Don't feel terrible... Strays always have a tough time this season. At least we we know it was warm :)
I still feel bad about the cat because I had seen it before but I thought if it made it through the previous week, which was at or below zero, then it would be fine. This was an incorrect assumption, as the text above denotes. Be advised this was a stray cat and in no way demonstrates inhuman treatment of animals at Trees Company, it is more of a purging of guilt for not taking the stray to the humane society.
