This from Neighbor Laura,
“ I would like to share the following with the island residents.
My dog Lucy has come in contact with rat poison somewhere on the island and I would like to spread the word so other pet owners can be on the alert. Last night I noticed my dogs stool was green like the color of grass. I took my dog to Marina Bay Animal Hospital this morning and the vet confirmed the colored stool is a result of her eating rat poison. Since we do not have any poison around our home, garage or yard I have to assume she picked it up during one of our walks. As I have learned from our vet, symptoms of rat poison do not present themselves right away. It can be days before you might see any signs of trouble with your pet. So seeing a change in the color of your pets stool is an important early warning sign. There are two types of rat poison, one is treatable if caught early the other is not treatable. Unfortunately there is no way of knowing which one my dog ingested because all of the rat poisons use similar dye colors and it’s the dye that’s causes the color change in the stool. We will treat her for the one poison that is treatable and hope for the best.
Please send my message to other residents. And advise people to keep any poison products away from the bushes and grassy areas that line the streets.
An afterthought, With the Coyotes taking out all the cats after dark, makes me wonder if this is a byproduct. I know for the first time since we’ve been here we have a rat problem. They have been eating our veggies from the garden and bird seed from the feeder. And yes I do have D-Con out. It’s working, slowly, but working. Dang Coyotes.
This from Neighbor Dave,
“I wanted to share some concerns I have about the duck population. Since we moved here 5 years ago the duck population has grown exponentially. This is due to the lack of predators and the enormous amount of food they are being given.
As someone who lives on north shore, we live with ducks all the time. The feeding of ducks in our front yard is creating quite a problem. The ducks wait for people to feed them all day. Making a feces mass and a constant traffic jam. The feces we must wash away constantly is not a healthy problem to have.
Can you publish something in your paper asking people to feed the ducks in their own yard and not my yard.
Can I get a hallelujah! MJ and I were making a lap last week, when up on North Shore we passed a lady shoveling out corn on the waterfront side of the grass. Did you get that? Shoveling! For the ducks. Not in her yard though….come on people!!
And while we’re bitching, I’ve been sending out reminders/requests for friends and neighbors to please join or renew their Civic Club membership. You may have seen the email. Got this last night
“I don't know how my email address got into your distribution list, AGAIN. No matter, PLEASE remove my Email address from your Distribution list Along with the club you Head up, and inform the officers of this club of my Repeated request to remove my email address from the distribution list Of this club.
Please do not reply to this email”Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in.
