I'm the same, it's really bad in the neighborhood I've moved too, I swear I think the woman up the street is an animal hoarder. I never see the same dogs twice in her yard, and I always hear a bunch of barking on the inside. And the house two streets over is always crawling with cats
Don't worry Cympreni, I've raised kittens before (my mother was afflicted with the hobo mark as well), I only do it because my humane society's resources are already stretched thin and are understaffed, especially with kitten season well underway. I can't actually foster, being a rental property, so I usually get the kitties on solid food and litterbox trained before passing them on. I passed on a brother and sister a couple weeks ago.
@Ninja, I found a beagle a few months ago dead of winter, huddling under my car on my way to work. He too was given to the humane society full of beef and gravy and smelling faintly of coconut. I think I definitely got the hobo mark
