Not to that extreme.
Poe was a stray and was a neiborhood cat. Everyone took care of her, until she decided to live with my dad. I took her a few months to deal with a mouse problem. I was going to steal her back once I moved. The whole neighborhood loved her. She would greet the neighbors with a rub to the leg. My dad lives in a neighbor that are full of animal lovers. They all know what happened to Poe, and have shunned him for his act.
