Update on Kittengate – we called the Hopedale PD, and they have confirmed that the investigation is ongoing. They also confirmed when we asked that the one missing kitten is NOT with Jahna Walsh. When they arrived at her house after all hell broke loose on the Odd Cats Sanctuary Facebook page, two of the kittens ran out the door when they opened it. They found one, and they’re looking for the other. So no, unlike what these mob-inciting idiots posted at 2 AM last night, Jahna Walsh does NOT have the last kitten. We do not know why Jahna was at home with the cats, when this was not what she signed up to do. There could be a number of reasons, and since we are responsible adults we will wait until the police investigate before jumping to conclusions.

This is in direct contrast to what the Odd Cat Sanctuary posted on Facebook last night. According to them, “Jahna still has one of our cats”:

Except she didn’t. There was no hostage situation. Obviously. We are dealing with pathological LIARS here.

We also have been told that the cops are indeed investigating Jahna Walsh. For what we do not know. She was told to bring the cats to Lynnfield and she didn’t do that. We have people messaging us who know her and are telling us that her phone died, so she stopped at home to charge it. And rather than leave the cats in the car, she brought them inside. Once she got power back on her phone she found out an online mob had descended on every aspect of her life. So she started blocking people, and deactivated social media. Once again, this is their side of the story. Hearing both sides of a story are important. So is letting the cops do their job.

When we called the cops we told them that the Odd Cats Sanctuary page was still inciting vigilante justice against a woman who was not arrested for anything. Check out some of these lonely gravy dumpsters:

“She’s a sick fuck who should be skinned herself.” 

And quite frankly from the looks of her, Sidnie Jean looks like the kid of cheesehog who’s skinned a bitch or two in her lifetime:

Just sayin.

Hopedal PD also told us that they thought she updated the page, which they did – 8 hours after the Hopedale PD had resolved the situation. However, we informed them that the original post, which had been shared over 10,000 times, was still getting hundreds of comments every hour. They were shocked, and shortly after we called them the post was taken down. Obviously they called these idiots and told them to cut the shit.

Not according to Internet lawyer Victoria Lynne though.

According to her the police MADE them keep it up because a team of lawyers and detectives was reviewing the thousands and thousands of comments that were left on the post:

These people are the stupidest bitches on earth, but they really, truly believe they know what they’re talking about. It’s fascinating to watch.

Oh yea, and the cover up continues on the part of the non-profit’s only board member – Tara Kawczynski. Let’s look at the edit history from last night’s update. Here’s her original post:

“Sorry for the delay, I just got out of work.”

Well we revealed that Tara works in telecommunications, which is not a job that would keep her at work until 2 AM on a Friday. So after we exposed her LinkedIn page:

She changed the post:

“Sorry for the delay, busy dealing with all of this.”

So she was never at work. She lied. Tara is a liar. Tara is a manipulator. Tara is a cat lady in her late 30’s, leading a mob of pscyho cat ladies who keep throwing money in her three open GoFundMe’s:

This is not a caricature:

This is how an actual human being chooses to present herself to the world. She seems normal. If you closed your eyes and asked yourself, what does the average triggered SJW crazy cat lady look like? You’d see that face.

These people continue to donate despite the fact that this nonprofit’s income last year was $77,783:

That’s after costs. Some have suggested that it doesn’t prove that she gets all that. But yet according to the Secretary of State’s website, she is the President, Treasurer, Secretary, and Vice President:

Ya got that? She’s the only one on the payroll. So who else is that $77K going to? Oh yea, no one. As the treasurer she controls all funds. She cuts corners by finding people who will work for free. She doesn’t vet them at all, which is why she let Jahna Walsh take a littler of kittens, despite having no idea who she was. She doesn’t care so long as the labor is free.

Now that all these facts have been presented about her money making nonprofit scheme, Tara has begun the process of banning anyone who points it out or asks ANY questions. Then came the “Turtleboy isn’t real news” patrol:

Doug Bellows. Defending the great wall of Turtle like you read about. My man.

He’s right too. Solely because of our blog we got a buttload of people arrested this week, including a grown man upskirting 9 year old girls in Yarmouth. But please, tell me more about how we are not a “fact based news source” Barbara. Because it appears as if we were the only ones waiting for actual facts to become public. It’s why we were voted Worcester’s Top News Outlet by the people of Worcester County.

And for the record, we weren’t defending Jahna Walsh. We were defending the basic fundamental right of due process under the law. We were combatting vigilante justice and death threats of someone who might be completely innocent. And we were fighting self important crazy cat ladies who were tying up the phone lines for the HPD and MSP. Turtleboy continues to be the voice of reason in a sea of madness. 

The bottom line is either this woman did something nefarious or it was a misunderstanding. If she was planning on doing something shady then she’s one of the dumbest criminals we’ve ever encountered, since she gave them her real name and contact information. If the story is true that she went home to charge her dead phone battery, and as a result her legitimate business was harmed irreparably, her parents and boyfriend were harassed, her life was threatened, and her employer was attacked for something that had nothing to do with them. And I’m pretty sure that’s actual grounds for a deformation lawsuit. Paging Attorney Dick N. Vulva.

    Thank you for your article. I am hoping that her phone did die, and that it will all be worked out. I have done transports before, and the communication piece with the other drivers is very important. My questions at this point are: if her phone died, then couldn’t she borrow someone’s phone to call the lead on the transport ?; why doesn’t she have a car charger for her phone?
    Either way, thank you for your article.

      My Fiancé adopted a cat from the odd cat and everything was ok until day 4, we came home and she was worried the cat wasn’t eating. Immediately got nervous and called Tara to ask for advice, in which Tara tild her she needed to get to a vet, my fiancé said we would not be able to bring her until the next evening cause it was late Sunday night and we both had to work the next day. So one of her free workers who had fostered the cat volunteered to come pick up the cat so she could bring it to the vet the next morning and they would keep us informed. The woman came to pickup the cat which we had in our cat carrier and assured us we would be kept in the loop as to her health. The next day while my fiancé was at work, where she takes care of horses for a living and has a BS in equestrian management, and once slept in a stall with a horse cause it was sick and was worried it might need her in the night… just sayin that to explain the next part. So Tara and other crazy cat lady decides to ignore my fiancé all day except for a text saying “I’ll let you know when I get out of work at 8pm” .. how the cat was doing. So at 845pm that night my fiancé calls Tara in which she says “I’m gonna text you” and hangs up the phone. So while my fiancé is getting texts from her basically claiming her to be unfit to take care of a cat, even tho we have a cat already that has his own friggen IG page and loves life! So I decide to call to try explaining about how much my fiancé is so incredibly caring for animals that she once brought her pet rat to an emergency vet clinic at 2 am cause she thought was sick, and that she is very worried about this poor old cat that was sick. In which I stated in a very calm none threatening demeanor, Tara tells me “I’m feeding a sick cat and need to go, I’ll call back in 5min” them hangs up. She continues texting back saying again how uncomfortable she was with the cat staying with us and in a very passive aggressive way, except this time she also added “I wish your boyfriend wasn’t so rude to me” LOL which once again I was very polite because I was trying very hard to get the cat back which my fiancé had already fallen in love with and it was the 7 year anniversary to my best friends death on that day.. I know slightly dif scale but it was already a sad day and this just added to it.. all because Tara is a absolute psychopath with zero reasoning ability! Oh and then blocked us both when she asked for our cat carrier back! ‍♂️

        Just to add more information…I was told Tara’s job was she was a vet and that she would administer fluids to our cat the next day. As “a vet” she never told us the situation was an emergency, which later became her argument for why she wanted to take the cat from us. She claimed we were “holding off” on taking her to a vet. This was false. If we felt our situation was an emergency or if she said it was, we would have taken her to an emergency clinic.
        In the end, after a day of worrying about my cat, hours of crying because they took my cat from me, Tara told me she had “no intention of taking her away” and she “just wanted to hear what [I] had to say.” And then kept my cat regardless. Malicious much?
        This was over a month ago and I still lose sleep over it and still want my cat back.

    As a member of Turtleboy Nation I am highly offended that these cunts call all of us “misogynists”. Rather than expressing their opinons on Facebook they should be washing dishes, doing laundry and cleaning their homes.

    I demand an apology.

    You’re missing one important point: Jahna Walsh had a side business making “art” out of animal taxidermy and skeletons. She has since taken down her Instagram, but at the time of the post, there were pictures of her pieces with raccoon heads, birds, squirrels, and all sorts of reptiles…and evidence of a former Etsy site that was selling a preserved cat head in a jar. So you should be able to understand why people jumped to those conclusions. Why didn’t you include that in your “investigation”?

    • ShutUpSitDown
      August 6, 2017 at 1:27 pm

      The fact that she had a side business of making “art” out of cat heads in jars was conveniently glossed over by the writer. Oh, it was addressed though, by dismissively attributing it a link to some obscure French website that seemed sketchy to the writer. Other posters easily found elsewhere the petition to ban her questionable store from etsy, which was a big part of the frenzy of this whole situation. Seems that the French website was attributing their post to that. If this blog wants to keep true to its mission of reporting all the facts, then by all means do so and don’t omit the ones that are pertinent to the story, especially a relevant one that would explain the root of the uproar. Of course it made it that much more sensational to attribute everyone’s distress to the accused being a “taxidermist.”

      If you are going to feature pictures of the supporters of the rescue in an unflattering light, by all means please run a follow up article featuring the worst possible ones you can find of the alleged catnapper and her defenders as well, so we can all jump to our own conclusions. Also feature as many ad hominem descriptions of them as possible. It seemed disheartening for your site to find that the founder of this rescue was not some shut-in, homely churchmouse, but an attractive, outgoing, and smart blonde lady. This site is quick to point out those who do not work and live off of benefits, but you seem to relish that she, gasp, does bartending work. Because I’m pretty sure most of your readership never drinks or goes to out to bars and would never be seen in one. Also featured was some snarky asides for one of the rescue’s supporters who made a comment on the situation– a picture of a pretty, smiling woman with a nice-looking man. According to this site, she looked like the epitome of a stalky, clingy girlfriend (or implications to that effect.) Because “crazy cat ladies” could never possibly be pretty or have nice-looking men interested in them.

      Sorry, but you dropped the ball on this. You’re not doing any favors to your credibility by downplaying the cat-head-in-the jar aspect. A lot of your readers may not be be crazy or female or cat lovers, but many are pet (of all types) owners who cherish their animals, and are skeeved by it. I thought I was reading a headline from the Daily Mail, except they would have mentioned the whole cat head/jar concept. And even they would be creeped out by it.

    Was she the one who worked for Zoo Creatures? They’ve got pretty bad online reviews dating back some time…about snakes and such being kept in tiny confines and filthy conditions and rare exotic pets that they shouldn’t have. Many of the animals they sell…looks like her “art”.

    • Somewhat Sane Cat Lady
      August 5, 2017 at 6:08 pm

      Snakes prefer “tiny confines.” And Zoo Creatures doesn’t keep anything they aren’t licensed for.

      For Gods sake has it ever occurred to anyone that just because someone has an interest in taxidermy doesn’t mean they don’t respect living creatures? It’s not like they’re buying them to kill them for art, that’s a waste of money. And it’s pointless to steal them, as that usually leads to police involvement. Most of the taxidermy artists I’ve seen have connections with animal breeders, or they collect roadkill, or other humane means. Whether you’re interested in it or not, it’s not difficult to use common sense to figure this out.

      • Kitkat
        August 5, 2017 at 7:29 pm

        Wonder what kind of art the emaciated dog she posted on her online profile fits into?

      • Not a cat lady.
        August 5, 2017 at 9:18 pm

        This article isn’t about the taxidermists you’ve seen, is it? This woman had jars of kittens on her Etsy page. I think it’s quite rational for people to be a bit panicky when she failed to meet up to drop off the cats. People scam for animals ALL THE TIME on Craigslist and other platforms, and they do so for nefarious purposes. Realizing the woman sells dead kittens in jars after she fails to drop a mom cat and her kittens off is good cause for alarm. The dead phone crap is just an excuse now that this has blown up. Remember when people met their obligations long before cell phones were invented? That’s common sense. Call cat people out for being insane, I think we can all get that, but don’t sit there and act like there was nothing for people to be concerned about. That’s incredibly naive.

      Yes, and the women who are calling for a lynch mob, the ones who want to hang Jahna and skin her, they’re being reasonable? No one is defending her. Normal people want to know what happened before attacking someone who might be innocent. That’s kind of how the justice system in this country works. You know, that whole “innocent until proven guilty thing?” Where’s the proof of guilt? So far you have a bunch of women going ape on the word of a few people who don’t know the whole story, as it’s still being investigated.

        Turtleboy where did you say your journalism degree was from? Oh …that’s right..you do not have one. So clearly you believed you are correctly putting the facts out there ..but now that Jahna’s motive has been called into question, you want to wait until all the facts are in. Well Jahna is being charged. I think that says it all. Stop pedaling trash and calling it news. What a dumbass you are and you demostrate it every day with these hokey stories you posts! You better hope you don’t end up with a lawsuit about the trash you spread. If it were me, I would make sure your site was shut down and you never worked in journalism again.
