Got a knock on the door today. It was Animal Control. The officer said they received an anonymous phone complaint that we had "a LOT of animals". i told her we have four indoor cats, then outside chickens and 3 Nigerian Dwarf Goats. i told her we did a lot of research before moving here, and according to Code Enforcement, and with our acreage, we were allowed to have all the poultry (ducks, turkeys, etc) we wanted, and any farm animal that does not exceed 75 pounds at adult weight. i told her our dwarf goats aren't over 30 pounds each. She asked if she could take a look and i said "fine". Took her in back, apologized that it was a bit messy. She said she only needed to make sure our animals had food, water, and adequate shelter. She looked at all the animals and said everything looked fine. She mentioned she had farm animals and we got to chatting. After a short while, i could see she was a good person, animal lover, had taken in rescue chickens and other animals. At the end, she assured me she would close this out with a finding of "charges unfounded". i feel good that we passed muster. But now wondering which neighbor turned us in. i suspect our next door neighbor with whom we have had issues was the culprit. What a weenie! But VERY glad we had all our ducks in a row (so to speak) before we bought this house. Nice to know we are safe from weenies with issues.
