crazy lady trying to weasel cats in to the pool

I work as a leasing consultant for an apartment community. We have this crazy lady who is always carrying her cat around with her wherever she goes. She has been cranky the entire summer because she has been trying to bring her cat with her in to the pool so she can swim with it. Under NJ state law you cannot bring any animal with you to the pool unless it is a service animal (seeing eye dog) and even then you cannot swim with it.

So..............this is what crazy lady does. She has this pychiatrist she sees write her a letter saying that her cat is a "utility" animal and should accompany her at all times. Couldn't believe it, it was on stationary and everyting. So we called up this "doctor" and asked him to explain to her that in fact she could not bring the cat with her due to state regulations, guy says "Uh..........couldn't you speak to her about it?" we're like idiot what do you think we've been doing. Now crazy lady is talking about bringing in a lawyer because of the way we are "discriminating" against her.


I CAN'T WAIT FOR LABOR DAY!

Let her bring in her cat and then bring in a "seeing eye dog". Preferably a doberman.

Well at least she's performing a vital role in the community. Every community needs a crazy cat lady.

Maybe you'll get lucky and they'll both drown.

I hope the cat claws her when it realizes it's about to go for a swim.

Sounds like it's true what they say about why people go into psychiatry

That may be the most bizarre, nonsensical thread title of all time.

Oh when I first read the title I thought the lady was trying to cat weasels into the pool so I didn;t see the problem but now I realise she wants to take her cat for a swim. I say let her cause that cat is going to fuck her up once she gets into the pool.

I don't see the big deal. We used to bring our dog intot he pool all the time with no problems. Frankly I'd be more worried about little bastard kids who shit and piss in the pool when they're sick. Some parents will still allow their kids in the pool even when they know the kids is sick and that's just wrong. Does anyone remember when all thos ekids got sick at a wading pool when one kid had the shits a few years back? I think one kid even died.


But I guess if it's law then she has to be nailed for it.

She has the letter, so let her bring the cat to the pool. If she wants to swim with it, just tell her that no animal, even a seeing eye dog, can enter the actual pool herself.

That way, any suit she might bring will be thrown out as you've accomodated her not only to the letter of the law, but the spirit of it too.

This cat lady discrimination must stop. I hope your legal team is prepared because we are ready for a fight.
