from Caboodle Ranch [-posted on their FB page 19,713 fans]
Obviously the public was not ‘poisoned’ by the actions of the NFP Animal Rights Extremists organizations that continue with their invasions on Responsible Private Owners…Certainly not this time…I wonder if Craig is considering this a victory with his animals-gone…the use of his property -gone…The time wasted, the pain and mourning for those animals…the scars of all this imprinted on him forever…the nightmares will continue…


Today, the fight in the criminal case ended! Both sides met with Craig at the District Attorney’s office and agreed to put an end to the criminal case! Without being able to say too much, this was a good thing. A wonderful thing! And an answer to thousands of prayers! Nothing will bring the caboodles home again to their home at the ranch, that cannot be undone. However, with that door closed, another has opened.

The DA and the prosecuting attorney did not want his criminal case to go any further, therefore, presented Craig with a “Deferred Prosecution Agreement”. The prosecuting attorney, Dean Morphonios, was extremely kind, articulate and forthcoming and he told Craig he was a good man, wished Craig the best and “to follow his passion”. Craig will take the next 12 months to heal and to plan his future.

This agreement may have ended the criminal trial, but Craig will finish the Appeal in the Civil Suit for principal and personal reasons. We ask that no ill words towards the prosecution be said on this Face Book page. We need to be done with any and all negativity, it just poisons the heart.

Craig mourns the loss of his cats every moment of every day, that will, in time, get better. He has been very sick in mind, body and soul from this travesty. And today has been the first step to real healing. Craig plans on relocating as soon as possible, and indeed ‘follow his passion’.

To say “thank you” would not even come close to what Craig and all of us feel for you, the supporters, the friends, the cat lovers. An intense appreciation of your never ending, relentless support, love and encouragement is what has enabled Craig and all of us to get through this nightmare.

Craig continues to need your support. His lawyer David Collins was so moved at the meeting, that he ‘forgave’ the remainder of the legal bill ! He said, “use whatever you get for saving cats”. Craig will be able to save cats but not in Madison County since they have the ordinance of only 30 cats allowed. So when he relocates, his dream will continue.

Craig and the ranch team and supporters were blessed today, and we ask that you pray for every single cat that was at the ranch, including the 2 great pyrenese, that they recieve love, kindness and a forever home wherever they are.

NOTE: We hope that the ones responsible for all that has happened will someday realize that they were the ones that took so many lives of so many cats that were happy without their interference and “righteous” opinions. They have blood on their hands, evil in their souls and ugliness in their hearts. 

Disclaimer connected to this blog…Things said are of my opinion and the opinion of others…Stay tuned  Best -B

animal seizures and rescues are being conducted by a very sophisticated

network of 

organized crime who have developed a very sophisticated scheme by which

they are 

criminalizing longstanding animal and livestock owners; divesting them of

ownership of entire herds of livestock and commercially valuable animals.

all of it done at taxpayer expense and thru a highly developed scheme to

collect donations.

follow the animals ~ follow the money!!!

One Response to “A QUIET VICTORY”

  1. From Craig:
    “Thank you all for everything; your support, your cards and letters, your time, your prayers, your thoughts and wishes and your encouragement. You saved me just as the love of a cat saves me….
