FILTHY! Rude! Racist!

When I walked through the door I smelled something rancid. It made me very uncomfortable. The owners were also very sloppily dressed. Their clothes were soiled. I tried to ignore it but the owners are black and I am white. They treated me as if I should not be there. It was very obvious they do not like white people. I will never go back. What was supposed to be a relaxing experience turned into a hostile experience. There are many other nice, CLEAN places in the are who will treat you with respect. This is not one of them. Please heed my warning!

Vile excuse for a business that's supposed to be providing "therapeutic" services but, instead is self-serving, inhumane and callous. Brutally trapped and killed a group of feral cats in their neighborhood, without ever seeking alternatives. In addition, they tried to get an elderly neighbor who was feeding the cats arrested and then BRAGGED about the killings and arrest on their Facebook page. ("We are so excited to report we are free of cats...All the culprits have been captured...The authorities are waiting for our neighbor...Feeding cats is illegal.") Their explanation? The cats "might have disease". NO evidence to suggest ANY of the cats had any kind of disease. Even posted pics of the captured cats & a copy of the complaint they'd filed against their neighbor on their business page. They were SO PROUD of themselves! Following a flood of negative feedback from the community, they removed their photos & boasts. Then started back peddling & blaming the local Humane Society (see attached pics for the Humane Society's response). When that excuse FAILED, they started calling the animal advocates a "hate group" & blamed the backlash on "racism". *eye roll* Such blatant disregard for life is appalling. Anyone who has this kind of mindset is a disgrace to the "therapeutic" field.

Her feeding the cats has nothing to do with multiplying. This could be avoided by TNR.

Feeding them car for keeps down the deases they would get from eating mice,birds of snacks. These cats never asked to be born and is surviving the best way they can. I hope your business has to close for what you have don't to these cats and the little old lady who fed them.

I hope cats are in your dreams running all around you and you wake up sweating and unable to get go back to sleep. I hope this happens everytime you close your eyes.


Hopefully these people will suffer the same fate they inflicted on these poor animals. That is my intense desire.

I would dance with glee upon learning that they died in a fire.

But theres no karma and no god and the evil are inheriting the earth. One day tho there will be vengeance for these crimes.


It's very telling that Monroe made a post thanking the animal advocates for boosting their business but, also continued to whine that they were being falsely accused and "defamed".


The images posted were taken directly from the Monroe Therapeutic Massage Facebook page. Any "business" (much less one that pretends to be "therapeutic") that would post these kinds of things to their professional page and think that this would cast them in a positive light has some very serious ethics issues.

Following negative community backlash, they deleted the pictures from their page but, no worries.

They can't erase the screen shots others had already taken. Read and decide for yourself if this is the kind of place you'd like to visit for some "therapeutic" services.


Lies lies lies defamation.


In my neighborhood we have 3 registered feral cat communties.It is a very harsh crime to hurt them and you would be ticketed and arrested.They are all fixed and all have their shots.Volenteers feed them and take care of them.What this heartless man has done appalls me.I hope all his customers see this and are just as appalled.I hope his business ends up being shut down.I also hope he gets criminally charged for his actions.Not a very spiritual place when you murder the most spiritual animals created.


Cruelty to animals is just that cruelty, their is no race card to be played here, these people did what they did and the community reacted accordingly. Their disgraceful act would be just as disgraceful no matter the color of their skin.

I am totally horrified that the people who own Monroe therapeutic massage so heartlessly trapped innocent animals and then the ones they did trap were given over to be euthanized and who were not bothering anyone.This Feral colony's of cats had been being taken care of by people who actually have compassion and empathy for animals and they should not be made to seem like the bad guy.If this business wanted to help,they could have taken up a donation to have the cats trapped neutered and released back to the area they were living,they could have taken pictures of the cats and posted them so people could have adopted them.Feral cats when taken in to loving homes make awesome pets,they are thankful for warmth,food and love .,I know because I took in a feral cats an old beat up boy and he was the best cat ever.And if they think by removing the cats that were there will take care of what they deemed a problem it won't and it's a fact other feral cats will just repopulate the area.This crazy lady who in essence fated these cats to a certain death. :cry .She could have done so many things different but in fact she was just thinking about herself and making money and couldn't be bothered to see that by helping these cats she would have been helping her business.On the bigger scale of things there are more animal lovers than haters,and just because she has a cat,which I'd hate to be her cat doesn't excuse her pathetic excuses for why she had the cats removed and killed,she stated the cats were pooing all over ,well cats are private pooers,no cats gona go take a poo in the middle of someone's lawn,they will go find dirt and bury it and as far as her comment about garbage being around from the awesome people who were feeding the cats,I highly doubt that was that case,I'd more than bet it's trash being blown around from people who littler driving down a road,kids walking what not,I think if the race card was played by anyone it was by Monroe and directed towards the people feeding it,maybe they were not dressed in their Sunday best to go out early in the morning to feed the cats and she felt like it was bad for her image to have people like that seen near her dump.Cats keep rats and nice population under control,how much ya wana bet she becomes overran with them in no time at all!. I can not wait for her business to fail,karma baby karma :roll

Why do you keep referring to her the lady who fed the cats did not do anything to encourage the deaths of those cats. The massage therapy company is the responsible party that trapped and killed those cats.

It is an awful thing for any human to do to innocent animals who haven't done anything but try to survive. You will all answer to God for destroying his creation.
