second request to remove dead animal
The kitten was not pick up, left to disintegrate.
Icy, you were advised that the kitten would likely not be picked up for a very long time, 3 months ago. You can still put it in a clean garbage bag and take it to the impound. That is what should have been done 3 months ago. Now you will probably need to use a shovel or some other tool. But the respectful thing to do about a dead animal is what I told you 3 months ago.
I did not see the email for a citizen to do the city job
It was a comment, not an email. There are a lot of "city" jobs that the City of Oakland does not do, if you look around, and I posted 3 months ago that the city would likely not get to this within a reasonable time, and gave you alternatives. If you actually want something done, and the problem is something that you can resolve yourself, that is the best, fastest, most sure way of getting it done. Notice that the mayor was on the East Cost and then in Paris, while this city's problems are not solvable in either place. The City Council is likewise obsessed with getting their hands on city money - for example, Larry Reid's friends, who recently got $11 million in City funds that they do not have to pay back; they don't even have a track record as successful developers, and the funds will be long gone by the time anyone figures out that they have failed to perform - the City Council has solved few if any serious problems in recent memory. So don't expect the city to pick up a dead animal or do much of anything else that you can do yourself.
Dead animal. There is a vacant lot with a fence around it between the house ( 892 Isabella st) and the True Vine church. There is a little grey kitty with a pink collar laying there.

This'll be very disappointing to you, but if it's private property (sounds like it is), a fee must be paid to Animal Services
(1101-29th Ave.) before a dead animal will be picked up [within a week of the $62. payment]. And could anyone gain entry to the lot to remove the dead animal?
Is there any info. on the fence to identify the property owner? Would the church or the house next to the vacant lot know who the owner is?
Code Enforcement (238-3381) deals with blighted property, BUT NOT DEAD ANIMALS apparently.
This is a sorry predicament...
