Do you have feral (also called community) cats in your neighborhood? I know we do. There are feral cat colonies all over the world. Some areas embrace these cats and truly treat them as “community” cats. In other places, they are hunted down and taken to shelters where they are killed because they are not socialized to people and are therefore unadoptable.
This outdated method of managing feral colonies is cruel and it doesn’t work. Cats live in an area where there is a food source and shelter. When cats are removed from an area, others just move in.
As an ADVO-Cat for homeless kitties, I promote and support three main issues: feral cat trap-neuter-return; adopt, don’t shop; and spay/neuter. Tomorrow is National Feral Cat Day so I’ll be meowing about feral cats tomorrow. Adopt, don’t shop is a topic for the future. Today, I want to meow about spay/neuter.

In my humble kitty opinion, spaying and neutering your pets, and spreading the word of it’s importance, is the best way YOU can be the change for animals. Having all companion dogs and cats spayed or neutered is the only way to begin to end the killing in shelters of unwanted pets.

The only thing we could say when we saw the photos was, holy cat! Would you look at … Continue reading
