I wouldn't give those people anything but a view of my backside as I walked 
out.  There are low cost spay/neuter clinics all around...but sometimes you 
have to really search them out.  I found a local organization that just does 
the surgery...they will test if I request it, but I don't.  PETA doesn't want 
feral cats, but they don't think we should have them as "prisoners" in our 
homes....go figure.

I am so sorry about your little ones, Sharyl....I understand your pain and 
guilt.  BTW, they shouldn't have kept your money since I am sure they did the 
"test" prior to surgery!
