I haven't read all the literature or watched the videos about his place but I 
was under the impression that it is set up to be a sanctuary not a rescue or 
shelter type situation.  Most of his cats weren't pets but homeless cats that 
were living on the streets anyway.  So his place is probably better than living 
on the street.  Probably also has ferals that were at a pound ready to be 
executed because they're not adoptable.  He also takes in ferals that can no 
longer live at the colony location.

I thought about this too, but he might not let me bring them in the house 
because I felt guilty leaving them outside.
