You know, I do rescue too, but I seriously doubt attacking this man for breeding cats is going to help this female FELV+ bengal. I doubt he's on this list anymore (I would not be) and I'm not sure how this is helping the cat, and isn't she what is important here? Couldn't someone have steered him to some resources that would have helped the cat instead of attacking him?
