I try to do that too -- although I am surrounded by Amish farms who do not 
neuter their animals, and I have so many strays coming here - mostly for food. 
I do neuter as many as I can after they have been here for a while.

Re:  spay/neuter, First I give them 2 weeks for an owner to show up and then it 
is off to the vet for an exam and spay/neuter.  I do not want to be a 
contributor to unwanted kittens/puppies plus they will live longer healthier 
lives.

Transmission of FeLV takes prolonged contact between cats; sharing food, water 
and litterboxes, and often mutual grooming. It is NOT transmitted other than by 
physical contact. 

Easiest way for me to differentiate between that and FIV transmission;

"FeLV is a disease of friends, FIV is a disease of enemies"

FelV spreads thru close friendly contact

FIV spreads by deep bite wounds (or sexual contact, but all our animals are 
altered...right?)
