Does this happen with all species? I think the best thing to do is leave animals alone, too, but when feral cats bother people to the point where they are going to kill them, it's probably better to try to get numbers down. I prefer the methods some used with wolves, doing tubal

Most of the hunting accidents around here are city people coming out with only the weekend to hunt and they get desperate to get a kill. The guys around (all farmers) know the drill and don't go out without their orange on and have been handling guns all their lives so there are not too many

It might not hurt to wait a short time to be sure and most definitly I would alert prospective adopters what to look for. If they find a thinking vet they should not have too much of a problem. They just need to know euthansia is NOT the only answer. My positive girls and healthy, happy and

Yes, it would make sense – if cats had not been domesticated so long ago, they would still be part of the natural ecosystem, be considered wildlife and probably still reproduce only once, instead of numerous times throughout the year, as they do now. It does happen to most wildlife, but

Thanks for what you do Natalie. I've been rescuing cats for about 40 years now and have 14 N/S rescued cats at home and more in a building I bought in 2004 and made into a cageless sanctuary for abused, abandoned cats. I also TNR, but as you said, I don't see much change in the number of kittens

Do the vets volunteer their services? Who covers the costs of the meds, etc. We have a no kill shelter in our area, but they are having financial problems like everyone else and they have to chrge $150.00 for each adoption to cover their expenses. Do vaccine companies ever donate to

And the question is WHY? I have a feeling a lot of it isn't JUST plain ignorance (although I hate to admit, many are just that!), it may be the cost of spaying/neutering - prices on the Easdt Coast can be up to $400 for a female cat! Yes, there are low-cost certificates available, but how many

Yes, definitely some people should have been spayed/neutered! The least requirement would be some kind of a course on child-rearing and responsible parenting. I wouldn’t adopt to just anyone – therefore, why should morons have babies and abuse or ignore them? From: Felvtalk

My vet gives discounts to senior citizen, multiple pet households, and of course, rescue groups. If all of us would talk to our vets who do NOT participate in some kind of a program, maybe we could expand the spay/neuter pool and make it more accessible for many more pet owners. From:
