So true &Dustin4ever I first saw a donation jar in a shop, and then inquired further into their program. It's a peaceful feeling to see four or five sunning on a deck, like they were this day, and to look like they're being fed. It's such a sadness to see cats worn from fights, and searching for food. They say, they don't fight as much either.

In my own community, there has been an ongoing stray population, much of it because people are not responsibe for their own cats, to have them spayed or neutered. There's been a few too, feral, the offspring that somehow survived. I saw a little black kitten recently, and asked my husband to look for him. He ran wild, and starved looking. I mention the little kitten, because I dreamed of him last night ...

How cool is this. I saw a documentary on tv awhile back but I cannot remember where it was, Canada I think. They were doing the same. I wish more people would realize the need for this. It would not be difficult if others would join in to help the animals. It is all about doing the right thing.

I too am an advocate of these programs, and I think the only places where people should be able to adopt pets are shelters and rescue groups.

I am happy to hear that in this community humans and cats go together in harmony. It should be nice if more communities do the same.

&Champagne I love this program too, and though our local animal shelter has became a no-kill shelter (longer refuge for the healthy, and social animals) it does not address the stray/feral cat population in every neighborhood. If more people would be responsible for their own cats, it would make a big difference too. I've seen it too many times by neighbors, cats that were adopted from shelters, left out to be strays. At least if they have been in the system, they have been fixed to not have more kittens to suffer. It's so sad when a mother cat is trying to hide her kittens somewhere to protect them, and something horrific happens to them, or to her, and they're left to starve.

&lostinspace More communities could do this, if they only would. Though it was a community undertaking, it was put in motion by a couple that came there to live, and became sadly aware of the cat overpopulation. It is actually set up at their small motel, for the cats to recover after being spayed/neutered, then returned to the area where they were trapped at.

I love the catch/spay/release programs. It is such a more practical and humane way to address problems of this nature. That is a lot of cats. But every community should have this program, and if volunteers would step up, many lives can be saved.

A sudden increase in their population will create problems. Good job!

For once people have found a way to live in harmony with animal. There's so many sad
animal tales out there; this is nice. :)
