To the Editor,

I have been helping feral cats for eight years. I and feral friends TNR (trap-neuter-return) and provide food and shelter to our feral colonies. This is truly a labor of love, the best therapy my soul has ever had. The colonies sit and wait in anticipation of our daily arrival. They so appreciate all that is done on their behalf. I would like to ask all that are concerned about the cat situation in our community to educate yourselves. Alley Cat Allies.org and PETA.org both offer a wealth of information on feral cats.

Feral cats seek the same comforts as us humans and our house pets. Food and Shelter. Feral cats have lived alongside of humans for 10,000 years. The difference between a feral cat and our housecats: a feral cat has never been touched by humans, thus they are fearful. I am living proof that the saying, “Once feral always feral,” is not true. “Once feral and thus proceed with caution,” is my belief. I and others can pet and apply medications if necessary to many of the cats in our colonies.

To [those]voicing cruel solutions, I quote: “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” — Gandhi (1869-1948). All who care, please support us at sbersuder@comcast.net.
