Supports control of feral cats through spay and neuter programs
To the Editor,
My friend and I took on the job of caring for numerous feral cats in Tecumseh around 2006. We saw a need and we worked daily to put TNR into practice after we read many articles on how to do this.
We did not go looking for cats. They came across our paths and needed assistance. We undertook this for our community, to make it a better place for ALL. We have spent thousands of dollars to spay, neuter, vaccinate, house and feed daily these beautiful cats. It has all been money well spent. Some are true ferals and some are strays that have been abandoned by their humans. They cannot provide their own birth control.
It is up to us as humans on this earth to step up to the plate. STOP complaining and do something constructive to HELP THEM. Feral cat colonies do not live miserable lives if fed daily and watched over by their care takers. The cats are thriving and healthy.
To not feed a feral colony is cruel and inhumane and not a way to control the population. SPAY and NEUTER CONTROLS THE POPULATION! FEEDING THEM fulfills their basic right to eat. There is room for ALL on this earth, cats included!
If you support humane treatment of cats in Tecumseh and would like to help, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
