Cats who are abandoned to live outside have a hard life. They must hunt for prey, avoid cars and predators, find shelter from the cold and be subjected to countless parasites and diseases. They reproduce at an alarming rate. Some people think that trapping and killing homeless cats is the answer. If its human ignorance that has put these domestic felines in a homeless situation, why should the animals suffer or be killed?
The Community Cat Program is being launched to educate City Council, and City staff, as well as the community, on the benefits of providing a safe habitat for the cats who are left to fend for themselves and live outside. Spay and neuter are key benchmarks to the Community Cat Program, as well as education and owner responsibility. Trapping cats and killing them with our tax dollars is archaic.
