We could do with less cats - through Sterilisation

Good letter. It also points out something that is very true. I would say the vast majority of vets enter the profession because they love animals. No one would like to euthanise them especially if they have an alternative. They found for example that shelters that had a policy of killing animals had a much higher turn over rate of employees than those that didn't. There was a very interesting article in Alley Cat Allies newsletter about this a while ago and found that most people either made it to the two year mark and stayed or quit before that so two years seemed to be what most people could take before they either left, or adapted. Many people reported feelings of guilt.

scrap the death row at SPCA. Public must be reminded not to simply give up their pets without going through counselling.
