Neighbourhood cat


Kitten at provision shop
Originally uploaded by dawnkua.

I saw this kitten yesterday as I was walking past a provision shop. I spoke to the shop owner and they said it was really a community cat in that the whole community looked after it - the owner let it sleep on the premises, lots of people fed it, and another resident had it sterilised three weeks ago. The kitten had a red collar on too.

Another fine example of the community service performed by community cats ===> bond the people! It is time the Nation recognises the value of cats and officially declare them protected!!

Generally people would not mind having a few cats around, managed (fed, cared for & sterilised) by the residents.
The problem starts when people from elsewhere would feed cats leaving food all over. They do not sterilise so the feline population increase.
If residents manage their own colonies in a responsible manner - a lot of problems would not be there in the first place.
Feeders leave a trail of cat-related problems for others to take care of - some would be home elsewhere. If all feeders would sterilise cats, it would be the responsible thing to do. Some feeders would say they have no money...but they would feed&feed and cats would reproduce at other people's doorsteps.

Or even if it IS at their doorstep, I don't think any of us are lucky enough to live in isolation so there will be definitely be neighbours affected. Plus of course sterilisation is GOOD for the cats' health and well-being.
