A caregiver wrote in after reading this post and mentioned that she had seen increased dumping in her area after posting some information on her blog. It always pains me - and never fails to amaze me - that people will think that because a caregiver is doing a GOOD job, that it's a good idea to throw more cats in their area. Why on earth would people think that caregivers want more cats? Their own idea is to reduce the number of cats so that they can live out their lives safely. If the number increases, those cats too are at risk. Or perhaps, more accurately these people who dump aren't thinking - or if they are, they are only thinking of themselves.
