In order to solve a dilemma, we have to fully understand the problem. When you hear your neighbor complain about the ‘stray cat’ leaving footprints on their car, their complaint just doesn’t seem to make the same impact as the complaints of an entire conservancy, animal rights campaign, or even a medical association. Yet, who even knew there was a problem? Much of these complaints go unnoticed and receive very little, if any, publicity.
Sometimes we have to dig a little deeper to see the true dynamics of a situation. We have included this compilation of research links that will offer a better understanding of the ‘silent battle’ that is taking place across the country regarding feral cats. If you have documented, reliable information that you can contribute to our cause, please send us an email. Also, please report broken links. Thank you!
