Kitten season is a trial and sad time for rescue groups. So many appeals for help so many kittens and cats and too few resources and adoptive homes. How can this problem be prevented? There is one answer that can take care of this. . .spay and neuter. . .with community cats the additional answer is TNR trap neuter and release) If more people valued cats and altered them it would help the over crowded shelters and rescue groups. One of our volunteers is very good at telling people the realities of the overpopulation issue with cats. Although we know we cannot help them all, it still breaks our hearts to tell people. We all got into rescue by accident or design because we care and we want to help. Recognizing our limitations is hard but is necessary. If we don't then there is the tragic possiblity of becoming a rescue horder. At least though they would be altered. . .nhmmmm no not an answer. Spay and neuter that is the answer!! Adopt don't shop!! Purr for rescues and forever homes!!
