Thanks, Dervish, for bringing this to the attention! Mom just talkin' today that kittening season is about to start. She think about Bailey, Brutus, Julius, Porky, Bess, Gulliver, Matthew, Mark, Luke, Ruth, and Sarah. They were all our little babies who got socialized and went to homes last year. Then there be the critical baby, Phoenix-Naomi who stayed. And me. The grown up kitty who came at the end of the season and I still be here. Mom got a call this week and she and the drop box will go out for their first trapping this Wednesday. TNR the grownups, socialize and home the babies. Support your local TNR. Donate through Petsmart! And if you know someone who needs a black tux - I'm still looking for my furever home!
That's a point that can't ever be made too frequently. Mom likes to point out that at low-cost spay neuter clinics, the price of a spay or a neuter is less than what it would cost to take the family out for dinner at a restaurant and the health benefits of spaying and neutering as well as the fact that a spayed or neutered cat is so much easier to live with, all makes it well worth it in addition to doing your part to avoid contributing to pet overpopulation.
