Good post. I thought about starting a thread when the cops called me about it. I am glad they have a wonderful foster mom that is taking care of them. Thank goodness your son found them

They are afraid of being charged at the shelter so they just abandon the animals to die horribly. Shudder. I can't imagine having that on my conscience.

These were too tiny to even be away from their mom yet so they are being bottle fed. Which does happen fairly often around here is the sad thing

Hey we are looking for a couple of kittens! I have had to bottle feed kitties before so I could take two of them permanently. I prefer 2 females if possible- and I will definitely spay them when they get older!

Do they happen to be black? Someone eight years ago left a female black cat on the block I live on. They had multiplied quickly and it wasn t uncommon to see around 15 in this area. It's just out of the city limits and a semi-rural area. They were NOT pests. In fact, they did an excellent job of keeping the mice population at zero. However, recently, after their peaceful existence in this area, someone has decided to eliminate them. The Custer County Fund for Animals had gotten at least half of them neutered/spayed. Their ears were notched. Each one cost them a minimum of $85. Each one that is gone, was one that had been treated, not only neutered, but vaccinated, as well. The latest fatality was a female who was obviously just released 4 days prior to her disappearance. She had generously been shaved also, by the Veterinarian, so whoever trapped her surely knew she had been just treated. All of these cats are black in color, is why I asked what color these were. As everyone knows, I strongly believe in taking care of all animals, showing them respect and kindness. I m not to pleased about this! And it's a proven fact that TNR (trap/neuter/release) is the only way to resolve the issue of feral cats. If you eliminate a feral colony by destroying as many as possible, other feral cats WILL move into the area because its generally abundant in wild food sources and has numerous areas for them to live in. Ask a member of the CCFFA, if you don t agree.

I'm no longer involved with CCFA, but did participate in the TNR you're referring to. It was really a heartbreaking waste of money, but please don't think someone was trapping and killing them after CCFA had arranged to have them altered! Those cats were all carrying a very deadly and fast spreading respiratory disease, and died from the disease ~ along with 3 others that hadn't been fixed.

I agree with you on TNR being the best answer to control, although much controversy makes me question it's effectiveness. For instance, in several studies TNR colonies were run off by more aggressive in tact colonies.

Hopefully cat keepers will continue to be responsible and have their felines altered. Call the sweet lady from CCFA running the program for financial assistance at 232-3727
