Strays getting out of hand now

I wish to goodness people would " fix"  their cats , its not that hard truly , make a flippin appointment and have it done , if you cant afford it dont have a cat.

We live in the middle of nowhere , probably 3 cat lovers in the region and im being generous .

Freeway we caught and neutered about 4 months ago , a largish boy who piddled in my house happily and fought like a tiger .... now minus his equipment his bad behaviour has stopped , only problem is he has turned into an adult kitten !!!

Cat no 13 has now made an appereance , piddling happily and fighting with my gang , he has now been caught and his appointment is next week thursday ..... yet another large beautiful Tom ......

Cat no 14 is lurking in the sugar cane , and judging by the smell in my kitchen is also piddling happily , and contemplating life as a house cat.

Dear Carol

I sometimes wonder what all the charities are up to. Some of them get funding from overseas and I feel should be a bit more practical on how they spend their money.

One good example of money wastage: Two dogs with sarcoptic mange treated at a local charity. (Keeping in mind that they have a bath in the garden with dip made up already). Both dogs went home with a few dose of Advantix, dip for mange and essential fatty acid supplement. This is a case of bad diagnoses, over-kill with treatment and possibly too much red tape to have enough animals neutered.

Agree with CyberVet. First on list of charitites should be spay, spay and spay, neuter, neuter and neuter. ne charity had a spayathon in Soweto 2 years ago - 200 dog done, and unfortunetley not enough Vets volunteerred to make even more of a difference - but at least 200 cannot produce any longer - and that makes a difference. I also believe before all treatments are done, make sure not more unwanted come into the world.
I only have strays - and have never had a litter of anything, but strays also keep filling up my home.
