Our neighborhood had dozens of cats breeding and rebreeding without anyone stopping the cycle. I was recovering from throat cancer when I decided to step up and try to help these cats. I barely had enough money to provide food for my family but I started putting food out for those stray or homeless cats who dared to approach my porch. I could not look the other way any longer.
I had contacted many organizations but no one would listen to me. I could not find anyone willing to help me nor have the knowledge of a popular TNR program. I was tired of watching people look the other way and seeing cats suffer through the weather. I still don’t understand why Bates county is not working with a Veterinarian.
