Cats In Marion County Florida — 11 Comments

  1. I applaud you for helping out an innocent life. I myself live in the n.e. tip of Marion. I care for a lot more than you. Last count was just over 30, but 28 of them I have managed to get neutered, fixed and all their shots. My highest population was 52 all of those where fixed. It makes it so much easier to find homes for them. It cost me over $150 plus donations I can raise, to feed them. I feed them only dry food and they love it because that’s all they have had. It is very hard feeding that many, my only income is my disability, I am a Polio survivor & . But it can be done, the amount of love & devotion & I live alone with all these cat’s. Keep that love and concern for the cat’s you have and You will never be alone.

    • Thank you very much Michael for commenting and sharing your experiences and your cat rescuing with other visitors to this website.

  2. I am hoping you can help. Someone dropped off an older kitten at my house on Christmas night. It is on my back porch, as I have a dog that wants to eat it. I cannot get anyone to help. If you could please tell me a place I could drop her off at, that will not kill this poor thing.

    • Hello Elaine. Thank you for commenting. You do not say where you live. The best way to find a rescue centre where I’m afraid there is no guarantee that the cat will be rescued and saved, is to go to Google and search for a rescue centre nearby. In the search term you should include the phrase “animal rescue” and the name of the place where you live. Either that or you find a local person who will adopt the cat for you in which case you will be acting at a cat rescue lady temporarily. However I agree that cat shelters are not what they purport to be because they euthanize far too many cats but unfortunately you may have to rely on one unless, as mentioned, you can find someone to adopt cat. Good luck and my best wishes to the cat.

  3. Please tell me why a cat has to be on a leash in Marion co. fl. I can under stand a leash if the cat is trained for it in the city. But in the country where cats are a great help on the farms and most cats will not walk on a leash. My cats (two) would hang them selves if put on a leash. They are great ratters and keep my little chicken farm free of rats that eat feed and are a problem on health issues. You can go to most of the horse farms in marion that are a great employer of our citizens and find they have cat in the barns and are will cared for. Need to change that law. Is there anyone out there that can help me resend the cat leash law? Frances
