We met this starving cat near one of our neighbors houses. We could see her ribs, so we would drop by every day and feed her.

Her ribs started to show again, and we gave her extra food, but one day she was gone, and we haven’t seen her since.

Some people do care, such as Ethan and Caleb. But it is not enough frankly. This website is not enough. It scratches the surface.
Fundamental changes are required in ownership of cats, abandoning cats, dealing with feral cats and in veterinary services that fail cats miserably (i.e. declawing which perpetuates a lot of poor behavior).
This is another tidbit of exotic Americana; the world of private zoos, exotic cats and…
This is an interesting and perhaps a landmark legal case regarding writing posts on Facebook…
