Kansas couple fined for feeding and giving water to feral cats — 11 Comments

  1. All I can think of when I see things like this is to think of how many more cats the area would have if all of those cats had been allowed to breed. There would be dozens instead of 21.

  2. Cities that write these grotesque laws don’t suffer any consequences whether human-homeless cats live or suffer and die, so they only see an upside that they could collect fines like this to help balance the city budget. Any rationalization. They don’t think like people, or they’re people who hate cats and don’t care if they suffer. And what about these nice people who do care? It’s a sad society we live in, in so many ways.

    • This is happening more and more. Michael has written a few articles on this. People arrested or fined.

      • The headline should read- Judge orders abandoned pets be allowed to starve and die of neglect. They were practicing TNR. If the cat population kept growing it’s because unprosecuted animal abusers were roaming free after dumping their pet on the street to starve and die of neglect.
        How about wanted posters with pictures especially of the strays asking for information on who dumped this cat.
        TNR will work if we rid everyone of the notion that cats can be tossed out and forgotten. 5 years would almost end feral cat populations and 10 years it would be absolute.
        I know and have spoken to people who are afraid of S/N programs because they might not be able to get their next cat So to ensure easy access they allow kittens to be brought into the world with no thought of what happens to the ones not wanted.
