Pakistani lady feeding feral cats is hated by the educated and praised by the uneducated — 3 Comments

  1. i love my kitty, Lex, very much so a part of me applauds her trying to help how she can, but there should be a better way for her & them. i mean, the people that have issues with all those cats being in the streets potentially causing accidents, etc DO have a valid point so lets not villify them for raising issues that SHOULD be addressed. i personally i think there SHOULD be some sort of animal shelter that these cats could be taken to so they could get adopted or something. her just feeding them out in the open every night & then leaving them to continue to fend for themselves doesnt seem like the safest thing for THEM in the long run nor HER feeling she must spend her money on ALL of those cats when she needs to take care of herself too(healthy caregiver healthy cat). additionally, i dont think its wise to train them to think EVERY person will feed them, cuz then that CAN become a problem like the squirrels at the local college. those squirrels will come right up to you & take your,or your childs, french fries, etc as a result of so many people tossing them food on a regular basis(its also unhealthy for the squirrels as hamburgers SHOULD NOT be a part of their diet). there should be a way for them to get adopted or something. at least that way they will have someone that will be responsible for them, individually or in small groups, to keep them SAFE as well as fed. cuz feeding is only a small part of caring for an animal, their safety should ALWAYS be paramount. i can also see why some would view what shes doing as a nuisance though. lets be honest, a ton of cats out in the open like that, right near a roadway, is a recipe for disaster for those poor cats. i have seen way too many dead animals, especially cats/kittens, on the roadways near my home as it is to NOT look at the pic of all those cats near a street & not see this as a recipe for disaster. thats NOT me “bad mouthing” her or “downing” her efforts to help them, its just me being realistic about her needs, & the needs those cats. i guess its the whole ‘feed for a day…’ thing: you can feed them daily, have them remain dependent on you, & leave them in harms way, OR you can try to have them adopted, so they ALL have a home they can go to to, get fed, & stay off the street so they stay out of harms way on a more permanent basis.
