PoC Podcast: Ethical Treatment of Feral Cats

I feel that decisions regarding the management of feral cats must be ethical. This is the starting point and the foundation for all decisions regarding feral cats. It is something which is rarely clearly stated by local governments when deciding what to do about feral cats.

This is a test podcast. I’ll be doing more in the future. It’s flawed and raw but I’ll get better. I would like the views of visitors on presenting the spoken rather than the written word. It is more difficult to present the spoken word.

  • These are starving domestic animals. I will never understand why all the hate and anger and abuse is directed at the victims of human animal abuse.
    Have there been any studies done on how far a dumped cat will migrate from it's original home ? Not including those that are driven and dumped. I mean seriously the next time you see a feral cat get mad at humans not the animal suffering from neglect. If you see an abused child on TV do you want to kick the child ?

  • Absolutely, these poor animals have many enemies in Nature but Man is the biggest and worst! Such humble creatures. I feel people who hate and abuse them should come back as ferals to see how hard their life is!They are so loving , once given the opportunity to be loved and fed. I have learned so much about them over the years. One thing is certain , they like other animals that man has been given Stewardship over, do not deserve to suffer as they do living outside and on their own.

    • I have a tender spot in my heart for feral cats. They deserve better from people. Some people are very kind to them. These are the people I admire.
