The picture of the woman Miss Slade who likes cats and who petted a stray cat in the Jacksonville’s beach area. The cat initially accepted it and then became agitated and bit and scratched. This led to a rabies alert which has consequences for everybody. It creates fear in people and it initiates debates about the effectiveness of TNR and whether stray cats should be eliminated from the environment for human health reasons. It also jeopardises the cat. It can be used to justify killing cats.
