too many stray cats!

Syracuse, NY

Im sure it's the same way in every other town, but the city of Sturgis has a stray cat situation! Around my neighborhood there are 15 or more stray cats! Alot of these cats have disease's, & are infecting other animals! Im afraid someone or someone's child will end up gettin bit or scratched by one of these animals. We need to make a law, that all pet owners should have their pets sprayed or neutered, or they will be fined! Does anyone agree with me??

I am a firm believer in spaying and neutering. It is very important. Unfortunately, the problem is so much bigger now due to the ever-increasing cat population. I love cats (and dogs as you can see by my name), and I actually had a stray show up at my home a few weeks ago with FIVE babies! I am taking care of them until the babies get old enough then will try to give them a good home. I have 4 pets of my own (all of which have been altered), so adding the expense of having another cat spayed or neutered (sorry, I can never remember which is which) for a cat that I don't plan to keep is a difficult decision. In larger cities, there are programs that do pick up strays, spay or neuter them, and release them or find them a good home. I live in the Coldwater area so I don't know the exact situation in Sturgis, but I can certainly tell you it's an issue there as well. I do wish more people would be responsible enough to take care of their cats, but you also need to think about farms and other rural areas where there may be many cats, and a farmer isn't going to pay to have a bunch of barn cats altered.
