Re: “Halifax‚Äôs feral cat crisis

I'm not so sure this article is giving much sympathy to the cats when it is careless ownership that creates this problem to begin with. I fail to see how a picture of a cat with a leather jacket and a knife helps dispell the myths about feral cats. They aren't remorseless killing machines; it's called survival after they've been abandoned. Feral cats make good pets and often will socialize well enough.

The TNR program is a start, but this population explosion has been around a long time and Halifax council has been BEGGED to give money to rescues to do such programs for years. Great! Now triple that budget, and give it to other rescues to help. Every. Year.

The cats just can't get a break. We see a roaming dog and everyone jumps to help. We see roaming cats and blame them for keeping us awake at night.

Feline disease like FIV and Feline Leukemia are not a risk to other animals or humans either, what these diseases DO effectively do is kill off said ferals in a horrible, long term suffering sort of way.
