There are a lot of cats around here. Only a few are friendly; most are pretty shy. We ‘have’ one. Haha! We fed it, so now it stays on our front mat and rubs against our legs when we go out. Myka and Emery watch her and talk to her.
Tomorrow she goes to the vet to be fixed.
Two of our friends here have taken on the job of getting the cats in the compound spayed and neutered. It keeps these fairly friendly ones here, stops other more wild cats from moving into the compound, and slows the growth of the cat population. They also work on getting the friendlier cats adopted so that they are loved and cared for.
I may seem like a small, silly thing to care about – stray cats. But they are here, and we are here, and we can do something little to help.
You can tell a lot about someone by how they treat animals.
