I do see your point, however we like to limit their numbers as low as possible because they will mate with irresponsible owner's cats, who in turn contribute to the shelter population, also many of them are hit by cars, and of course there are those cruel people who kill them for pooping in their yards. :(
And in my case all the kittens die of parasites and it's pointless to have them born if they're going to die by 3 mos old.

I do think they should live in the wild because having them in shelters takes up space of adoptable cats; however I believe in spaying and neutering them to prevent such overpopulation.

Good point plus feral cats eat endangered species so we can not have a feral cat colony in places with species that need protection like small birds.

False! It makes it much harder for them to read anything, such as Betta forum posts, when what they're reading doesn't contain any of these things. Bettas need correctly written posts to be able to understand what the post is trying to say. Although minor mistakes are always forgiven because the Bettas understand that everyone misspells a word sometimes. They also know it's difficult to type with their tiny little pectoral fins, so whenever someone punches the wrong letter on the keyboard, it is also generally forgiven. But they do strongly suggest that other Bettas on the forum attempt correct grammar as much as possible. Otherwise, the Bettas will mostly disregard what the offending Betta writes, since they assume that any Betta typing that way has nothing of note to write.
What are you trying to imply I try my best to put proper grammar in. I have a hard time getting my thoughts on paper/computer.

Or rodents. Believe it or not, there are species of rodents that are threatened. Like the kangaroo rat in Australia, which is under siege by many introduced species, including feral cats.

I know too well the difficulties of penning thought to paper. My brother has a learning disability where he can't write very well. He is very intelligent, he just can't get his thoughts to flow properly when he writes. Its something similar to dyslexia, but not quite.

Are we related? He sounds just like me. Not to sound narcissistic.

i have a bit of that too, but mostly with numbers, which is very frustrating in my line of work (i work in a warehouse doing receiving and sorting work, and frequently have to go back and redo something because i confused two digits on a serial number or product code) it can be really annoying!

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

Nah, I we don't have any relatives in Virginia. There are old family friends who lives in Richmond though. They are just like family to me, despite not having any biological relation.

Oh okay Some people say 3 years is old for Betta a well cared for Betta can live 7-8 years and rarely with big tanks varied food and all 10 years. I do not know if it is true but heard Bettas live longer with tank mates I heard the chasing and guarding of tank mates is good exercise. I also heard chasing the fish with a net every ounce in a while is good exercise.
