When I worked at the vet clinic we had to put down feral kittens almost daily. No one wants to waste their time on cats that are feral when there are adoptable animals, so those tend to go first.

I am sure there some cats that no matter how much the owner tries no matter how responsible they are the cat could or would hurt an innocent person.

If I ever get a cat feral car or kitten cat might be more work or more dangerous.

Whats sad is the ferals have had sweeps of kittens come and they just disappear by the time they are 3 months old. The last litter we had had parasites so we got some medication to put in their food, only 1 out of 8 kittens survived.

Yes. The sad thing is a cat spay runs $300-400 here in Canada, I hear it's cheaper in the states.

Holy....
Yeah a lot cheaper. I think around $90ish at a vet, or $20 when the humane society does a spay/neuter event.

Cats are great but why do people breed them for cash when the exact breed at a shelter cheaper needs a home more and is on death row.

Most people Are just too cheap to spay/neuter, selling a kitten is difficult unless it comes altered. Most people give them away and have a hard enough time doing that. I do however support reputable breeders breeding purebreds properly- not the 97% of the worlds domestic short hairs aka mixed breeds.

Because kittens would be "soooo cute".

Ugh.

Around here there is a local program that traps, neuters, and releases feral cats.

And to add my myth, I'm always getting "Ew, ferrets stink/bite/ are aggressive"
