Now that I have your attention: you guys may already be aware but all our local shelters and rescues are completely overflowing with cats and kittens. Every day, rescues are turning away cats in DIRE need of help and they are dying by the thousands. It happens all the time, every year. This guy was a jailbreak due to be put to sleep on Friday. There are many like him who weren't so lucky.
It's not the pound's fault. It's everyone's. The simple fact is: there are just too many cats in the world.
There are things everyone can do to help:
1. FOSTER! fostering is free, temporary, rewarding, and fun. The rescue you choose to foster with will pay all vet fees and some will even supply you with food. all you have to do is make room in your home. You WILL save lives by doing so.
3. DESEX your pets. If you want more information about how to do this on the cheap, contact your local shelter. Every shelter has a program and usually payment plan that can help. Please reach out to someone if your cat is entire and you need help. There are a million options!
2. EDUCATE yourself! No, your cat doesn't need an outdoor life. No, your pet doesn't need to have a litter to calm down. No, it will not make them fat
4. DONATE if you can't do any of the above.
Ps this fella is called Tommen and yes, you can foster him if you want ;) I'm not writing this in support of any particular rescue. I'm just over seeing ALL our local rescues crying for help. If you can do something, please consider helping out!
