A Comment from Catherine Ens, Niagara Action For Animals
Posted July 12th, 2016 on Niagara At Large
Niagara, Ontario – While the story about residents going to St. Catharines city council this July 11th demanding a bylaw for licensing cats has a ‘silly’ side, it also presents a serious message to the deadbeats who love their kitty until at the age of six months or so, she becomes a bit straggly looking, or she decides to sharpen her claws on the sofa or the litterbox is JUST to much of a chore.
So out she goes, dumped on a road side somewhere or left outside to fend for herself and ultimately pregnant – now one cat becomes five or six, all scrounging around garbage or killing other wildlife; doing what comes naturally and doing the best they can to eak out a living, so to speak.
PLEASE FOLKS, get your companion animals spayed and help to prevent the spiralling- out-of-control ‘pet’ overpopulation.
As well – for a multitude of reasons – please do your best to keep them indoors!
As the co-founder of Niagara Action for Animals, a local charity in the Niagara, Ontario region, who advocates for animals, we all need to start taking our responsibilities for companion animals to heart.
About Niagara Action for Animals – Niagara Action for Animals is a non-profit, all volunteer charity devoted to ending all forms of animal cruelty through education, direct action and legitimate protest.
