Some cats lose their homes because they are older and require medical care or they are 'no longer any fun'. When you take in a cat, please be responsible for its whole life.
Feral cats need help just as much as the former house cats do. Ferals can be in need of medical care that they will not get unless YOU do something. Spay and Neuter are most important to stop litters and litters of kittens becoming the next feral population.
There is no reason to abandon a cat because you have a new baby. Cats and babies can make the very best of friends.
There is some sixth sense that tells you when you should trust someone and when you shouldn't. This is GREAT advice.
Many times people walk by an animal in crisis. Please do not be one of those people....DO SOMETHING!!!

Empty buckets can also serve as feeding stations.

There are many cats and kittens that do need you. Please make an effort to help them. Adopt or donate and you will be part of the solution and not part of the problem.
Sometimes we forget that animals have thoughts and feelings just as we do. It is important not to lose sight of that!
