What a shame - this is obviously what makes the site special.... do away with the kitty energy and you do away with the charm.

Signed the petition- thanks Kit. Most Romans understand that cats are a very effective means of rodent control. Glad they have the support of the Mayor.

The two times I have been to Rome, the feral cat issue is noticeable, not offensive, noticeable. I am amazed at the number that have been trapped. They have always been part of the landscape, and are doing no harm.

Noted......leave these kitties alone. Please keep taking care of them. Let's worry less about history and more about the future....these kitties' future.

For every action there is a reaction. According to the law of karma, if we cause pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in return, both individually and collectively. We reap what we sow, in this life and the next, for nature has her own justice. No one can escape the law of karma
