If the father had been neutered, the tragedy wouldn't have happened. We really need to educate more folks about this.

I've never understood why one would NOT want to neuter or spay a domesticated cat that is allowed outside. Not doing so only triples the chances that the cat will run off, become ill, have kittens elsewhere and not want to return, or many other hazards. The only reason not to have either a cat or dog fixed is if it has a champion pedigree and perfect conformation. Them MAYBE it makes sense to breed it. MAYBE.

I signed his Facebook page and pray his life is not being measured in days, but in larger time groups. He is adorable.

Sorry, but you really have to be living under a rock to not know about spay/neuter. My guess is that they thought they could sell the cats and make some money.

Ja miałam kota chorego na fipa, lekarz dawał mu tydzień życia, a żył u mnie ponad 8 miesięcy. Niestety to choroba nieuleczalna i nie udało mi się go uratować. Odszedł za "tęczowy most".

Thanks for sharing. No matter how long Duke lives, at least he's happy. There's a lesson to be
learned and b/c of Duke and his humans, we're learning it. No judgement, just learning!
