SAVE THE FREE-LIVING CATS ON UNSW CAMPUS
http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/UNSW-Campus-cats


THE UNIVERSITY OF NEW SOUTH WALES MANAGEMENT HAS DECREED THAT ALL FREE-LIVING CATS WILL BE REMOVED FROM CAMPUS AND DESTROYED! The trapping program will start this week (4th February 2008)

WHY HAS THIS DECISION BEEN MADE? A severe flea infestation over Christmas 2007 in a university building apparently arose from the bodies of dead cats found in the basement. Several university staff required medical treatment for allergic reactions. Although this is regarded as a serious OH&S issue by university management, we consider that the university's response to this matter is excessive, poorly considered and indiscriminate. The trapping and removal program will involve considerable expense for the university, and will be ineffective both in the short and long term in managing free-living cats on campus.

You cannot currently send a star to Simone because you have done so within the last week.

Use a 7-month flea spray in rooms and do TNR for Ferals

I have signed. I am curious if they mean an allergic reaction or flea bites? Surely it is unlikely for several staff members to get an allergic reaction to fleas? It is more likely that they have been bitten and as with bites they have swollen up. To call this an allergic reaction is a tad melodramatic I feel. Why were so many of them venturing near the basement? Were illegal or other seedy activities being perpetrated in the bowels of the University? Please!! Just get rid of the fleas and get on with your lives!!

why can't we send them to good homes, or just neuter them? culling is so..wrong.
