Everyone knows feral cats are usually not good adoption candidates unless captured very young. Trap, Fix, Return. Lay off feral cats. My cats are from a feral family and they are super intelligent, loving cats.

Update- Go here to read this incredible notice.

This is a notice to suppress feral cats signed by Joe Ramirez's boss, Gail Vangordon. It is 11 months old. I hear it resulted in 150 cats being impounded and 120 killed.

Here, Van Gordon does not even bother to supply any evidence of a disease risk other than it could happen, just as she did with ground squirrels in Santa Monica. Joe and Vector Control may have already been suppressing ferals all over the County and we have not known about it.

Here at work in the city are two ladies that catch the stray cats and have them sterilized. The cats are brouhgt back to the gardens where they are used to living. It does sound cruel, but it is the only familiar place they know and the gardens are huge and they are fed too.
