Cat population in Lake Worth

FANO* lives with me, not by choice.  She does come in and help distract me when I’m trying to do FB or just write my blog.  She is intuitive,  my husband  spotted her and went after her with a broom.  She stays out of his sight and hopefully out of his mind.DSCN9704

There is much to learn about what is going on in Lake Worth and why we are getting FREE extended neutering and spaying for cats  from the Peggy Adams clinic.  They do this  for Lake Worth 33460 if you bring them in.  Ok, they will not accept one without a trap, don’t ask me.  I was going to take FANO in my HomeDepot orange bag, seemed reasonable. DSCN9707

The process was humane.  My neighbor took me as he was already making a trip with a friend who had to euthanize her pet dog of many years.  Peggy Adams is a full service facility for pets.  They even hold a clinic on Tuesdays.  They make sure you get a fixed up kitten if your into adoption.   June 14-22 you can adopt a cat there for only $9 all done. DSCN9783DSCN9775

Of the record “money is being tossed at Peggy Adams” via grants, as it is a crisis in Lake Worth.  We in Lake Worth have a big problem.  Ferral Cats!  By my estimation each sq. block in Lake Worth has 20-50 cats.  Truly, my neighbor alone has seven ferral cats, now only six, plus two raccoons.  Right down the street some cat dropped a litter.

In fact the whole country seems to be aware of this.  So if you know of a litter that is producing and these cats do.  For every mom and dad not fixed by the end of the year you can easily have over sixty cats.   See the problem, they fuck like inkminks.

*looking for an appropriate name.  I did not want something sissy.  Could you hear me calling out a silly high-pitched name so she would come.  I looked around my room and spotted a certificate earned some years ago from Florida Association of Nonprofit Organizations a Certificate in Nonprofit Management with honors to moi.  enhanced with appropriate gold seal and embossing .  Hence FANO10295720_10202669153622611_394970893855890157_n

    Yes, indeed a huge problem. Feral cats, even during their short life span, can and do wreak havoc on the bird and small rodent population. Some people think that is good, b/c no rats or less rats, but the harm done to our natural world is worse. Of course, feral cats also spray and poop and dig all over well kept yards and spread disease and pests too.
