If you plan to feed cats in your yard, please take responsibility for caring for them. Some people think they are doing a cat a favor to feed them and not doing anything else. I feel really bad for a cat I saw who has an injury and I am feeling like trapping and taking to a vet.
Also, cats do not live as long outside as inside. So if you plan to rescue, please consider in only. I hear of too many stories of people who say, my cat has to be outside for most of the day, they love it too much. In my view, it is nonsense. They get in fights with whatever animal, cat or raccoon. They go missing. Get hit by cars. I know all these stories from people I know. They are well meaning loving people who love their cats and animals. But, these poor animals have lost their lives or have shorter lives.
Cats like the one I found are lucky when they are picked up. Unfortunately people dump these cats, for whatever reason, they are no longer cute and cuddly kittens, they are damaged, one eye, special needs cat as in the one I found. Once they are rescued, they all have unique personalities and love to give. Time and patience is key to transitioning them, but wow, what a reward for both the cat and person.
They are learning so much more about animals today and their intelligence. It has blown my mind. I didn’t know that cats could have up to 100 sounds.
