Cat Colony Relocation Protest: As I look at the picture of protesters against moving a "FERAL CAT COLONY" I wonder if they even know what a feral cat is? I also wonder what they told that young girl in the picture what the difference is between a feral cal and a stray cat. My guess probably not. Sad state of affairs when a group of humans wants a feral cat colony to remain in a park where families and children play and enjoy a park. These protesters should take home a feral cat and care for them. Let your children pet them and let me know how aggressive the feral cat became or even snapped at the hand that fed them or pet them. These feral cats should be spayed, neutered and then there lifespan will be shortened for the better. If not perhaps euthanized now.

Wow, what an ignorant and hateful person you are based on your comment alone. It is clear you do not know the difference between a feral and stray cat. A child will not be able to pet a feral cat because the feral cat will never get close enough to a human to pet it, and for sure not hurt a human, they are AFRAID of humans. A stray cat will come closer to humans and often was a house cat that was turned outside or dumped by fabulous type humans like you. These cats are out there due to no fault of their own but the fault of humans, yet we should punish them? Kill them? I was at the rally, I've been to the colony. They pose no threat to any woman, man or child. They have been there for 12 years without ONE incident. And if I set you afoot in the park you would not be able to find the colony. Perhaps you are the one who should be spayed/neutered so that your hateful, uneducated life will be shortened for the betterment of not only the cats but humankind in general. Get a life so that you don't have to pick on other lives that are harmless and innocent.
