There appears to be a fallacy circulating in Tokoroa that there is no stray cat problem.
I invite the naysayers to my property where there are four transient strays in residence.
As this is the kitten season, male cats roam far and wide in an effort to widen their gene pool,such is the nature of undesexed ‘‘toms’’.
Herein lies the problem, should these toms be desexed by their irresponsible owners, the problem would rapidly abate.
As to the matter of council not funding the local SPCA, I was always taught that cats are animals.
If we as ratepayers pay a portion of our rates for animal control, why cannot the SPCA, be funded for what is indeed a community problem ?
