    It would be so great to implement the “Trap, Spay/ Neuter and Return Program” – like in many European countries and other more advanced countries in the world. This is the right solution to reduce the number of strays or feral cats born every year and stop killing so many. I cannot understand why it’s so difficult for local Councils to implement new and more effective animal welfare laws to educate people to treat animals with respect, care for them and help their citizens to desex their cats and dogs with lower fees. Councils should also use the TNR strategy for the strays. The TNR has been used already successfully in Europe and other more advanced countries in the world and the number of unwanted or neglected cats in the areas has decreased dramatically. Please help all those cats and kittens who are born to die in shelters every year. Cats deserve better!

    Fabulous article and analysis with excellent reasoning and conclusions! I see it was written in 2004 and it’s now 2015, so unfortunately, even more than a decade later nothing has changed to adopt this so obviously better approach! My immediate thought is not to give up but to just be more assertive with these facts, educate people and Councils, this is a great article to send them! I’m definitely saving it as my precious point of reference. All animals activists should use this article as their main “weapon”! Thanks, authors if this work – keep up the good work!
