Hello Nikita,

Such a terrible situation...You've done a wonderful job bringing so much important info to light.

Thanks for stopping by my blog this morning! You asked where the links are to all the Real Housecats' blogs.

Real Housecats Premiere!

Their name IS their link. All but one (Noah) has a blog and you just have to click the name and you'll be instantly teleported!

Also, if you go to the current post, all the links are right there. Just click on the pink colored names. : )

Have a fun weekend!

We all have microchips BUT our local animal shelter does not bother to check for microchips.

They do a dreadful job reuniting owners with lost pets and are notorious for killing the animals in their care.

Mommy is trying to help change that, but it is slow going cause the dummies in charge don't care about the animals.

Nikita, you are doing a grand job spreading awareness of the problems associated with shelters.

We salute you.

Cats handed in to shelters are frequently labelled as "feral" because they are assessed by poorly trained staff and these cats are terrified, hence the "wild" behaviour which is fear aggression, not attack aggression.

These cats are killed.

Pregnant strays are often killed too because no one assesses them properly.

It's totally shameful and heartbreaking.

TNR needs to be a city ordinance everywhere.

Don't get us wrong, we have big problems in the UK too.

Strays and ferals are frequently killed due to assessment errors/lazyness/ignorance of feline behaviour and sadly, due to the sheer numbers handed in or dumped.

The RSPCA have a dreadful record of killing cats who, with time and care could be rehomed.

Get that chip Nikita, if you escaped outside and got lost, it could save your life - assuming that the shelter has the right type of scanner!

Thank you, everyone for the comments, especially Oliver & Gerry!

As a friend of our Daddy points out...Unfortunately it's not isolated to the OC shelter, it's pretty much everywhere...

There are just too many unneutered cats reproducing.

Unfettered sex is just not the best way for Felinity Assembled to take over the world, and that's a fact.

Daddy's Friend says she has left instructions that their cats are to be put down if a home can't be found for them among family and friends.

She instructed that they are not to be taken to a shelter but to their vet.

Her reasoning is that "I do not want them to suffer the horrors of the shelter only to meet the same fate in the end... & very few old cats are adopted in any case."
