Hello, I just want to see if I can reach a consensus opinion on this.
A friend of mine lives on a farm. She found four kittens in the barn of her sisters farm next door. She says that the parent cats are wild. She is feeding them each day. The parents are never fed. She says that when they are grown she will stop feeding them and just let them go wild.
I said that this is cruel and that she should give them to a rehoming centre if that is really her plans. I suggested that they should be neutered if she intends to keep them but she says that she won't because she can't afford it. I think that her views are appalling but she thinks that I'm soft and that her way of doing things is how cats are reared on farms. So, what do you think?
I can't understand why she is sentimental towards them now but is basically condemning them to a miserable life.
I'm not trying to upset anyone so please keep your replies short and direct. I'm seriously thinking of getting the kittens taken away by the ispca but I dont want them put down. Should I take them away myself and get them rehomed in Dublin? She lives in west cork.
