Even though it is illegal, people abandon cats everywhere. There's a big warning sign at this popular dumping place -- the road to the old abandoned bridge that is a favorite fishing spot. Other favorite spots for dumping are the Walmart parking lot and the docks where the shrimp boats come in.
I don't understand people. There are three rescue groups within two or three miles of that sign where cats are accepted and cared for.
Saint Francis is a no-kill shelter right in town, endowed by a caring lady back in the 1980s. The other day when we stopped by for Bob's flea and heartworm pills we got there at breakfast time for some of the outdoor crew.
The parking lot has far more cats than cars!
There are far too many cats to house them all inside. Arrivals are given shots, spayed or neutered, and allowed to decide if they want to live in one of the many little shelters or the woods. Some cats, those that are sick and injured or under treatment by the vet, do stay in the facility in cages for awhile.
I'm not allowed to come here alone.
I'd come home with a carload of cats! 😍😍😍😍
Who could resist?
