I have always felt sorry for all the cats that are out on the street.
I feel every cat deserves to have a comfortable home with nice climate control so they don’t freeze in the winter or become overheated in the summer season.
This is why when I see stray cats, I will usually take them into my home. I will leave food and water out for the ones who don’t want to come inside, but they will usually come in during the winter months to get out of the cold weather, especially since I have a comfortable fireplace. I’m always weary when I see animal control come into the neighborhood. The last thing I want is for these poor cats to be taken to an animal shelter where they will be euthanized if they are not adopted. I think that’s the most terrible thing to do to these poor animals. They deserve to have a chance to live and it just seems so cruel. I don’t know why euthanization is even legal in the first place! So I find myself always trying to save as many cats as possible and I have basically turned my home into a kind of animal shelter, but I don’t believe in killing the cats. I do however post a ton of ads online so that people will come to adopt some of the cats. Surprisingly, I have had numerous people come to get most of the cats, so I’m not overcrowded or anything. I feel a connection to the cats and am sad when they leave. It might be that they just are thankful that I provided them with a warm place with a good heating and cooling system, but I like to think we have a more meaningful relationship than just that.
