  1. Please stop allowing paid ads by cat breeders! In this case, bengal cat breeders! The cat overpopulation problem is soooooo bad in the United States right now. We do not need any more cats being bred, while millions of cats are now being forced to live on the streets, because even the shelters are full and not taking in any cats or immediately euthanizing them, if they do!

  2. Can’t agree more-there needs to be more robust laws controlling illegal breeders who are in business for one reason only and that is to make money usually at the expense of the well being of the cats . But regular cat owners who don’t get their cats fixed and let them out (brain dead people by the way) are as much to blame for thousands of litters that are born every year with the subsequent deaths of cats and kittens in kill shelters A lot of thiese needless deaths could be gradually reduced if people were to use their brains and exercise a little more responsibility with their pets. Kittens that are born out in the “wild” quite often suffer horribly and that is a consequence of owners letting their unfixed cats run wild and breeding not to mention the numerous dangers out there for outdoor cats.

    • Totally agree people are so stupid and irresponsible for not desexing there cats and dogs it should be compulsory. They think one litter them one more and so on won’t hurt and that they will all go to amazing forever homes.. they are so brain dead it’s not funny ! Morons !

  3. Cats should be licensed just like dogs and must have tattoo or microchip! Heavy fines if found wandering outside! Also all must be neutered or spayed and if not a breeders license to breed cats!

  4. Irresponsible breeder got in over their heads. Instead of running a ad for adoptions they just threw their “product” away for someone else to clean up. Wouldn’t lower the price to sell a cat but they’ll throw them out like trash. Shameful. Most will get homes right away but the older and non social cats will get stuck in the shelter till they get enough fosters to work with them.

    • you got it right! Probably some breeder got over her head and or got elderly and her family took care of the problem. The cheapest way possible. Guess we have to be thankful they didn’t just leave them in cages to starve to death. And Thank God for trappers. I just helped a friend who is elderly and she fell and her family took her to live with them. They were going to owner surrender to the shelter all of her cats. So I stepped in and trapped all the ferals and found a friend to take to her Barn Cat program and then I took 9 of her tame cats. So it’s all about the Cats for me…..

      • You are a good person with a big heart, not only taking all of the tame cats in yourself but trapping the ferals to ensure they also survive. Ferals taken to shelters are always killed. There are so few people out there that would do that for a friend, a neighbor or even a stranger. Hope you are sharing your story with the public in your area to inspire others to step in and up when someone old or ill needs to move into a facility or with family. Too many relatives either leave the door open and let the animals out or they dump them at the shelter instead of doing the right thing and finding them homes or placement with rescues. And for God Sakes people have a living trust or make sure your wishes and a will are in place with money set aside to ensure your pets have a place to go if something happens to you. So many people don’t and this kind of scenario plays out daily in America.
