The last litters I brought to a shelter in Sedona that is no kill, and was pleased to see them get adopted out. Locally my only options are to stand with a basket in front of the grocery store - my local animal control would only destroy them within 48 hours.
I am about ready to find homes for some of these, and I will keep a few. I need to sit down and honestly budget how to afford their neuterings, other health care needs, food and litter. I have one cat left from last year's strays and I think i will keep three from this summer.
I have to find a way to make sure this doesn't happen again each summer, but have no ideas how this can be done. I can trap the strays, but i can't afford to neuter them all!
