We never know the path others are traveling

It saddens my heart that so many are sick and so many are dying. May we at this time pause and have a moment of silence for those that we have lost. They are our family members, friends


I don’t know if you are aware of this, but we have too many kitties on 700 East in Spanish Fork. People have been dropping off their unwanted cats and kittens in the vacant lot and they have been going across the street to live outside at a very tender-hearted elderly couple’s home. There must be about 20 extra cats there, outside, and winter is coming! This, of course, would be a very overwhelming dilemma for any homeowner. One cannot let all these kitties starve, but there has been no decrease in new cats being dropped off and new kittens being born. Not only is it not good for these animals, but it isn’t safe or hygienic for the neighborhood.


How can we solve this problem that has developed behind a grocery store and around many family homes? People have been catching some of the cats to bring to the animal shelter, but most are feral and need cages to be caught. This is overwhelming for the few that are working to save the cats.


Could the field be leveled and the weeds kept short, presenting a less-tempting area for the abandonment of the cats? Could signs be posted to prohibit this practice? Could the signs have the names, addresses and phone numbers of the animal shelters in the area so the cats could be taken there instead? 


Please share with me your ideas, thoughts and possible solutions. These kitties need our help and so do the families on this street. Together we can make a difference and solve this problem.
