7 pages?  I only read the first!

Reading further I find: "A few years ago, we ran an ad offering to pay
for an outdoor enclosure, to keep the cats in. We got no takers."
That's just silly.  People love their cats here too, but I think if you
offered free enclosures you'd get a lot of takers.  Still, at least the
case ended up being dismissed.

        Thanks Peter - I hadn't time to read all 7 pages.
        If that is the nub of the problem I recommend a solution used
here in Bayside, namely to get a sympathetic vet to talk to the cat
feeder and say the alternative to them being killed is for them to be
neutered.   That way our Council has reduced stray cats breeding in the
wild to near zero.

                I can understand people wanting cats, and people taking
in strays, but
                the practise of feeding strays while allowing them to
remain strays has
                always annoyed me. But I'd feel very uncomfortable about
them being
                shot near a built up area (where I might be wandering),
                unofficial shooting.
