Thanksgiving is the time of year that we begin to reminisce about all the things for which we are thankful. Even though we appreciate our good job, nice home, dependable car, family, and friends throughout the year, the Thanksgiving Holiday makes us even more thankful for our blessings.
There has been a recent rise in the population of feral cats in Hawaii. There are several different factors that contribute to this rise in population including the fact that people have been discarding unwanted, unfixed cats into the wild as a means to get rid of them. This, in fact, only makes the situation worse! When cats reproduce they have a litter of 5 to 10 kittens and when these kittens are born outside without human contact, they, too, become feral. Also, some people try to ‘help’ by feeding these feral cats – which only helps them to be healthier and stronger, which, again, makes the situation worse instead of better!
