How To Kill A Cat.
August 1, 2021 2:17am CST
That is my neighbors question to me when I saw her this morning. Apparently a stray cat gave birth in one part of their roof that is hidden. How am I supposed to answer that? Never in my wildest dream I thought of killing a cat or a dog!?! Maybe a rat but I called the pest control to take care of that problem. The numbers of stray cats in our street is incredibly growing. My neighbors are feeding them but not giving them shelter. The village administration is not doing anything also. Though I am not a cat lover, I do not wish or think on how to kill them.

@iridion9 I am not sure how much because aside from those cats, we also have 5 dogs... They eat rice and fish... For their rice, they consume about 35 kilograms in one month... My mother cooks their own food aside from our leftovers... Aside from that, they also have dry food...
My neighborhood has the same problem. My neighbors feed the stray cats but don't give them shelter. Perhaps the advisable thing to do is to call the pound. And tell your neighbor that what she has in mind is cruelty to animals.,
Your neighbors wanting to exercise the "cruelty" in "animal cruelty" is very disheartening. They could just have the kittens and their mother taken by the city pound or even any of the trusted, legitimate animal organizations that can provide shelter and arrange for eventual adoption.
@rakski Yeah. It's something that tends to get overlooked, these stray cats and dogs. I see a lot of people willing to adopt these animals when I see posts about it on Facebook. The willingness is there, it's just a lack of resources that's the problem.

I have three Terriers. They could clear your street of cats in an hour. You need to call animal control. Doing nothing in this case may cause conditions to get worse for the cats. Especially when neighbors are looking for a way to kill them.

I am not a cat lover either but killing them has never crossed my mind. I just wish that someone is ready to adopt them. Sterilization is the only effective way to control population of street animals. Village authorities should do something about that.
