One reader certainly thinks so.
Here is his dissenting comment to yesterday’s post.
Re: Your blog âcrazy cat ladyâ. Everyone soon or lateÂ needs a little compassion but if we want it we need to foster it.
TV3âs entrapment of the cat lady wasnât. They vilified her. If TV3Â were outside our door weâd be upset too? Especially if neighboursÂ had hurt our cats. Itâs persecution! The lady didnât hurt anyone.
Sheâs adopted cats that were abandoned. She did it out of care. ManyÂ poorer folk have cats. They love them. Theyâre trying to make theÂ rent and their cats provide love. I think itâs an intolerant lawÂ that lets a person hurt neighbours and cause heartbreak when they findÂ their wee mates dead due to hate. This is cruelty.
Re: the picture of aÂ cat dead in a Timm trap, itâs not humane. Itâd be terrible for theÂ family that loved this cat to see this! The SPCA list of shame showsÂ what the some Â are capable of. This encourages it. Cats are companionsÂ for the aged, families with kids, all kinds of people.
I’m for decentÂ approaches to problems not persecution
