Good job on
I would like to thank the owners of the property located west of the Social Security Administration building near Bucklin Hill Road in Silverdale. Because of their timely efforts the Scotch broom on their property will not scatter seeds this year. Scotch broom, an introduced species, is invasive and restricts the growth of native species. Thank you for your efforts!
Fix that cat
If your cat hasnt been spayed or neutered yet, please do it right away. Dont contribute to the overpopulation problem. Why would you allow more kittens to be born when there are no homes for many homeless cats now?
If your cat does have kittens, its your responsibility to care for them. Make sure that every kitten (mom, too) is altered before going to a new home. Get help from a rescue group or shelter that will make sure they are fixed before adoption. Kittens can be safely altered after eight or nine weeks.
Many people think kittens are cute but lose interest when the cats grow up in a few months. Think of the poor, lonely adult cats at the shelter who would love to go to a good home but probably wont because no one wants them.
We can do something about it. We are all the cats have. Please spay or neuter your cats to help save homeless cats lives.
