Tracy Reeve from Wisbech’s Cat Haven is urging everyone to back a campaign to fight for a cat neutering law.
Animal charities across the country have been struggling to cope with the levels of unwanted cats and kittens and numbers are reaching breaking point.
Tracy believes the only way to deal with the problem would be for government to pass a law so everyone has to get their non-pedigree cat neutered, unless they apply for a special breeding licence.
“To turn a cat or kitten away is the most horrible feeling in the world,” she said. “But trying to educate the public on the importance of neutering is like hitting your head against a brick wall.
“This is happening all over the country and unless something is done, more and more animals will die and the epidemic is being caused by breeding.”
Tracy has started a petition in the Market Place shop and would like as many people as possible to sign it. She also has extras if others want to collect signatures as well. For more information contact Tracy on 07549-628646.
