Personal Commentary

I don't know why people think Lee's is a good place to dump animals when we have a perfectly good animal shelter.

There is not a guaranteed food source there. The cats could contract disease.

And the feral cats can breed at will!

Those who let their cats breed and cannot find them homes, then dump them, are making it obvious there is an overpopulation of cats!

There are not enough homes.

Fortunately there is a solution. Spay. Neuter Your Cat. Please! Those who cannot afford should be aware that there are programs to assist them.
