Letters: Adopt a cat

Letter writer feels locals should support new car rescue group

Re: Sooke News Mirror, May 23, “Strays and feral cats aided by new group.”

For our homeless felines, an organization (SAFARS) has now set up in Sooke. Thank goodness, a much needed facility, run singly by one woman. Feeding, cleaning, vet appointments and on and on it goes.

Believe me, she could sure use some help. Everyone seems to get aid and help in Sooke, so why not this worthy cause?

The SPCA received a great donation from a deceased man in Sooke who meant to include feral cats and forgot. So please, let’s keep these poor animals that are mainly brought here from Victoria and literally just dropped off anywhere, ditches, garbage, you name it. Can you imagine, coming from a loving home, or abusive home having this done.

So, I implore you, please show some compassion and donate food, bedding, litter, donations for vet bills. They spay these feral cats and let them go, but mostly would like you to foster an older cat. You may even get to love it. I suggest a booth be set up for ‘Adopt a Cat.’
