Kitties May Starve to Death

Kitten... :(

Kittens in the Keys may be trapped and then spayed. That doesn’t seem so bad until they mention the part about the kittens that are going to be trapped and wont be returned to where they were captured to begin with. This means that most of those cats will die of hunger because their main food source is their mother's milk.

Newborn kittens may suffer a painful demise -- death by starvation -- when the federal government traps and removes outdoor catsfrom a wildlife area in southern Florida.

When the government catches lactating moms and can’t find their kittens, it does not plan to spay and return the moms so they can finish nursing their newborns, said Sylvia Pelizza, spokeswoman for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS). The kittens will be left to die, deprived of their main food source, their mother’s milk.
