About the Authors
This past year, we overlooked a single female in our quest to neuter all cats. Her two recent litters bear out the statistics that we present in the introduction to our book. For throughout the introduction, the stories, and the photographs, we hope to illustrate in multiple ways the necessity of an active policy of trap, neuter/spay, and return.
Remember these pictures with more than your minds. Remember them with your hearts and consider. . . . .
Homelessness, with all its loneliness, deprivation, hunger, illness, fear, prejudice and cruelty, is not just a human condition.
Like humans, alley cats love, explore, play to exhaustion, frolic, and even dance.
Often alley cats, like people, find themselves in situations that call for sheer guts.
As with human babies, alley kittens can be exquisitely beautiful or truly unsightly.
Some alley cats, as some people, must bear either physical or emotional scars for life.
When you see our pictures, allow yourselves to feel. Cats exist with us, fellow travelers in this universe. They are not an inferior species, simply one on a different plane.
