I see you, baby cat 😼
In Abruzzo, we can get female cats sterilised for free at the local council vets. In theory, they are responsible for trapping, neutering and returning all colony cats, but in reality that just doesn’t happen. Volunteers have to trap the cats, take them to the ASL vet, pick them up again, keep them for the night, then re-release them. Not an easy task when most people work.
The council also won’t neuter males, saying that as long as the females are done then the population is controlled - never mind the host of problems that an entire male will have to survive 🤦🏻♀️ .
If we want to get a male neutered, we have to pay for it ourselves
