Fighting Stray Overpopulation

IN a paw-sitively impactful initiative, the Costa Animal Society has achieved a remarkable feat in the battle against feline overpopulation. The society proudly announces the successful neutering of 180 female cats and 75 male cats in 2023 across Nerja, Maro, and Frigiliana. A round of applause is in order for the society’s dedication to curbing the stray cat population, with a grand total of 255 cats no longer able to contribute to the cycle of reproduction.
This significant effort translates to an estimated prevention of around 2160 unwanted kittens! Yes, you read it right – over 2160 kittens were spared from the challenges of street life. As we step into 2024, the Costa Animal Society urges continued support and generosity. Donations are the key to sustaining this impactful work, ensuring that the costs of neutering are covered. Together, let’s strive for zero population growth in street cats and make a lasting difference in the lives of our feline friends.

I am an Irish writer who has been living in Spain for the past twenty years. My writing centers around the Costa Cálida. As a mother I also write about family life on the coast of Spain and every now and then I try to break down the world of Spanish politics!
I have to say I am pleased that this is happening. In my area the cat population is dropping and I know because I feed them daily. These little guys are tough but what we must also remember that many were delibertly abandoned by their owners. So please show respect to these cats. My urbanisation is always threating us with fines for feeding these little guys but when I raise the issue of dog shit, nothing, gone completely quiet but I see dog shit as the biggest problem but in my urbanisation there are many dog lovers, dog shit on every pavement, the most guilty dog owners are the early morning and late evening walkers. These people seldom pick up their dogs shit, I have many French and Belguim neighbours so I am pretty sure they are the culprits. But if you see stray cats remember that many were house pets and abandoned by their owners who returned home leaving their cats here in Spain. The authorities talk nice but in all honesty here in Spain the authorities tell you what you want to hear and do the complete opposite.
