That's a good idea! I'm actually going to a CP open day in Birmingham on Saturday, but there's someone on Catchat who fosters for them-i'll have a word!

you've got me thinking now, Shirley

I am a member of CP, and they stand to inherit a fair percentage of my money when I die, and I am asking myself why they do not seem to do more than just mop up after other people have abandoned or neglected their cats, and allowed unwanted kittens to be born

I think myself they should be playing a more active part in stopping irresponsible ownership - handing out neutering vouchers is all very well and good, but the kittens still keep coming

so I am wondering if they would sponsor any petition you get going, and get some clout behind it - have you been in contact with them?

Thank you Henrietta! I shall be submitting another petition later, tho just to do with cats, and different wording. If you think it's been bad on here, you should look at Preloved!

I'm so sorry that you feel you must withdraw the petition Shirley but quite understand how the tone of things has got to you. I shall continue to sign
petitions but not make comments any more as I'm beginning to feel uncomfortable with the atmosphere. Good luck to you.

Millysmum-what do you mean by " Catchat is a bit spammy everywhere" ? I'm not good at computer speak

Posting the same thing over and over in topics that are not relevant to it is known as 'spamming'

I have signed because I think it is the responsible thing to do.  I have also signed a petition to bring back the dog licence.

I don't know about the dog issue but you could also have added all chavs neutered at 12  :shify:

Here, here  :evillaugh:

Most people who dont bother to take their ill cats to the vets so.....how are we supposed to expect them to get them neutered?  :-: I'd say this should come in second and a law about back street breeding approached first  :shy:

Its these people that are causing the "mess"  :tired:

The thing is, if it was law, there would have to be some kind of penalty for breaking the law. I think this would lead to cats and kittens being killed if people thought they were going to get caught. I think it is all about education - although this is like  :brick:
DO NOT BREED OR BUY WHILE SHELTER ANIMALS DIE

I believe I am not interested to know whether Vivisection produces results that are profitable to the human race or doesn't. To know that the results are profitable to the race would not remove my hostility to it.  Mark Twain

Well would sign for cats but not for doggies - Our Sky was done at 18 months due to a heart murmer which thankfully now ok and Sunny will be done next month at 13 months

I was lucky both have showed no interest in girls but both love the boys the next door! :shocked:

Thank you Shirley.

I was debating whether to admit I won't sign  :shy: it's an issue I think a lot about to be honest. I am actually torn. But Im pretty certain that any future dogs I have will not be done at 6 months. They would be done just a little later and I wouldn't want to be breaking the law  :evillaugh: whilst hearing about all the dogs who have no problem I keep hearing a fair share with issues which are attributed to being done too early.

It's a shame really to have to think about neutering such young animals purely because of the stupidity and naivity of certain members of the human race  :(

But I totally see where you are coming from!

No problem Den. Originally it was going to be just cats but a few people mentioned dogs as well so they were added! I had my own dog (RIP Suzy ,a beautiful cross collie)) neutered before her first season, way back in 1980, and she lived until she was 12.1/2. Had to be pts because of throat cancer, but had no other health issues before that.

I'm not going to sign it. I'm happy to be honest and explain why - feedback whether positive or negative is always good.

The petition covers both cats and dogs. If it was just cats I'd have no objections. There is a lot of evidence and studies done which shows that early neutering in dogs isn't such a good thing. There are increased behavioural issues, growth issues, increased cancer risks. So for me personally I do not believe in neutering dogs at 6 months. I would rather wait for maturity and growth plates to be closed. For giant breeds it's not recommended to neuter until 2 years of age. Whilst I would be happy to support mandatory neutering I would want the age raised from 6 months as I don't believe that's in the dogs best interest.
