This article in the Trib caught my eye yesterday. It’s about the residents of West Town raising $12,000 to care for a feral cat colony after their carektaker, a homeless man, froze to death.
Yeah, you read that right. A human froze to death because he didn’t have proper shelter. He was living in a makeshift shack in an alley. But don’t worry, his colony of feral cats will be looked after.
$12,000 could have put the guy up in a decent apartment, or helped him get a job (teach a man to fish), but instead it will now go to ensuring that his colony of feral cats get only the finest IAMS. Although, from the fundraiser page, it sounds like they have plenty of rats to eat.
