Very informative article!
O.T. I just wanted to mention this...
Last week I watched a program on the Animal Planet channel which was about the SPCA in Detroit. In the program, the SPCA had to remove cats from an animal hoarder's house, and the program did a good job of showing what the conditions inside the house were like. They finally ended up with a total of something like 250 cats that had lived in the house but hadn't ever had any human contact. EVERY SINGLE ONE of these cats was humanely put down!!!
The explaination given was that the cats were so feral they could never be rehomed.
