The placement of the forums have nothing to do with the importance of the issues at hand. It has to do with the evolution of the board and the traffic flow of the forums. The webmistress is devoted to saving the ferals in her country which is why she has set up a separate forum for ferals hhere.
But I must agree w/ Hissy here. I am sure that you will find it quite difficult to find another cat welfare board on the net that dedicates as much time, energy, and has as much knowledge as TCS does to ferals and cat rescue.
