Found this tiny little crying kitty all alone in the cold- blinded by a goopy eye infection. I brought him in and his whole life turned around. :)
I made the video to show the true effects irresponsible pet owning. My neighbor years ago let their un-neutered cat roam wild and she of course eventually got pregnant, and then had her babies in the wild. Eventually her babies had babies, and her babies' babies had babies, and soon there was a whole overwhelming cat colony, circulating horrible diseases, viruses, and all ridden with fleas, ticks, and worms (and this was the point when i moved next door). As just a kid i couldn't bare to see all of them live like that next door, and i really couldn't bare to see them trying to survive the winters, especially kittens :( The neighbors, an elderly couple who didn't know how to take care of the situation they created, at least fed the cats, so as a kid i would at least help feed them, and give them warm wet food in the winter, but later i finally realized how i could REALLY help, and have been finding ways to give them medicine and get them fixed or find them homes for the past 4 years. Finally after all the hard work, the colony has dropped from over 20, to now only 2 male cats who are doing well. I could have just called the shelter but i know they would have just put them all to sleep due to sickness (97% of cats get put down at my shelter as it is), and not all of them were wild, but friendly and sweet, and i couldn't do that. All the hard work was worth the happy ending.

I have now saved many more cats than Francis, and am now thinking about making more videos about all the rescues because they all have their own very interesting story, but Francis' story is still one of my most favorite rescue stories :)

But to think, allll of this started with one couple failing to neuter their pet. We need to realize that once upon a time we domesticated these animals and it is now our responsibility to take care of them and make sure we dont just let them reproduce wildly till their populations are out of our control, cause when that happens the world's answer is to just put them down, which is sadly exactly what happens to millions of pets in shelters every year, because shelters dont have enough room, because there are too many! There are only so many available homes for homeless pets, so lets take care of our pet population the responsible way, right at the start, and neuter your pets! (unless your a breeder ofcourse)
