Allowing cats to roam shortens their lifespan

Allowing cats to roam freely leads to death. To all of you barn cat owners who allow your cats to roam freely about the neighborhood, that practice usually results in death.

One such incident occurred when a kitten fell asleep under the hood of my truck. This poor baby died a gruesome death.

Be responsible. Get them spayed or neutered. And above all, watch them.
