In the Jan. 17-23 edition, the Flushing Times printed an editorial expressing concern about the missing cats in the Astoria area as well as pointing out that the spaying and/or neutering of both outdoor stray cats as well as indoor cats that are allowed outside would go a long way toward solving the feral cat problem.
I would like to remind your readers that The Worthy Pause, a volunteer-run, donor-supported, independent, animal charity thrift shop, at 40-08 Corporal Kennedy St. in Bayside, carries low-cost spay/neuter certificates available for purchase.
We also have humane traps, which we loan out for a refundable deposit, to those homeowners wishing to trap the ferals in their yards so they may be spayed or neutered and receive their rabies shot.
If your readers are interested in either purchasing the certificates or borrowing a humane trap, they should call 718-279-8191.
