1. Cat owners should keep their cats inside or in their own yards, and not allow them to roam “at large”.

2. This one is easier than family planning. If you think it is too much of a bother to take responsibility for a cat’s whereabouts, and you cannot afford a spay or neuter fee, make a conscious choice—don’t get one.
