Reducing the health risks to residents and tourists in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico

Toxoplasmosis Gondi presence on Isla Cuale and in Rio Cuale  is contaminating it's soil and fresh water basin downstream, running into Pacific Ocean beaches of Puerto Vallarta and vicinity continuously.

Efforts have failed to tag/spay/nueter systematically cats on Isla Cuale  to determine which have been spayed/nuetered, as many feral cats there remain unmarked.

Trap nueter return (TNR) procedures are being ignored. Uncontained cats gathered from both Jalicso and rabies present Nariyat are removed from their home area and not returned.

  Nueter/spay clinics and cat groups are solely responsible for gathering these innocent cats on Isla Cuale, some spayed, some not.

Toxoplasmosis is only one of many diseases derived from feral cats (200-300) colonized over the last twenty years on Isle Cuale.  "Cat Ladies" are  upsetting the ecology of the island, and creating health risks to unknowing tourists, and Mexican families.

Particularly susceptible to toxoplasmosis are the one in seven people that are immune compromised, including those with HIV/AIDS.

 Toxoplasmosis remains the number one cause of death for HIV/AIDS patients.

Puerto Vallarta Government is committed Gay Friendly and is a primary destination for tourists that needs your support to comply with Center of Disease Control, World Health Organization and ONEHealth.  Mexico is obliged to follow their guidelines to adhere to, and  is take aggressive action to correct.  

Puerto Vallarta Government needs your help and backing to prioritize the safe and humane removal of this cat population on Isla Cuale so that Mother Nature can cleanse the contamination of the soil, water run off and fresh water catch basin where hundreds swim daily before it adversely affects the marine life in Banderas Bay.

Cat feses is buried by the cat and causing this parasite to multiply to dangerous levels which survives best in tropical areas such as PV.  Gardeners rake over the buried fesis', raising dust and increasing the inhalation dangers without protective gloves or face mask.

Also endangered are pregnant women that contact toxoplasmosis while pregnant, causing still births, and deformities in the child.

Toxoplasmosis is also responsible for mental illness, neurological disorders, rage syndrome, blindness and last and sadly ironic is "Crazy Cat Lady Syndrome".  The ones that in fact started this self fulfilling issue.

Knowingly feeding and adopting out these feral cats to unsuspecting families is totally against regulations set which Puerto Vallarta is obligated to follow.

ONEHealth guidelines state never to adopt a stray cat, especially a kitten for reasons listed above.

These cats are the victims here, and should never have been gathered in such an ecologically vulnerable location, on a small city island that was prior called Children's Island.

Gardeners and people working and entering the government land of Isla Cuale are wearing no protective clothing, as toxoplasmosis is spread  by inhalation and/or indigestion .

Public awareness endangering all warm blooded animals including humans needs to be continued.

The feral cat population has destroyed the ecological balance to Isla Cuale.   Cats are the number one killer of birds, and are on top of the food chain on Isle Cuale.  Isla Cuale is now environmentally dead.

Toxoplasmosis Gondi can be considered a bio-terrorist agent when used knowingly.

Toxoplasmosis Gondi is the single cell organism which is mentioned here, as it was independently tested above and below Isla Cuale, in the waters of Rio Cuale, showing notably higher readings downstream.

 Twenty other diseases are attributed to cats and 70% of human diseases come from animals.

Testing in rivers and beaches where humans recreationally swim and bathe should be done on a regular basis.

The number of uncontained, unleashed cats and dogs magnifies the problem, on streets and beaches making all areas unsafe for an unsuspecting tourist or resident of our beautiful city.

 Infected dogs are also carriers with the over population of these gathered cats, although toxoplasmosis originates with only felines as a hunting mechanism.   

Pets that use our beaches are spreading the toxoplasmosis into a hospitable environment, waiting for a visitor to come to play in the sand through contact with a cats urine.

Suspicious feeding of street animals has proven to be poison or a accelerator encouraging dogs and cats to the inner city, and ultimately deficate on our sidewalks and public areas.

I ask you to sign the petition after referencing the below organizations regarding toxoplasmosis.

Again, the City of Puerto Vallarta and the newly formed "Green Police" are on side and needs support to be able to prioritize and enforce change!

I am more than happy to send you direct links to specific questions regarding all factual information from the resources below that support this petition.
