I support this petition. The desexing solution is far more humane, not to mention could create temporary or permanent veterinary jobs.

Cat loving people find the mere presence of cats to be a healing one in psychological terms, or even just on the level of a simple appreciation of their physical attributes.

Considering how much loneliness, post traumatic stress, and tension there is for humans in modern life why doesn't the council work with the people of Wellington city alongside the SPCA to formulate a strategy to get more stray cats into new homes even on a temporary basis? They could have a "cat library" even, where cats are loaned under the proviso of a terms of service or contract signed for the care of them to pre-agreed standards.

Look at the success of the "Cats in Cafes" movement around the world. It is an example of the use of pets to help humans relax. This model could be applied to other types of animals as well.

Not everyone is a dog lover despite social media 'trending'.

Because every animal has rights but they do not have a voice. Cats cause much less damage than humans-why aren't we restricting ourselves as a species?

Humans cause more damage to this earth, wipe out more species than any other living creatures. Humans are the root of the problem.
