EWEB is Eugene (Oregon) Water and Electric Board. As of today, October 19th, the four remaining feral cats on EWEB's Roosevelt site have been without the food that they have come to depend on for nearly a month. Additionally, EWEB refuse to let these four cats be humanely trapped and relocated, preferring instead for the cats to relocate themselves due to starvation. This of course, does not work, and the birds EWEB professes to want to protect by starving these cats are in more danger from hungry cats; who are unaltered and will breed. In a very short time, EWEB will find themselves awash in kittens, tom cats etc. for which they have no plan.
We want EWEB to start feeding the cats again, and let them be humanely trapped and removed so they can be altered and placed in a safe, managed colony. EWEB has stated officially there are no cats on their 14 acre sight which of course is not true. Current employees have seen the four cats in question recently. Feral cats lived on that property before EWEB built the building, and they are there now, and always will be.

Resume feeding the cats at the Roosevelt site and let them be humanely trapped and removed. It is short-sighted to take so called "advice" from the Audubon Society, who are far from experts about feral cats.
It is ludicrous to not allow people to humanely trap and relocate them, as you are attempting to do the same thing by starving them out. They will not relocate themselves, and in fact will sicken, breed and die. This is very inconsiderate to your neighbors and the birds you profess you want to protect, and not at all responsible since these four cats are currently unaltered.
We the undersigned pledge to spread the word about EWEB's cruelty to innocent animals that are so unfortunate to live on their property.
EWEB DO THE RIGHT THING!
