Anaheim Law said DISNEYLAND & Residents Must STARVE their BELOVED Stray CATS! The Ban was finally legally dropped but citizens are still being told by enforcement officers to starve cats!
UPDATE: The city of Anaheim finally changed the law to make it LEGAL again now to feed stray cats - but the city's officers are still telling residents they must stop feeding hungry kitties!!! We are telling the city to train their officers to allow feeding of innocent homeless and abandoned kitties! It does no good to drop the feeding ban if people are still being told to stop feeding!!
Three years ago, the City of Anaheim enacted a new code that made it illegal for residents to feed feral cats. Rather than spending their resources on humane spay/neuter programs, the city began harassing and threatening caretakers for simply feeding community cats; innocent creatures that depend on devoted feeders for their very lives. Not only did this hurt cats, it turned warmhearted people into criminals. Anaheim is home to Disneyland, which has its own famous feral cat community. Anaheim Fix Project/ OC Community Cats fought hard to get the law changed - and finally the ban was dropped. Anaheim Fix Project now works in cooperation with the city and has taken over the care, fixing and feeding of many community cat colonies that were out of control and filthy but now are under control and the cats are healthy and cared for. But some officers are still telling other people to stop feeding and Anaheim Fix Project / OC Community Cats is trying to get the city to retrain their officers.
You may send a note to the city of Anaheim asking them to retrain their officers so they are aware that it is now legal to feed stray cats:

Anaheim Fix Project is a project of the nonprofit (501c3) OC Community Cats and Healing the Strays. The project is providing spay/neuter (TNR), vet care, kitten rescue, adoptions and providing food for hundreds of homeless and abandoned stray cats and kittens of Anaheim and surrounding Orange County cities, but the project is underfunded. They are overstretched and overwhelmed. Let them know if you happen to live in Southern California and are available to volunteer or foster kitties - or any small donation helps.
