Wild Boars

So it looks like in Singapore there is friction when it comes to cats - whereas in Berlin, they also have wild boars . As with cats, shooting them is not bringing the population down - so there must be another way to handle the problem, more effectively AND more humanely.

Dogs and jealousy

Here's a very interesting article about dogs and their sense of jealousy (and fair play). It probably won't surprise any of you who have cats and dogs at all though and I am pretty sure these results would replicate in cats.

Funding for pet contraceptives

When I mentioned to some friends of mine who are scientists that there are no contraceptives available for cats, they were very surprised. As Simian who sent me this mentioned, it might very well be due to lack of funding and incentive as a result. Fortunately now there is someone who is offering a grant to encourage pet contraception. Whatever works to reduce overpopulation!
