Veterinarian Technician June 2008 (Vol 29, No 6)

Consider This . . .

    Your neighbor, who is unfriendly and known to be a drug user, owns an unvaccinated intact male cat that spends most of its time outdoors. The owner doesn't look after the cat, and the cat behaves as though it were feral. During the night, it is frequently heard vocalizing, and it sprays on your property. If you had the resources to capture your neighbor's cat and have it neutered without your neighbor knowing, would you? What other approaches might you take in this situation?
