Lourdas – They steal and sell kittens!

It is alleged that foreigners assisted by nationals steal and sell stray little kittens.

The fact is that in Lourdata there are many stray cats, which usually give birth twice a year, adding to the cat population several kittens, which after a while disappear. Where do they go? The most common reason is rumors of some being annoyed or just bad. It is well known that anyone who does not love animals and flowers has a bad heart.

Recently, it was reported by a friendly villager that it was perceived by a group of aliens to photograph stray kittens in the area around the village’s plane tree, and soon afterwards disappear. Another complained that someone emptied a sack of kittens into another village.

I don’t know if the complaints are true, but the fact is that cats and kittens often disappear.

Stray kittens and puppies, it’s not your fault … stray. Nature follows, and we humans must give human solutions, not by animalistic instincts, such as killing animals and torturing animals.

There are laws. It is enough to apply them. By law, municipalities have the responsibility of collecting, caring for special areas, and sterilizing stray dogs and cats.

Outside of the municipalities that are primarily responsible for stray animals, there are animal organizations and associations that do a great job.

The basic requirement of the Dominant Cats and Dogs Act is to be neutered and recorded electronically, otherwise if one chooses not to neuter their animal, they will be required to pay an annual fee of 100 euros.

Also, if an animal is used in an open-air public exhibition for the purpose of obtaining economic benefit, in the event of theft and sale, in accordance with section 12 (2a) of the Act, a fine of EUR 5,000 shall be imposed on each animal.

In any case, something stinks here and not just car kittens. The frequent and sudden disappearance of animals raises questions that need to be answered. Where do the missing kittens go? A question waiting for the kind and friendly people to answer.
