150 Cats Fly Florida To Massachusetts

August 10, 2022

This past week, 150 cats were flown from Florida to Massachusetts.

The move was performed by the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals-Angell Animal Medical Center, a nonprofit organization.

The reason?

Florida has a lot of stray cats, and Massachusetts is one of the highest cat-owning states in the country. 

“The warm climate there means optimal breeding seasons for outdoor cats, so Florida’s cat population is much higher than Massachusetts,” said Mike Keiley, director of adoption centers and programs,  according to the Fall River Herald News.

The outdoor cat population in Florida has put a strain on the state, including harming wildlife and amounting to a nuisance. 

Keiley hopes that more of these flights happen in the future.

“We know that Massachusetts residents love cats, and we need those adopters now more than ever,” Kelley said, according to the Fall River Herald News.

 

New to NewBostonPost?  Conservative media is hard to find in Massachusetts.  But you’ve found it.  Now dip your toe in the water for two bucks — $2 for two months.  And join the real revolution.
