Fake cats are a common sight in the cities. If they are lucky, they are cared for by responsible and responsible individuals or a few associations in consultation with local veterinary surgeries, but are usually left alone, convicted of wandering and street life, which is why they often die of starvation, illness, human abuse or harm in traffic, are reported by the association Animal Friends.

- Encouraged by many cases of poisoning, drowning and other types of killing of unwanted offspring of animals, as well as with increasing awareness of the legal and ethical necessity of castration, Animal Friends Association has been working with veterans for years for the possibility of casting dogs and cats at cheaper prices or free of charge . On the occasion of the International Day of Casting of Cat Cats (27 May), veterinary ambulances responding to the invitation of Animal Friends will cast their two-cat costs at the expense of the street - they say in Animal Friends Association.

The number of veterinary surgeries with which Animal Friends cooperates increases year by year, and the number of cities in which castration is conducted at a more favorable price is increasing. Everyone who wants to help cats in the common yard or on the street but also with their own dog or cat can fill out the application form on the Animal Friends website www.prijatelji-zivotinja.hr. A program of more favorable castration is carried out for abandoned cats and dogs and animals in the process of homing. Also, the Association offers to borrow equipment for catching and transporting cats.

On average, in each litter, three to five kittens are born so an uncharted cat is born up to 18 kittens per year! These same kittens become sexually active at age six and through the next seven years the world will see 420 000 kittens! Since most abandoned cats never find a home, castration in humankind prevents their further uncontrollable reproduction and transmission of infectious diseases.

Animal reproduction control is also a legal obligation. If the guardian does not wish to take care of the unwanted baby, he or she shall bear the costs of disposing, and the penalty for non-compliance shall amount to more than 10 000.
