The SPCA concern for the cat population at Kaboodle brought many volunteers to help restore health to the hundreds. An observer may admire these manifestations of sympathy and support for animals – until reading the projected costs of thousands of dollars for net care. I wonder how much good could have been done with that care and cash applied to people in Madison County. How many children’s teeth could have the cavities filled? How many needing braces for future dental health care could have been helped?
Maybe I have a jaundiced view by growing up here without dental care until after World War II, when an Army dentist settled in Quitman, Ga. The “great cat cure” is a mis-use of money by mis-guided people. Where was the SPCA when a kind-hearted man was helping helpless animals?
