This is Buttercup/Mango/Mimi:
I found this sweetie pie when I was walking to work one morning. Determined to keep her if I saw her in the afternoon, I knocked on the house where she was dozing, and when the person who answered gave me the go ahead, I promptly took her home.
The Mister was not amused.
Neither were Mittens and Midnight.
The house became a mixture of sueals (from the kids), exaggerated sighs (from the Mister) and hisses (from the cats).
Then Mimi gave the gift that keeps on giving:
a dose of fleas.
Luckily, I found someone who was willing to rescue Mimi, but that led me to think about the stray cats in the neighborhood.

Not too many people *I* know.
So while trap, neuter, relaease may seem like a solution, it can be merely a band-aid on a bigger storm to come.
For your pleasure:
