Finland, a nation of 5.5 million, has a cat in every seventh household, totaling almost 600,000 cats in 360,000 households. Unfortunately, many people are abandoning their cats without getting them spayed or neutered. That means Finland has to deal with a growing population of feral cats.

Many feral cats perish in Finland’s harsh winter but even those that survive, they cannot adopt to home life so many feral cats wind up getting put down. So if you live in Finland, take care of your cat. If you can’t take care of it, find the cat a new home. Your cat will thank you for your efforts.
