Santa Barbara boasts some of the nation’s most pricey real estate and famous residents. Until recently, this slice of California coastline had a dirty little secret: teeming colonies of feral cats. Cat populations have stabilized in the south county — though constant vigilance is required — thanks to one tireless volunteer. Randi Fairbrother is the founder and president of Catalyst for Cats, an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization dedicated to spaying and neutering Santa Barbara’s feral and abandoned cats and to socializing and finding homes for rescue kittens.

She doesn't care,she wants them dead.I called and left a message with the human resources writer, but I'd like to talk to SUSAN LOGAN PPLLEEAASSEE!We are having to treat some male cats like animals.They had us close up around the house so they couldn't get under the house and won't allow us to feed them at all. T hey are wanting them dead and we just can't be mean to them.Some have been poisoned shot or just disapear.I understand the catch fix and release. We spent as much as $400.00 on one,for example and they were poisoned.Iguess I like to talk to.(much)
