BLOGGERS NOTE: dont it just figger, a breeder against breeding regs. What do you think motovates her mind? Same as the Big Bank$ters who oppose regulation of their industry also......money is the motive my friends. Nothing more. Nothing less. Dont be fooled by industry greed. Mandatory spay and nueter is A GOOD THING that will not stop breeders from breeding but will force them to breed less and more responsibly. The idea is to ensure that every new-born cat or dog is WANTED and has a home waiting for it when it is ready to be weaned. Potential new owners just might have to be put on a waiting list for their new pup or kitty, and that is a bad thing, why?
