Given the situation, she decided to take the subject head on. Vanessa, a resident of Bourron-Marlotte (Seine-et-Marne) decided to tackle the problem of the many stray cats qThey have taken up residence near the buildings on rue de Samois. A trapping operation was carried out on Friday, October 21, near the residence. According to her, more than 25 cats are in medical wandering, health and food. Another problem: they reproduce.


“Originally, I posted a message on the Bourron Solidarity Facebook page,” she recalls. Her publication is emulated and she will notably be supported by a friend who carries out dog rescues. To finance her project, she then launched a kitty. “Residents and traders have mobilized so that we can carry out a trapping operation”, she continues.

An operation that involves luring animals into a cage and then sterilizing them. “Thanks to donations and the partnership with two veterinarians, we bring the cats for a complete examination and then consider sterilization,” explains Vanessa, who then hopes to be able to place them and offer them a better life.

Contacted, Victor Valente, the mayor of Bourron-Marlotte, who was present on the day of the operation, confirms. ” It’s a localized problem because people feed cats and it attracts them, he points out. We will try to support the initiative as well as possible, I have already contacted a veterinarian in Fontainebleau. »

For her part, Vanessa will continue her momentum, but she also wants to raise awareness. “The inhabitants must be alerted to the responsibilities that come with taking an animal,” she insists. We have to take care of it on a daily basis because here, it has consequences for everyone. » With winter approaching, she renews her call for solidarity, in order to continue the operations, even if she remains aware « that not all the cats can be taken care of. »
