^ This. The litter Apollo came from was found as newborns, most of them dead. Apollo and his sister made it. I had him at two days old. Took care of him round the clock every two hours for almost a month. Then we were able to go down to every four hours round the clock. He's alive and well at two years now. I just took in a 3.5 week old kitten (she's about six weeks now) after someone found her and couldn't keep her. She was destined for the shelter, but since our clinic works with a rescue and adopts out cats, I offered to foster her if she could be adopted out when she's older. And add me to the group that would rather see a kitten humanely euthanized than grow up to be feral and/or die from exposure. Yes, a cat can survive in the wild, and yes, it is a life (and not always a horrible life)...but as feral animals they are pests, plain and simple.
