I'm wondering if a outreach school/ect education program should be set up (in a warm climate NOT here in MN- unless heated) where male kittens are taken and trained to live outside in kennels then instead of neutered given vesecimoys,tubes are cut- they become tomcats- with all the resulting issues, but they cannot procreate- and taken to schools/community/groups/ect and shown to people to understand why its a bad idea to not spay/neuter cats. Maybe a female in heat is bred on sight( before being spayed, or maybe the cat has the female version of a vacec), two leashed toms, controlled by handlers are put in with her... before the fighting starts/gets too ugly they are removed to show how toms contract diseases, fight. Kids/the people then pick which one to breed, it happens and afterwards they talk about pet overpopulation and then everyone goes to a freezer where bags of euthanized pets are or if this is too much for the younger grades/ect just see photos, people are allowed to look at them, then they leave..

After a few years of this lifestyle, going to various places the cats are neutered/kept on the premeses or re homed and it happens over and over with another batch of kittens, none of the cats are bred, its purely to show the drawbacks to toms/queens as domestic pets and to encourage people to fix their cats.
