Betty Bridge is a self-confessed cat lover, but even her patience can wear thin when it comes to irresponsible pet owners across the Gladstone region.
The Friends of RSPCA Gladstone cat foster care co-ordinator has seen hundreds of cats and kittens come and go before her eyes.

After taking several months to decrease their cat numbers through adoptions, Friends of RSPCA Gladstone is on the cusp of facing yet another cat breeding season in coming months.
