Catnip Nation (2021) Chain Film Festival 2021

 This is a film about advocates for feral cats in Augusta Kansas, Oceanside New York and Seaside Heights New Jersey who are having trouble with authorities. The local authorities do not want them to care for the animals and would prefer to then to go to shelters where almost certainly they will be killed.

This film clearly explains how the advocates are tying to manage the populations and how they aren't creating the colonies but managing them. The local authorities seem to think that the advocates are the ones creating the problem, but the reality is that most of the cats are the result of people dropping off their cats far from home when they tire of them. The advocates are getting the animals neutered so they won't reproduce.

If you love animals this film will piss you off. You won't believe how many people would rather kill the cats and punish the humans. 

If the film has any problem with the film its that some of the people profiled can be annoying. More than once I told them to shut up. At the same time the importance of this film makes it worth a look. 

CATNIP NATION is playing now virtually at the Chain Film Festival and in person Tue, Aug 24th, 7:00 PM @ Chain Studio Theatre. For tickets and more information go here.
