I figure that if you have gone to the trouble to trap a cat, you
probably should (properly!) humanely euthanise it. I think it is less
cruel than turning it loose. I am expecting to be told off for saying
so. But there are issues with any course of action, if you choose not
to decide, you still have made a choice. I love cats. I wish life
wasn't so hard on them. Certainly, there is rarely a good reason not to
spay/neuter your own animal.
