In San Mateo, California (next to the San Mateo bridge by the San Francisco Bay) there is a colony of homeless and feral cats. "Project Bay Cat" organizes human volunteers to neuter, vaccinate, & feed these free cats by the bay.
Details of their colony are not known, except we speculate that they honor the basic Zen philosophy of Chairman Meow. The Internal Revenue Service has no record of these cats, and we can imagine that they have recorded no losses of wealth or sleep in the current economic recession.
More about Project Bay Cat from CatChannel.com: Project Bay Cat is a collaborative effort among the Homeless Cat Network, the City of Foster City and Sequoia Audubon Society to humanely reduce the feral cat population along Foster City’s Bay Trail near San Francisco, Calif.
Since its conception in 2005, 95 percent of the more than 170 cats in the area have been spayed or neutered and vaccinated. In addition, more than 67 cats and kittens have found new homes through the program’s foster and adoption efforts.
