In the Contact Us section send comments to all kinds of people with all kinds of offers. And hackers too. Although I wrote to contact me if they have questions about cats or my site (which is about cats). So far no one has contacted me on these topics and I have had the site for two years. What do you advise me to do: delete Contact us? Thank you.

No, never delete the Contact Us page - Google considers that a required page on every site, so you'll hurt your rankings by doing that.

I would agree about the Captcha page requirement. At least that stops most bots.

Why cats do things - my top ten tips as an ebook could be the answer and build your list is one way, offer them something of value.

You may have done this already through something like aweber... I love reading about why cat do things ... like why is the stomach so senstive, why do they sit on my chest and look away from me etc..

Often the easiest method is to simply create a "contact us" page, but add a message along the lines of "the best way to contact us is to leave a comment here on our website. Alternatively, you can reach out via our social channels".

You shouldn't remove your full contact page or not have one (as it shows a lack of care towards visitors) but you don't necessarily need an actual contact form.

Hi, you can always put a Captcha on the form to stop being it abused by bots.

Also if you are providing services I would keep it.
