FERAL CATS AND
TRAP, NEUTER AND RETURN
TNR is a program that traps feral cats, vaccinates, sterilizes and releases them back to the area in which they were trapped. This is a proven way to reduce the feral cat population. Ideally there should be one or more persons willing to provide food or water for a feral cat colony daily. If shelter is not available, inexpensive shelters can be constructed. This program has been proven to stabilize feral cat populations and then reduce them by preventing the birth of kittens. Cats that have been trapped and altered in a TNR program have their left ear tip removed so they can be identified if trapped again. Releasing them back to their original home territory discourages other feral cats from moving in. Alley Cat Allies has lots of information on TNR and ear tipping. Recently CAAT has neutered and spayed 18 feral cats living across from the Williamsburg Post Office. Eight females and 10 males were done. We need assistance to clean up goatheads on the property if anyone is interested. We have the permission of the property owner to continue feeding there. He would appreciate any assistance to clean up the property as he is disabled following a stroke.
