The ONLY proven method of getting a cat over population under control is TNR: Trap them, get them neutered and return them to where trapped and care for them. The misinformation on birds killing all the birds everywhere is laughable. Yes they hunt but the one responsible for ALL declines in populations are HUMANS and all of our toxic impact on the environment. Some day the bird people will work with the cat people and we'll solve this. Until then we will fight for the lives of our species and solve nothing. Thanks.Nov 26, 2010
It's a shame that Cactus Cats didn't show you how to properly implement TNR: trap all the cats, get them fixed/neutered, return them to where trapped and care for them. Now that you have taken the kittens, the mother cat will come back into season and in 65 days you'll have kittens all over again. It's great that you are socializing the kittens but that's only a small part of keeping the community cat population under control.
Lots of people feel just trap and remove them. This solves nothing and other cats will just come in and fill the now open territory and start the breeding all over again. We call trap and remove "trap and kill" because these feral cats are not adoptable and are killed at shelters.
Please fix all the cats in your yard and you'll truly help the cats. thanks. www.alleycat.org
