While you may insist that these outside cats are “not my cats,” you cannot simply ignore them and make them go away. Animal Control will not alleviate this problem, because they do not trap cats. If you want to limit the overpopulation problem in your neighborhood, take action and start a Trap / Neuter / Release (TNR) Program.
Trap / Neuter / Release is the only way to effectively control over population. Remember this: the cats are there for a reason. Someone abandoned them at some point. Simply moving cats from this environment will not solve the problem, as other cats will come in to take place of the cats removed. A Trap / Neuter / Release program will sterilize all the cats so that those cats will not reproduce, and those existing cats will protect their territory from new, unaltered cats.
Trap / Neuter / Release is easy, and it saves lives. For every unaltered female cat and her offspring on your street, you can count on up to 50 more kittens in the next year. And that is a lot of cats!
Please note: Although we care for community cats (strays/ferals) we do not offer medical care for any cat that is brought to us. We can offer advice on these issues only–not medical services.
