Learn how to help feral cats

Saturday, March 7 - 11:00 AM


Sponsored by the Lake Monticello Wildlife Commitee, Cat Action Team board members Betsy Ballenger and Rose Lemaster will talk to residents about what to do if they have feral cats. They should be trapped (in humane traps which CAT can provide), transported to a vet clinic, neutered and vaccinated, and returned. The process is called TNR for trap/neuter/return. In addition, the tip of the left ear is removed, the universally recognized sign for anyone else coming across the cats that the cat has been neutered. Once returned, they should be given food, water and shelter. By practicing TNR, there will be no more kittens, and the cat colony will slowly age out. It is the humane way to manage a group of feral cats. If young kittens are found, they can be fostered, socialized and adopted out. Betsy and Rose will answer questions and provide hands-on demonstrations and tips on how to trap and care for feral cats.
