Because trapping and killing 300 cats is not humane and does not work. Trap-neuter-return, if done right, has proven to work time and time again and that is why it is becoming so popular. Besides trapping and killing these cats will cost the city and the taxpayers lost of money.

      They stopped trapping and we may have to pull some cats to make it easier to manage the cats there. But we will be able to continue TNR. Go to Kathy's Kitties FB page to get more updates.

      I've adopted a cat from one of the prisons...they are delightful creatures and caring for them a worthwhile activity for offenders.

      Please do not kill the cats. TNR programs work. I have a TNR program so I can vouch for this. This is the humane thing to do, along with relocation of cats as much as possible to homes. Please reconsider, and do the right thing.
