To humanely lower the feral/stray cat population, reduce the chances of disease being spread to humans and other animals and educate citizens about properly caring for their own pet cats and/or caring for feral cats to include humanely trapping and making available to the public the resources to have these cats fixed and keep them up to date on vaccinations at a low cost. The proposed ordinanace makes all of this possible with no costs being incurred by the city or it's tax paying citizens. The feral cat communities will be cared for and maintained by volunteers.

      I have just read that it is now against the law in Copperas Cove to FEED a stray cat . How cold these people are and I hope that one day they are hungry and people refuse to feed them. It is the same inhumanity. Try to show some education and common sense and get rid of this "law."

      TNR is a humane way of letting the animals finish out their lives. It helps to decrease the growing stray/feral population and provides relief to the diseases that can float around through colonies. It's the best, most humane way of taking care of the animals that have been left behind to fend for themselves and procreate in the community.

      Humans MUST show compassion for all living things. We must teach it to our children and to adults who do not practice it. There are 3 vacant homes on my block of 6. I used to sit in the backyard at dusk and see rodents run from vacant house to vacant house - this is NOT a poor part of town. I have encouraged the stray cats to stay in an effort to keep the rodent problem at a minimum. It has WORKED. Cities that practice feral kill have been making the news with their rat problems.

      I follow TNR efforts around the country and applaud it as the most effective and humane way to manage feral cat populations.
