It has been a cold, long and harsh winter for the strays in our neighborhood. I do what I can to supply food and shelter for them. I am sad when one of them disappears and I wonder if he perished or is off creating new life to worry about.

This is a wonderful agency who traps, spays/nueters and releases. I will be calling for assistance. I hope the public sees this and does the same.

Thanks for the help last year with the kitten I found who was near death. She was later adopted at a Kitty Connection event. I hope she is happy in her new home.

When you say releases do you mean they put them back on the streets? That would not be a good idea.

Perhaps you would be willing to take in a ferril cat who has been neutered, and then ask a few thousand of your friends to do the same. At the very least, this is done to prevent more ferril cats from being reproduced. Just trying o make a point, at the risk of seeming sarcastic. I am sorry.

I do not work for any agency but know a lot about the process. It is the humane thing to do since these are wild cats we are talking about and they know of no other way of life. Those who are adoptable are usually put into the shelter or are fostered until adoption. They have a web site with photos and some info about each cat.

It is more involved than you know. They are also tested for potentially contagious, horrible diseases, treated for fleas and other parasites too.

Hope you find this helpful.
