I need advice about colony asap, pleeease!
I now have 33 cats, and the colony keeps growing. I hear from neighbors that cats are coming from everywhere because they have it so good where I feed (plenty of food, water, attention, shelter, other cats' company, frequent treats, a few blankets, I defend them from dogs and hostile people). A cat moved here with all her kittens even though she was being fed (on and off, dog's kibble!) by neighbors somewhere else!
I put about 60grs per cat, which is 2kgs a day, 60kgs a month, about 3.5 bags. I've asked for help and looks like I'll be getting 2 bags (36 kgs.) kibble a month (from the 2 people who asked me to take care of the colony a couple months back).
When a new cat comes, I go out of my way to prevent the others from chasing him/her off. Should I let them chase the newcomers off?
I'm waiting for a new TNR session with the municipality - the previous one yielded no results. The cats were hungry, but seemingly not enough to risk going into the cage.
All advice will be very welcome!
