Washington Post TNR article
In November 2010 I went through the Cat NIPP program to TNR the cats in my feral/stray/dump/community cat colony. We trapped eight cats, one escaped; all were spayed (one) or neutered (six). Very well organized.
Regarding the comments (now up to 107). They do help me understand the other side's perspective--and formulate counterarguments if anyone approaches me in person when I feed the ten cats in the colony. Why I don't simply remove them after I TNR them.
Who are we humans to say if a feral cats life is too hard for them; by extension, should be euthanize people with MS? AIDS?
Oh, and same day, same newspaper: a National Zoo employee was charged with attempted animal cruelty; alleged to have poisoned the feral cats in her neighborhood so more birds can live.
