newbie

hi there,
I am required to post on this before I post on the other parts of the site. I live in Los Angeles and take care of a feral colony of about 10 cats (the number keeps on going up). Working on TNR with these guys. Need a few suggestions thats why I joined the group. Thanks

Welcome. There are lots of members who care for feral colonies. I'm sure they can offer lots of suggestions.

Hi and welcome to the Forum! As Krissy said, we have many members with feral colonies. I hope you get the information you're looking for.

I know neutering changes certain behaviors for dogs, but what does it do to cats?
I just got a kitten and have no knowledge on cats.

I'm not in TNR but I imagine some people here will be able to give suggestions. Maybe you can tell us what you're having problems with first so members will know where to begin?

I thought TNR stood for both Trap-Neuter-Release and Trap-Neuter-Return ... like, they're synonyms. I've always thought of it as "Trap Neuter Release", it has a better ring to it somehow.
