Facts About TNR (trap/neuter/return)
What is a Feral Cat ?
A feral cat is one that has little or no human contact, is a stray or has been abandoned and has reverted to the wild. Feral cats avoid human contact. Adult feral cats usually cannot be socialized and are most content living outside. Feral kittens up to ten weeks of age, can often be tamed.
What is TNR ? Why TNR ?
Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR) is an effective way to control feral colonies. Feral cats are found in every community. When cats are not sterilized they reproduce. Cats and their offspring bond together in groups called colonies. The colonies stay where there is a food source. People care for colonies and provide food, water, and shelter. Such people are called “Caretakers”.
To manage colonies, Trap/Neuter/Return is the only solution. TNR is humane and painless. Cats will no longer reproduce and the colony is manageable.
TNR is the only chance that feral cats have to live a safe and healthy life. TNR requires commitment.
