The Problem

My neighborhood is set back into a slightly wooded area. In the woods, many feral and stray cats roam. In order to keep the population under control and prevent the obnoxious fighting and mating of cats on the loose, I TNR the cats. Any young kittens under 6 weeks of age that can still be socialized are fostered at my house. I get them spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed and flea treated at the shelter I volunteer for and put them up for adoption. I have rehomed many kittens, a cat, and adopted 6 myself (including a pregnant one). It's a great way to keep unwanted litters of kittens from being injured, killed or taken to the shelter.

Plan of Action

It started when I got a flyer on feral cats from one of the shelters I later started to volunteer for. Before that, I had no idea what to do with all the cats that were taking over the neighborhood. So, my mom went out and bought a humane trap. We started with getting 2 cats fixed. Then alot more litters of kittens were born. I didn't know what to do. I eventually stepped up and started taking in the kittens and just trapping as many cats as I could. The friendly cats were put up for adoption. The feral ones were TNR'd and put back outside.
