Feral Cat Options

CE - Capture/Exterminate Not only is this inhumane, it doesn't work at any rate. A "vacuum effect" is all that will create, vacuuming outside ferals into a territory already great for food, shelter and to repopulate. Within a few months the very same problem you'll have to face. CR - Capture/Relocate Again, the "vacuum effect" is all that will create. Outside ferals will move in after the others relocate. Relocated ferals often live harsher lives before dying a harsh fate. It doesn't work, and again is very inhumane at any rate. TNR - Trap/Neuter/Return The most humane and most effective solution, for maintaining and controlling feral cat overpopulation. A surgically fixed and healthy feral cat colony, is beneficial to any and every human community. They'll keep outside intact feral cats out of "their" territory. Fights for mating rites will greatly decrease, no more unwanted litters of kittens being born regularly, all while keeping our community vermin free. TNR feral cats provide a service for our community, and in return all they ask from anybody, is that we make their lives as comfortable as can possibly be. There Is Only One true feral cat option.

Yes! Even in the woods, where they are desperately needed, it might just be a great idea. It is a perfect solution for city dwelling. Excellent poem.
