My concern is about the growing population of feral and free-roaming cats in our community.  Killing cats is not the answer!  It’s inhumane and does not solve the dilemma because more irresponsible people will continue to compound the problem as long as cats exist.  Th...

Very often when approaching the subject of Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate –Return (TNVR) for community cats with people opposing the practice, the first subject they will address is ‘disease.’  This is most often quickly followed with the word ‘rabies’ which strikes a fearful c...
