The Blanco County Cat Coalition is out there Trapping, Neutering and Returning cats in a program known worldwide as TNR. TNR is a comprehensive plan where entire feral colonies are humanely trapped, then evaluated, vaccinated and neutered by veterinarians. Kittens and cats that are tame enough to be adopted are placed in good homes. Adult cats are returned to their familiar habitat to live out their lives under the watchful care of sympathetic neighborhood volunteers.
During the first six months of 2009, 136 cats in Blanco County were Trapped, Neutered and Returned under this program.
During the first six months of 2009, 8 cats in Blanco County were adopted and placed in good homes. The Blanco County Cat Coalition currently has several cats and kittens available for adoption.
TNR works. Cat populations are gradually reduced. Nuisance behaviors associated with breeding, such as the yowling of females or the spraying of toms, are virtually eliminated. Disease and malnutrition are greatly reduced. The cats live healthy, safe, and peaceful lives in their territories.
The Blanco County Cat Coalition has established a website at: www.BlancoCountyCat.org Look there to see the cats and kittens currently available for adoption and the monthly progress report for Trap-Neuter-Return.
