The Blanco County Cat Coalition has been busy so far in 2008. They have been Trapping, Neutering and Returning cats in a program known as TNR. TNR is a proven procedure in which entire colonies of stray and feral cats are humanely trapped, then evaluated, vaccinated, and spayed/neutered by veterinarians. Kittens and tame cats are adopted into homes. Adult cats too wild to be adopted are returned to live out their lives under the watchful care of sympathetic neighborhood volunteers.
During the month of January, 2008, 37 cats in Blanco County were Trapped, Neutered and Returned under this program.
During the month of February, 2008, 27 cats in Blanco County were Trapped, Neutered and Returned under this program.
During the month of March, 2008, 27 cats in Blanco County were Trapped, Neutered and Returned under this program.
TNR works. The breeding stops. 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. Ongoing care creates a safety net for the cats and the community.
