We have some community cats in our condo neighborhood (I don't really like the term feral since it freaks people out and doesn't always apply - Best Friends has started using this new term and I like it better).
Anyhow, a note was in the last newsletter asking for help for some TNR (trap neuter release). I contacted another woman named Carol, and we set a trap I borrowed from my dad. Monday morning we caught our first cat. She apparently has been pretty friendly with some of the neighbors and one woman stepped up and offered to adopt her! Chatty Cathy went to Stephanie's house last night and I got a call that said she is already adjusting very well. She had to have been a pet that lost her home. Well, now she is spayed and will be spoiled rotten.
I never thought it would be this satisfying - this is my first foray into TNR. We are going to keep at it until we catch them all.... one big tomcat, a couple more girls and some juvenile kittens.
