While Australia declares war on cats with plans to kill 2 million cats in the next two years — a violent campaign that will not accomplish its aims — there are legions of people in the United States trapping, neutering and releasing feral cats to ensure they will not proliferate.
The humane way, as usual, is the effective way.
Entire colonies of cats have been eradicated with TNR, in Seattle’s University District and elsewhere.
For those interested in helping, the Community Cat Coalition of Washington is holding a free class in TNR from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 6, at the Snohomish Library in lovely Snohomish, WA.
A potluck afterward will introduce newly trained trappers to mentors. If enough of us show up, maybe it can be a largely vegan potluck!
