I have been monitoring a feral colony established in 2003 by a rather popular feral female cat who took up residency in our community. Seeing a dilemma acerbating that was directly proportional to the number of litters being produced, we sought the help and guidance of the newly formed Payson Friends of Ferals.
With encouragement and instructions on the best methods for trapping, then having the animals spayed, neutered and inoculated and returning them to their caregivers, we found a viable solution. It was a "win-win situation."
No more kittens, no more tom cats, and no more fighting for territories.
If you need a viable alternative to feral cats, call Payson Friends of Ferals at 468-1143 or 474-1836.
