What Dustin Burt and probably a lot of other homeowners do not understand is it is not ‘trap and release’ in neighborhoods so the cats can continue to multiply; it is ‘trap, neuter and release’ which will not increase the cat population.
Releasing altered cats in neighborhoods will help to keep the rat and mouse population down as well as other small ‘varmints.’
I’ve never in my 71 years seen a cat kill or eat a squirrel, a frog or a lizard.
I would think some of the neighborhoods would appreciate the mouse and rat population diminished by altered felines.
In fact, I would love to see some altered cats in my neighborhood to control the rats and mice in the fields and the barn/garage.
