A .22 would work too

In case you hadn't heard, Monday is "National Feral Cat Day."

Just so you can appreciate unbridled breeding of a predator species.

And- since it's like a Greenie thing, it's naturally not the entire truth...

National Feral Cat Day on Monday marks the beginning of what Molina and other feral cat advocates hope will be a year filled with public education and aggressive animal sterilization.

Every city and town in Flagler County proclaimed the national day this year. The proclamations are meant to encourage communities to learn about trapping, sterilizing and then releasing feral cats to control populations.


Molina hopes to raise money to open a permanent spaying and neutering clinic in Flagler County and to hold mobile clinics throughout the area.

She said there are at least 1,000 stray and feral cats in Flagler County, and in such a fastest-growing county the colonies may also grow.

And where there's a feral colony, dumped strays may follow.

The difference between a feral cat and a stray is that a feral cat hasn't had the human socialization of a pet. Strays may let you walk up to them and pet them, Molina said, but ferals never will.
Like I said.... a .22 is alot faster and cheaper.
But lets go on...

While Wilson would support a trapping and neutering policy for population control, leaving cats outdoors to hunt concerns her. She said she preferred releasing cats into an enclosed setting, and she knew a woman who used an enclosed atrium-like facility for four feral cats.

Molina said hunting is often brought up by bird advocates, but she feels diminishing bird populations are a result of development, not territorial cats that leave a scent.
Ummmmmm, lady- cat's don't 'scent' where they hunt.

She said the society gets flack for not trapping feral cats fast enough and the biggest problem with ferals is that they're in places where they're not wanted, like next to stores and restaurants. She said by state law, colony caretakers are required to recapture and revaccinate feral cats. Some do it once every year or three years, she said, and some caregivers eventually abandon the colonies.
Like I said,,,22 shorts.
