1. What are Community Cats?

A community cat is one that lives outdoors and is either free roaming, stray, and/or feral. Although, some community cats may tolerate some human contact, most are very fearful and cannot be adopted. Community cats often live in groups, and these groups are called a cat colony. Community cats and cat colonies take refuge wherever there is a food source.

 

 

 

2. What is TNR?

Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) is a method for managing community cats. With TNR, stray and feral cats are humanely trapped, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, ear-tipped, and then returned to the outdoor location where they were living. Trap-neuter-return is a humane, non-lethal alternative to the trap-and-kill method of controlling cat populations.

 

 

 

3. What is the Goal of TNR?

In the long term, TNR lowers the numbers of cats in the community more effectively than trap-and-kill. Stopping the breeding is more effective than the traditional trap-and-kill method in lowering the numbers of cats in a community long-term.

 

 

 

4. What is an ear tip?

An ear tip is a universal symbol that a cat is spayed or neutered. A small amount (1/4 inch) is removed from the tip of the left ear in a straight line cut. Ear tips are usually visible from a distance, making it easy for caretakers, trappers and animal control personnel to immediately identify a cat as spayed or neutered. Therefore, it is easy to tell which cats in a colony still need to be trapped, and which ones are already taken care of!
