Last nite I was coming home and I always stop by this school, where I once met the most affectionate homeless cat, or so I thought he was homeless. Usually a lot of cats are on the grounds, so I stop by to say hi.
A woman was there. Turns out she feeds at least 12 feral cats PLUS a litter of kittens every nite, like clockwork. She has been doing it for 4 years. Fabulous!
Offered to help, and of course I will. But the bigger problem is: some of the females are spayed and the males aren't fixed. So of course, when they get horny, whatever you call it, they find new females and the cycle continues.
I don't know how to begin to trap feral cats, and they have her trust, not mine. I know in England there is an agency that supports spay/neutering through Europe, but I only know of the "Cat Santuary" in Roma that works with them.
I think that's the key to breaking this cycle; have them all fixed. But I'm a little overwhelmed with my new project. Ideas?
