How to Help Feral Cats in Your Neighborhood
Tacoma Public Library, Olympic Room, 1102 Tacoma Ave. S., Tacoma
Come hear a talk by the founder of FCAT (Feral Cat Assistance & Trapping), a network of local volunteers that go out to houses and neighborhoods where feral and/or stray cats are gathering, humanely trap feral cats, evaluate what medical care is necessary, and gets them spayed or neutered. After their surgeries and recovery, they are returned to their original location. When possible, tame cats and kittens are put into foster care with local rescues/shelters to find them forever homes. Learn about the connection between tame cats and feral cats; why there’s a narrow window of opportunity to rescue kittens born in the wild before they’re too old to tame; the resources available for low/no-cost spay/neuter for your pets; who to call if you see stray/feral cats, or are feeding them already and want to ensure their health and safety; how to set and monitor a humane trap to assist in the TNR process; what exactly is TNR (trap/neuter/return) and why you should care.
