Keep your spayed-neutered, vaccinated & ear-tipped feral cats within a safe, spacious, enclosed area for four weeks. – a clear, habitual message to your feral cats that this is their territory to explore & enjoy. Feed & provide your cats with fresh water daily. Continue providing food & water to your feral cats after you release them into their new, outdoor territory. Keep them healthy & actively catching unwanted rodents. Scatter your feral cats’ litter-box droppings & urine around the general vicinity outside of their enclosed area. To remind your rodent-removers to stay & work for you permanently.
www.CommonSenseForCats.com explains the massive failure of catch & kill, introduces our innovative approach of on-the-ground activism to increase Trap-Neuter-Return, and debunks the misinformation that plagues nearly every media story about outdoor cats.

Subject: Need help with some cats Ma’am, I live in a high rise apartment building in San Antonio Texas. We have a fairly large group of feral cats who live in the garage and eat from the dumpsters. They have kittens who stop nursing before they are big enough to jump into the dumpsters to get food. Consequently, they starve to death.
My wife and I have been putting food out for them for several years now. A few months ago, the property manager asked us to stop feeding the cats in the garage area because they were damaging cars and getting hurt there. So we started feeding them in the woods behind the property. Now the manager has asked us to stop feeding them all together. She says this is private property and that us feeding them is causing her lots of problems.
We have tried to educate her on this subject and have presented her with the facts about TNR. But she says she is not going to pay anything to have the cats neutered. I have explained to her that allowing the kittens to starve is not going to solve her problem, but so far, she refuses to see this.
Do you have any suggestions as to how we might get help with these cats? We certainly can’t afford to pay for neutering out of our own pockets. We can barely afford food for them as it is.
