Cat Fact

The oldest known pet cat was found in a 9,500-year-old grave on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. This grave predates early Egyptian art depicting cats by 4,000 years or more

Trap-neuter-return (TNR) is a program through which free-roaming community cats (not belonging to particular humans) are humanely trapped, sterilised and medically treated, then returned to the outdoor locations where they were found.

TNR is endorsed by the Royal Society for  the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals  ( RSPCA)  as “the most humane, effective and financially sustainable strategy for controlling free-roaming cat populations” and “the only proven humane and effective method to manage feral cat colonies.

The EU has also endorsed “community-based Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) programs with on-going responsible management as the most viable, long-term approach available at this time to reduce feral cat populations.

The Cats Protection UK is another supporter of TNR understanding that the care of feral cats “is society’s responsibility” as their wild nature is the result of human neglect . Also the U.K.’s Blue Cross supports “trapping and neutering of feral cats where local charities have the capacity to do so.

Once the cats have been have been neutered and under anesthetic , one ear will be clipped so they will not be trapped again.
