TNR on Block 832
Her success in getting 13 cats neutered (at her own expense) no doubt benefits a larger part of the East Seventh-Crescent neighborhood than just our block and she is to be thanked. The total included 11 females and two males.
Due to the differing views on how best to deal with feral cats, I will not name our neighbor. She chose a route known as TNR, for Trap-Neuter-Release. TNR advocates disapprove of having cats removed by local animal control agencies, saying few will be adopted and most will simply be euthanized.
At our end of the block we are still seeing several feral cats which did not get trapped and neutered. One persistent tomcat (above) is among them. We are figuring out how to do a similar TNR project over here.
