Cats of the Urban Wild

There are thousands of feral cats in the streets of New York City. They were abandoned, or else were born to feral cats. They hide in the shadows and don’t trust people. What to do about all those cats?

There aren’t enough homes for the feral cat population, so the response until recently was to catch and put them down. But in the last couple of decades, the T.N.R. method has shown some promise. That’s "trap, neuter, return (or release)." It’s been found to be effective in slowly reducing the population of feral colonies. This video from The New Yorker follows volunteers as they go about trapping and caring for feral cats in Brooklyn. -via the Presurfer
