One of the best ways that we can take care of homeless cats is managing the colonies they live in. As long as they have shelter, food and water cat colonies can live peacefully within the communities they share. TNR, or trap-neuter-release is the best way to control cat populations and still provide the compassionate oversight this domesticated species deserves.. This is Sue. Her parents trapped her and brought her to us for help in getting her vaccinated, spayed and treated.
She came in the trap she was captured in. This is the safest way for her to be handled as she is not trusting of people and she is not vaccinated.
Her care included;
application of revolution for fleas, intestinal parasites and ear mites. It is a great topical product for cats.
