Unaltered cat at a managed colony at Pier 70, Philadelphia

THE REALITY OF FERAL CAT COLONY MANAGEMENT

Colonies consist of feral cats, strays, abandoned animals and free-roaming pets.

Cats succumb to disease or tragedy - not old age.

Inhumane outcomes for domestic companion animals.

Ineffective at reducing the number of feral cats.

Cats do not defend their territories. Newcomers find the food. Pets are dumped.

Perpetual colony maintenance.

Well-fed cats are no less motivated to hunt.

Cat predation is a significant cause of the destruction of native wildlife.

Environmentally irresponsible. Maintaining cat colonies IS habitat destruction.

Rabies-vector wildlife dine alongside colony cats.

Not good public health policy.

Not good use of municipal, county or state funds.
