Controlling Community Cats – Hosted by Central Coast Humane Society
Sponsored by Petco Foundation
How can you take a wild feral kitten(s) and make it suitable for adoption?
The Eventuary, 560 SW Fleet Ave, Lincoln City will be the site of a workshop on this very subject on Thursday, Feb 28th from 10 am to 1 pm. Mike Phillips and Valerie Sicignano of the NY City Feral Cat Initiative will present information on the taming of community / feral kittens, and friendlier older cats.
Using actual film footage of successful techniques, combined with insights into the biological development of kittens, they will provide attendees with an opportunity to learn how to tame and socialize kittens quickly and efficiently so that they can be adopted into indoor homes.
Valerie and Mike will talk about the theory and practical application of TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return) and why it has proven to be the only avenue that works in controlling community cats by having the “fixed” cats work as “placeholders” of an area to keep other cats from collecting.
Printed hand-outs and refreshments will be provided. Everyone is welcome. Please RSVP to: CentralCoastHS@yahoo.com
