World Cat Day

August 8th is International Cat Day! This holiday was created by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) in 2002 and has been celebrated annually by animal groups and animal lovers alike ever since.

World Cat Day: What's TNR?

In these TNR programs, feral cats are trapped (typically with box traps), taken to a local veterinary to be spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and eartipped, then released back into the neighborhoods from which they came. TNR is an incredibly important program to execute in communities. It not only controls and eventually decreases the feral cat population, and has been proven to be the most successful method to do so, but also balances the wants of the human community as well. People want more humane ways to deal with the feral cat problem; TNR is the answer.
