I'm an animal lover and am extremely active in animal rescue efforts. My biggest passion is spreading the word about Trap-Neuter-Return programs (TNR). TNR is a program where feral cats are trapped, spayed/neutered, and returned to their home outside to live out their lives without reproducing. It's the most humane way to control the feral cat population. This is the time of year known to those in animal rescue as “kitten season,” a time when huge numbers of kittens are being born to stray and feral cats. Somebody recently sent me an interesting article on what will happen to many of these kittens, and now I'm passing it onto you. Many municipalities are starting to pass ordinances that could protect ferals from the fate described in the article, but there is still much work that needs to be done to protect feral cats and kittens.
