It says Around Town but the headline is UTAH. Utah is not near Natick!! I think everyone should notRead More open an article on Patch unless they see their town's name in the headline. So If it doesn't say Natick, then we all know it is not LOCAL to the Natick Patch. The less clicks these Patch sites get, the fewer advertisers they will get and then perhaps they will realize if we want sensational news from across the country we'd go back to Patch's former owners AOL and the HuffPost! Those here from other Patch sites - I think you should do the same only click on articles that mention your community's name. No name. No click!

Conclusions on all TNR practices now direct from the CDC (URL: onlinelibrary.wiley D0T com SLASHRead More doi/10.1111/zph.12070/abstract ) Summary: Domestic cats are an important part of many Americans' lives, but effective control of the 60-100 million feral cats living throughout the country remains problematic. Although trap-neuter-vaccinate-return (TNVR) programmes are growing in popularity as alternatives to euthanizing feral cats, their ability to adequately address disease threats and population growth within managed cat colonies is dubious. Rabies transmission via feral cats is a particular concern as demonstrated by the significant proportion of rabies post-exposure prophylaxis associated with exposures involving cats. Moreover, TNVR has not been shown to reliably reduce feral cat colony populations because of low implementation rates, inconsistent maintenance, and immigration of unsterilized cats into colonies. For these reasons, TNVR programmes are not effective methods for reducing public health concerns or for controlling feral cat populations. Instead, responsible pet ownership, universal rabies vaccination of pets and removal of strays remain integral components to control rabies and other diseases.

20,000 cats? According to population-growth calculus, and GREATLY underestimating by having themRead More breed only 2X's per year, not the 3X-4X's they are capable of, with only a 50% survival rate; in ONE YEAR you will have a GREATLY UNDERESTIMATED 130,500 feral cats running around. So this means that on average 307.2 cats are being born PER DAY from your present stray-cat population numbers. You MUST trap and sterilize AT LEAST 307.2 cats PER DAY just to remain at the same rate they breed, and do this INTO PERPETUITY. You MUST trap MORE THAN 307.2 cats PER DAY to start to surpass the rate at which they breed. The average cost to TNR is $120-$170 nationwide (field-work, vets, supplies, transport, etc.), so your community MUST divert resources of man-hours and costs averaging at $43,008.00 PER DAY ($15,697,920.00 per year), JUST TO MATCH THEIR BREEDING RATES. (Keeping in mind that this is a GREATLY UNDERESTIMATED number.) Those .22's on in the hunting department are starting to look pretty good at the price of $0.03-$0.05 per cat, now aren't they. Most communities realize this once they do the math. That's what I used to get rid of hundreds of their cats on my lands 4 years ago, hundreds of them all for less than the price of a couple cups of coffee. .22s on close-out sale of 5000 round for $15. Hundreds of invasive species cats all sterilized, all vaccinated against all diseases, all permanently stopped from destroying native wildlife, and all given a permanent "forever home", all for the cost of 3 cats per penny -- and I've not seen even ONE cat since. TNR-advocates' "vacuum effect" is also just another manipulative and bald-faced deception and LIE. That myth is based on one simple fact: cats attract cats. Shoot and bury every last cat on your lands and there's none there to attract more. Simple as that. For further info on how you are being deceived, manipulated, and lied to by TNR-advocates, Google for (include quotes): "The TNR Con-Game"

I'll celebrate Feral-Cat Day this year because every last one of hundreds of these man-made invasiveRead More species vermin is gone from my lands, and NONE have returned -- FOR NEARLY FOUR YEARS NOW! Much to the chagrin of those fools who bought into that manipulative TNR-LIE of the "vacuum effect". Simple reason being, cats attract cats. (The origin and source of the "vacuum effect" LIE.) Get rid of every last one and there's none there to attract more of them. Simple as that. You really can't celebrate until you've accomplished getting rid of every last feral-cat. Otherwise there's nothing to celebrate. You're just jumping around like a fool and an idiot, celebrating accomplishing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. All NATIVE wildlife on my land is now returning to normal. Nature is once again back in balance, as it was, and as it should be. Predators no longer starving to death due to cats destroying their only food sources, no prey animals being tortured to death for disemboweled twitching play-toys for cats. No longer are cats spreading their deadly diseases to all animals and humans. There's much to celebrate. On advice of the sheriff I managed to do this by shooting every last one with a good .22 outfitted with a laser-sight and good illuminated scope for precision aim, affording a humane and LEGAL kill each and every time. (Shoot-to-maim is illegal animal cruelty, and rightly so. Shoot-to-kill is perfectly legal. The cat MUST die to make it legal.) This method is as humane as it gets. One moment they are intently stalking some more defenseless animals to torture for play-toys, the next they are dead and don't even know what happened. They don't even have enough time to know they've been shot. This is even more humane than having them suffer the torment of being trapped in cages for days on end. I urge everyone to rid their land of this devastating invasive-species this way. It's the only way that can catch up to cats' breeding rates. If not, you'll be trapping them for an eternity as they continue to breed faster than your reach. Then the next generations will have learned to evade traps and won't even be able to be trapped. Don't be stupid.
