How to humanely handle feral cats

Recent comments about community cats at local candidate forums brought much-needed light to the community cat problem in Licking County. As a community cat advocate, I welcome the attention to a problem affecting the welfare of thousands of cats in Licking County and the people living near them.

A community cat is an outdoor, unowned, free roaming cat. This includes abandoned, lost formerly socialized pets, their offspring, and truly feral cats that have been born in the wild, never socialized to humans. Community cats often depend on people for food and shelter. The people who support these cats are called colony caregivers.
