TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Flooded with feral felines, with no help from animal control, what's a neighborhood to do?
Thankfully there are alternative kitty-trapping tools out there.
Those alternatives center around one thing: a cage.
It's safe, and it doesn't hurt the cat.
It just lures it in with food, letting the trapdoor close behind it.
Several agencies rent them out.
We got one at the Hermitage no-kill Cat Shelter on 21st Street.
It's the first step in a little-known proccess called TNR: Trap Neuter Release.
"A lot of people are surprised because they never knew about it," said Breanna Hayden, adoption coordinator at the shelter. "They thought that if they were to trap the cat they'd have to you know figure out some way to bring it in themselves in a carrier or whatnot. This just makes it a lot easier."
