Community Cats: Love me, let me stay

I found a cat. What do I do?

Cats and humans have lived alongside each other for thousands of years.

In Sonoma County, cats are part of our landscape.

Everyone knows that a cat who isn't spayed or neutered can produce an untold number of kittens.

That's why when we love our pet cats, we have them fixed.

But what about cats who are not tame and are afraid of people (feral cats) or those who are friendly but don't seem to have a human caretaker?

These are Community Cats.

And it's up to all of us to protect their well-being and keep their numbers in check.

We love Community Cats by having them spayed or neutered and letting them stay in the environment they call home.

This approach is called Trap/Neuter/Return.

Find out how to help cats in our community.
