Spay/Neuter Cats

Posted by Nyanko on 8:32 PM in ,
Now we are promoting TNR in our prefecture.
When people complained about troubles caused by stray cats, we tell them the effect of TNR and how to get along well with stray cats.

In many case, one or two feeders feed stray cats without spay/neuter and people have troubles with poop of increasing cats.
And in most of case, resident say "Take all cats away from this area!" with anger, but our law doesn't allow to eradicate stray cats.
So we persuade them to try TNR, which is the only effective way to reduce cats.

We accept requests from the representative of neighbors' community association to try TNR, then we help them to trap cats and spay/neuter with registered volunteers.

Last week, a volunteer trapped and brought 9 cats and kittens from the lake side village, where many many cats were abandoned.

We have many other jobs and don't have enough time to do surgery everyday, but we are trying to spay/neuter strays as many as possible.


Symposium About Stray Cats

Posted by Nyanko on 9:50 PM in ,
Yesterday, I attended the symposium about stray cats held in Osaka city.
Many volunteers, government officials, charity organizations attended, some of whom I know.
In Japan, the stray cats cause many problems all over the country now.
Most of case, some people feed cats without spay/neuter, so neighbors complain that cats increase and leave their poop or damage neighbors gardens.

All members think that the most important and efficient way to solve the problems is TNR.
Volunteers said "We need the support of local government.", government officials said "We need volunteers' help." so we have to cooperate strongly.

 I am an official of local government animal control, and I'm working as a volunteer as well.
So I understand both side of opinion.
In some area, it goes very well with cooperation between local government and volunteers, but in other area, volunteers work hard but local government doesn't support.
In our prefecture, we want to promote TNR as local government but we have only a few volunteers to help us.

I hope we could promote more and more TNR projects to reduce unhappy kittens.
