Feral cat management fail

Our university has a lot of feral cats.

Cat food

The “Do not feed the cats” signs do not seem to be working. Sigh.

Are the cats being TNRed? Because as you know, simply telling people not to feed the cats will not work. People are compassionate and will feed the cats. The best solution is to manage the colony, through a TNR program. Cats will be sterilized and vaccinated, so the breeding cycle will be stopped. Any friendly cats or kittens should be removed and homes found for them. The rest should be managed with volunteer feeders and any new cats trapped an sterilized. Over time, the number of cats will naturally decrease.
