How do I Take Care of a Colony of Feral Cats?

The very first thing that needs to be done when caring for a colony of cats outside is to make sure that all the cats are spayed and neutered and that any new cats that show up in the colony get spayed and neutered as soon as possible. 

The reason spay/neuter is the first and most important step is because it is the best way to stop the overpopulation of cats, keep the cats healthy and happy, and help keep your neighbors happy by eliminating nuisance behaviors. Metro Denver Cat provides free trap rental to anyone who needs to trap cats for trap- neuter- return. Call (844)- 336- 2287 to schedule an appointment to pick up traps.
