Feral Cat Day

Cindy Hewitt, executive director of Miami's Cat Network, sends this along:

The Cat Network, Inc., is promoting National Feral Cat Day with a “Spay a Stray for $10” special, Oct. 16 – 31. The event is one of many planned nationwide. NFCD was created by Alley Cat Allies, a national feral cat resource.

The goal of Miami’s Cat Network is to inform the public about free-roaming cats and Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR), a nonlethal feline population control method that has been proven worldwide to reduce the number of free-roaming cats.

Under the assistance and guidance of Cat Network over 30,000 cats have been sterilized and vaccinated. For more information on how to sterilize stray, feral and abandoned cats, go to thecatnetwork.org or call 305-255-3482.
