Does anyone know of something that will not kill a cat but will keep them from conceiving? Something that can be put in their food or water?
Sure ain't humane to all the small native birds and animals that feral cats destroy - at least one per day as food - more when they clean up a bird nest or a litter of young animals. Or when they kill to play. They'll keep on doing that until they fall victim to a fox, bobcat, coyote, feral dog - and that's not humane either.Annie in S.E.

You obviously have no concept of how many mice cats can catch and eat each year.Don Armstrong said:The humane and conservationally responsible thing to do is to eliminate feral cats. Cost effective too.
Have you ever seen the damage mice can do? Just ask any farmer.agmantoo said:Not that my opinion matters, but Mr. Armstrong's response is dead on from my view point. It is unfortunate that many here cannot come to recongize the true facts. Coyotes continue to reduce the feral cat population so the question of cat birth control and feral cats may be of no significance in the near future.
Cat's should not be confined in a house, unless you live in town or something.
