  1. This is a great chance to begin controlling the feral cat population in Columbia. I hope we can get the maximum of 75 that day. They are out there.

    1. While I understand transportation could be a problem for some, it's still a lot closer than it had been. A few years ago Columbia was contracted with the Humane League, which is on Lincoln Highway East. At that time, I trapped four feral cats in my area and arranged to take them on my day off of work. It did cost me time and money, but it reduced the cat population. This is not for everyone, but hopefully those that can will help.

    1. Now Bob, that is a pretty long walk and carrying a feral cat too! I doubt that the bus driver will welcome them on board.

  9. The drivers of our public transportation are very pleasant people.
    If caged properly, I'm sure they would be compassionate for such a short ride.
    Never hurts to try.
