Communicating with neighbors is an important part of the TNR process. It is very difficult to trap cats when they are not hungry, so it is critical to find out if other neighbors are feeding cats and coordinate with them. It’s also important to communicate with neighbors who may not be happy with the cats in the neighborhood, to let them know that you will be helping reduce the population and address any nuisance issues. Flyering the neighborhood can also find neighbors who are supportive of TNR, want to help with the process, will watch traps in their yard and are even willing to donate to the cause.
