Representatives from the NYC Feral Cat Initiative of the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals met today with representatives of St. James Church and the Archdioceses of New York to discuss a resolution to the feral cat situation on the grounds of the church. We listened to their concerns and shared information about TNR with them, and they asked us to write up a proposal regarding the possibilities for ongoing care of the cats on the property.
Please continue to politely encourage Father Gonsalves and the Archdiocese to pursue TNR and ongoing colony care as the only humane and effective solution for the cats and the parish!
Call Joseph Zwilling, Communications Director for the Archdiocese of New York, at (212) 371-1011 x2997.
