Overjoyed Feral Kittens Reunite After Release from Trap

As part of the feral trap-neuter-release (TNR) rescue program, we trapped this black kitty and had him fixed. In this video, we are releasing him back to his siblings, who are overjoyed to see him. The kitty will live out his life in the gulch near our house (you can see the shelter we built) without having more kittens and making the problem worse. He has had one ear slightly clipped so that animal control knows a loving family is taking care of this feral animal.

Trap-neuter-release programs make a monumental impact in the welfare of feral cats and have prevented the suffering of millions upon millions of kittens.

Glad they are being cared for and they will be keeping down rats. Rats are the second most numerous mammal on the planet now after humans. Good reason to care for feral cats.
