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.

Judith g. Know who is against tnr? PETA. They want them killed. Not going to happen. These people are animal killers and have stocks in Tyson. Tyson. Who rip heads off of live chickens and other torture.

I have been doing this since 2005. Never gets old to release them in the hands of caretaker who feeds them and puts out winter shelters for them.

Animals are just like people. They don't forget.

I absolutely agree with Trap-Neuter-Return! I think it is a great and important program!
Our Humane society finally started doing it about 6-7 years ago, and the results are getting better every year!
A friend took a kitten to be spayed and it only cost her $25.00. (I took my cat to a Vet and it was over $100.00!) Ironically, she let the kitten in on a cold night and the kitten curled up by her fireplace and didn't want back out.

Thanks for saving the cats. So sweet that they remembered each other and these cats are being taken care of and can live a happy life, and not reproduce again.

I'm happy the other siblings accepted her back. To a happy life playing in such a large yard!
