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.

Cats work to keep down rodents. Rats and mice are the second and third most common mammal on the planet, after humans.

They are awfully young to have been released from those traps. They are going to have a time of it to survive. I would also like to add the fact that they wouldn't be ferals if people had the sense to take responsibility for spaying and neutering their cats. I find this both sad and disgusting. This is too cruel a world for anything feral.

Great way of Saving the lives of kitties!!! If only more humans would be RESPONSIBLE pet parents, we wouldnt have a problem,with unwanted babies,who get dumped,and end up feral in the first place!! Spay and Neuter your pets,it Saves their life,and doesn't add to the over-population problem of animal's!!!!
