Doing TNR in hot weather? Try this tip!

August 10, 2017

The summer months can make trapping cats for a TNR program tough. Bryan Kortis, national programs director for Neighborhood Cats, has a tip to make it easier:

One thing I would emphasize is trapping after dark, when it usually cools down at least a bit.

To facilitate this, caretakers need to get the cats on a feeding pattern that starts after dusk. Put out food for half an hour once the sun goes down, then remove. The cats should learn the new routine within a week or two.

The same thing could be done around dawn if the caretaker and trapper are early risers. Feeding patterns at any time of day will generally make trapping much more predictable and successful.
