County Dealing With Staggering Number of Stray Cats
MONTGOMERY COUNTY -- A staggering number of strays are living right here in Montgomery County.
According to the Humane Society of Greater Dayton, it's an estimated 85,000 cats.
"There's just too many stray cats," said Patty Hodapp.
Hodapp is doing her part to help with the cat overpopulation in her neighborhood.
"In the last five years, I've probably fixed 20 in my neighborhood," she said. "And that's just in a five-block radius."
She trapped a mother cat and her two kittens, and brought them to the Humane Society to be spayed or neutered.
"We're bursting at the seams with cats," said Brian Weltge, president and CEO of the Humane Society of Greater Dayton. "The problem with that size or number of free roaming cats outside is that the majority of them, in fact 97 percent of them are not spayed or neutered."
One un-spayed female and one un-neutered male and their offspring can produce a staggering 420,000 kittens in just seven years, that's according to the Humane Society.
"It's a problem that we really can't adopt our way out of, and we really can't euthanize our way out of a problem like that," said Weltge.
The only solution, according to Weltge, is to trap, fix and release the cats.
"It saves the cat's life and responsibly and humanely decreases the cat overpopulation problem over time," he said.
It's a solution Patty hopes everyone will help with.
"I'd rather have a cat population under control, where people can enjoy them and they're not a nuisance to anybody," said Hodapp.
If you're interested in trapping stray cats to help them get fixed the Humane Society rents traps for $1 a day.
They are also hosting a trapping seminar on September 3.
