Feral Friends protect county's roaming cats
Saffell is the president of the Prince George's Feral Friends, which educates residents on how to trap the cat with a humane trap, neuter the animal and return it back to the location where the cat was picked up. It is called the TNR solution or Trap-Neuter-Return.
The organization began six years ago and provides a solution counter to the county's policy to kill feral cats or wild cats that have not been socialized. This solution is also counter to what a Virginia woman recently did, who was found with more than 100 cats in her house.
