Feral cat population an issue in Augusta


AUGUSTA, Kansas – The city of Augusta has a cat problem, and it’s developing into a cat fight.

Dozens gathered Monday night for a community meeting to discuss another option for dealing with the city’s large population of feral cats.

Currently, the city captures them and kills the cats deemed “not adoptable”, at a yearly expense of more than $30,000.

Another option would be to trap, neuter, and release the cats.

“The cats are already there, if they’re not attacking and biting people now, why would they attack and bite people after they got fixed?” questioned Sue Schamp, Trap Neuter and Release coordinator.

The issue was tabled for two weeks until the next city council meeting.
