    LOL I used to catch and relocate them all the time when I lived in the city and the crazy lady next door fed about 50 cats and all the wild critters that would come to her door. Animal Control refused to deal with it so we got a live trap and dealt with it ourselves taking the wild critters to a better area and taking any cats to the pound.

    Let me clarify that. If we knew the cat belonged to a neighbor we let it back loose. If it was one of the feral cats we took it to the pound. I even caught my own kitty a couple times. LOL

    Make sure you check your regulations folks. In most states (IL,IA, NY for sure) relocating live trapped wildlife is illegal.

    Quote:It wasn't in IA. It was in MO and that is what animal control told us to do with them. They did want want to deal with the problem with the crazy lady but they told us that we could bring the cats to them if we trapped them and to relocate any wildlife we caught. She was letting the raccoons and possums live in her basement on purpose because she thought they were cute.
