What’s a feral cat’s life worth?

Feral cats aren’t so much of a problem if they’re not creating more. So Padgie Kimmick, through her nonprofit Cat Care TNR, traps the cats and has them spayed or neutered, controlling the populations and avoiding the possibility of euthanasia among out-of-control colonies. Earlier this month, she picked up cat-filled traps near U.S. Highway 160 east of Durango. She’s also holding two tiny kittens whose eyes have yet to open.
You never know what you’re going to find. Padgie Kimmick discovered these two kittens under an overturned speed limit sign at a mobile home park east of Elmore’s Corner. She was there trapping feral cats for a landowner through her nonprofit organization, Cat Care TNR (trap, neuter, return).
This trapped feral cat has Padgie Kimmick to thank for its shade. Kimmick, a self-confessed “crazy cat lady,” traps the cats, has them spayed or neutered, then returns them to the location. Some landowners like having them around to keep down mice populations, but if left to their own devices, the cats’ populations can quickly explode.
