Care for Cats tries to stop cat overpopulation

CONEY ISLAND - Care for Cats is attempting to put a stop to the overpopulation of cats in the Coney Island area.

The group is taking control by spaying and neutering neighborhood cats that have taken over the streets.

Members of the group say the likelihood of these cats that end up in the shelter, only to be euthanized is high. Members feel this project is the best thing to do for these cats, who for almost two years have made vacant lots and buildings their homes.

This month, Care for Cats trapped 40 stray cats and will monitor the neighborhood for more cats and kittens. They plan on making a visit next month to spay and neuter them.
