Albany leaders estimate there are 23,000 free-roaming cats in the city. Now the Citizens Advisory Committee has agreed on a plan to deal with them.
Wednesday The committee agreed on a proposed ordinance they say the city commission should pass. The group spent several months looking at the problem, talking to Veterinarians Animal Control officers and citizens.
The proposal would require owners who allow their cats to roam free to spay or neuter them. Those pets would have to have an ID collar or microchip.
"Hopefully we've considered all perspectives and that it is a balanced solution for those folks who are not particularly cat lovers, being respectful of those who are and vice versa," Mary Ligon of the Citizens Advisory Committee.
Healthy cats without ID will be trapped by animal control and taken directly to cooperating vets to be spayed or neutered vaccinated and ear tipped.
If those cats are trapped a second time, they'll be taken to the Humane Society.
If you feed or harbor feral cats You'll be responsible for fixing ear tipping and vaccinating them. A group called Catnappers will handle that for other colonies of feral cats.
