Cheyenne City Council Considering Options for Feral Cat Population

By Kari Eakins – 14 Oct ’14

The Cheyenne City Council is looking at ways to deal with the city’s feral cat population. The Community Cat Initiative was referred to the Public Services Committee during the city council meeting Monday night.

Mayor Rick Kaysen says several citizens and the Cheyenne Animal Shelter prompted them to look at ways to prevent feral cats from becoming a public health issue by both keeping them healthy and keeping them from reproducing. He also says identifying cats could be a way to help them know if they are dealing with someone’s pet.

The Public Services Committee will discuss the Community Cat Initiative during their meeting on Tuesday, October 21st at noon in Room 122 of the Cheyenne Municipal Building.
