Registering Cats

Checking-in cats

Operation Catnip's services are for community cats.

Community cats include feral cats, stray and abandoned cats, and interdependent colonies of unowned, free-roaming cats. They occupy our porches, backyards, alleys, barns, and neighborhoods. Without a human address to call home, these “neighborhood cats” form colonies where food and shelter are available.

Feral cats are the offspring of stray or abandoned household pets. Raised without human contact, they avoid people. Because feral cats rarely learn to trust people, most do not make good pets. Even young feral kittens can be difficult to socialize for adoption, and are often ignored by pet rescue groups, or euthanized at animal control facilities.

If you know of community cats or have some living on your property we would love to neuter/spay them, provide them with preventatives for fleas/ticks, and vaccinate them for common diseases that might harm an outdoor cat.

If you believe that you know cat(s) that qualify, then we would be happy to provide this service for you! Please click on the link below to register your colony for our next clinic! If you believe that your cat(s) do not qualify, please refer to our "other spaying/neutering programs" page to see what fits for you!
