PORT ANGELES — Animal welfare organizations in Clallam County are working together on a project to prevent the feral cat population on Ediz Hook from growing worse.

They plan to capture the cats, spay or neuter them and let them go.

Sue Miles of the Spay to Save clinic in Port Angeles tells the Peninsula Daily News that capture-neuter-release is the most humane way to deal with feral cats, because it allows colonies to die out without killing cats.

Five organizations are training volunteers for spay-and-neuter clinics beginning in February. They hope to treat 100 cats at a time.
