Patty Drumgoole is having a fundraiser at Louise and Jerry’s this coming Wednesday June 19th 4-7pm to help control Hoboken’s feral cat population. Here is an explanation behind what the fundraiser goes for…
“I am the social worker at Hoboken High School but my work doesn’t stop at helping students.  I also assist feral and stray cats and kittens.  Using the Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) approach, I humanely trap feral cats; get them spayed/neutered and rabies vaccinated; then return them to their original location.  There they are managed by a resident who feeds them regularly.  TNR is the only proven method that successfully reduces the feral cat population.  Once fixed, feral cats live a more stress free life without being a nuisance to people.  In fact, they provide benefits by preventing mice and rats from occupying our neighborhood.
I know many people in Hoboken who are concerned about the cats and others who are annoyed by them.  TNR satisfies them all.  Because cats are territorial, they do not allow new comers into their colony.  When a colony is fixed and managed, the negative behaviors cease and the colony will disappear through attrition.  Trapping and removing essentially creates a vacuum effect and other cats will simply find their way in.
I have been doing this in town for about 8 years but have been trained since 2002.  My hope is to get this endorsed by the city but first I need the support.  I started having fundraisers a few years back; this is my 3rd one.  Local establishments donate food and gifts to raffle off.  It’s always a fun time.
In 2011 I finally became official and Hoboken Feral Cats was established.  This is a 501c(3) organization and exists solely on donations.”

  3. Here’s how these delusional, self-serving, and uneducated TNR-advocates are destroying all life on the planet.

    The TNR CON-GAME

    FACT: Trap & Kill failed because cats cannot be trapped faster than they exponentially breed out of control.

    FACT: Trap, Neuter, & Re-Abandon (TNR) is an even bigger abject failure because these man-made ecological disasters cannot be trapped faster than they exponentially breed out of control, and they also continue to cruelly annihilate all native wildlife (from the smallest of prey up to the top predators that are starved to death), and the cats continue to spread many deadly diseases that they carry today — FOR WHICH THERE ARE NO VACCINES AGAINST THEM. Many of which are even listed as bioterrorism agents. (Such as Tularemia and The Plague — Yes, people have already died from cat-transmitted plague in the USA. No fleas nor rats even required. The cats themselves carry and transmit the plague all on their own.)

    FACT: THERE IS ABSOLUTELY _NOTHING_ HUMANE ABOUT TNR. Nearly every last TNR’ed cat dies an inhumane death by road-kill, from cat and animal attacks, environmental poisons, starvation, dehydration, freezing to death, infections, parasites, etc. And if very very lucky humanely shot to death or re-trapped and drowned (the two most common methods employed on all farms and ranches to protect their gestating livestock’s offspring and valuable native wildlife dying from cats’ Toxoplasmosis parasites). This doesn’t begin to count the thousands of defenseless native animals that cats skin alive and disembowel alive for their daily and hourly play-toys. The only difference in destroying cats immediately and humanely instead of trapping, sterilizing, then releasing them to an inhumane death; is that money isn’t going into an HSUS or SPCA board-member’s pocket, veterinarian’s pocket, cat-food company CEO’s pocket, or a drug-company CEO’s pocket. And that’s the ONLY difference!

    FACT: Cats are a man-made (through selective breeding) invasive species. And as such, are no less of a man-made environmental disaster than any other caused by man. Cats are even worse than an oil-spill of continent-sized proportions. They not only kill off rare and endangered marine-mammals along all coastlines from run-off carrying cats’ Toxoplasma gondii parasites, they destroy the complete food-chain in every ecosystem where cats are found. From smallest of prey gutted and skinned alive for cats’ tortured play-toys, up to the top predators that are starved to death from cats destroying their ONLY food sources. (Precisely what cats caused on my own lands not long ago.)

    FACT: Hunted To Extinction (or in this case, extirpation of all outdoor cats) is the ONLY method that is faster than a species like cats can exponentially out-breed and out-adapt to. Especially a man-made invasive species like these cats that can breed 2X-4X’s faster than any naturally occurring cat-species.

    FACT: In _FOURTEEN_YEARS_ Alley Cat ALL-LIES of NYC have only reduced feral cats in their own city by 0.08% to 0.024% (as the months go on that percentage becomes more insignificant), allowing more than 99.92% to 99.976% to exponentially breed out of control. Here’s how Alley-Cat-ALL-LIES’ deceptive math works: If you TNR 4 cats and 3 get flattened by cars this translates to 75% fewer feral-cats everywhere. Alley Cat ALL-LIES can’t even reduce cats in their own city, yet they promote it as a worldwide solution. Then even bigger fools fall for it and promote it.

    FACT: When researching over 100 of the most “successful” TNR programs worldwide, JUST ONE trapped more than 0.4%. Oregon’s 50,000 TNR’ed cats (the highest rate I found) is 4.9% of all ferals in their state. Yet, by applying population growth calculus on the unsterilized 95.1% they will have trapped only 0.35% of all cats in their state sometime this year. Less than 0.4% is a far cry from the required 75%-85% to be the least bit effective.

    FACT: Their mythical “vacuum effect” is a 100% LIE. A study done by the Texas A&M University proved that any perceived “vacuum” is just the simple case that CATS ATTRACT CATS. Get rid of them all and there’s no cats there to attract more. I proved this myself by shooting and burying hundreds of them on my own lands. ZERO cats replaced them FOR OVER 3 YEARS NOW. If you want more cats, keep even one of them around, more will find you. That university study also found that sterilized cats very poorly defend any territory. Non-sterilized cats, being more aggressive, take over the sterilized cats’ resources (shelter & food if any). If there is any kind of “vacuum effect” at all, it is that sterilizing cats cause non-sterilized cats to restore the reproductive void.

    FACT: During all this investigation I have discovered something that is unfaltering without fail. Something that you can bet your very life on and win every last time. That being — IF A TNR CAT-HOARDER IS TALKING THEN THEY ARE LYING. 100% guaranteed!

  4. 8 years and still you've not reduced cats one little bit. You'd think that even a 50-IQ points moron could get a clue from that. But then, most TNR advocates have been doing this for over a quarter of a century, and even that isn't even enough of a clue for them.

  5. The worst part of all, anyone associated with TNR aren't adhering to the mandatory REQUIRED BY LAW SIX-MONTH QUARANTINE for any animal when harvested from the wild and intended for any sector of the pet-trade. This is why rabid kittens are now being adopted direct from shelters. Like this one of hundreds for example — Google for: RABID KITTEN ADOPTED WAKE COUNTY. The 10-14 day holding period for bite & scratch cases is ONLY meant to see if they were infectious at the time of the incident, but DOES NOT IN ANY WAY prove that that cat does not have rabies. The incubation period for rabies can be (on average) from 21 to 240 days. And in some cases as much as 11 months. One rare case being 6 years. Giving a rabies shot to an animal that already has rabies and has not been quarantined for AT LEAST 6 MONTHS FIRST does NOTHING to ensure that that animal does not have rabies!

    But these TNR morons, the veterinarians, shelters and local government "officials" that support them? EACH AND EVERY ONE IS IN *DIRECT* *VIOLATION* OF WELL-ESTABLISHED *NATIONAL* & *INTERNATIONAL* *LAW*. They ALL need to be sued — fast, hard and so deep that they never recover from it.

    Anyone who feeds them is training them to approach humans for food (contrary to claims that feral cats run from humans). What happens to the child or foolish adult that reaches down to pet or pick up that now seemingly friendly "cute kitty"? The wild animal lashes out at the hand that has no food for them.

    Worse yet, NOT ONE of these criminally irresponsible and criminally negligent TNR participants and cat-feeders carry even ONE PENNY of liability insurance for the deadly dangers they bring to their communities that have caused legally liable damages in excess of $millions in the past.

    Google for: feral cat attack rabies

    Don't be surprised at the number of search-hits. The number of suspected rabies cases and the then mandatory rabies shots for each individual costing them well over $3000 out of their own pockets, has been growing as exponentially fast as cats breed. Two reports even document rabid cats entering a home through their pet-door and one even came through their ceiling searching for human-supplied foods — one attack so bad it required hospitalization for the family.

  6. Here's how TNR lunatics have caused rabies outbreaks in many communities where this astoundingly foolish and criminally irresponsible practice has been allowed.

    Cats destroy all the native predators' food sources. Skunks, raccoons, and other assorted native wildlife are then driven to find new sources. They congregate around feral cat-colonies that are being fed, trying to use the food of the very animals that have starved them out.

    Cats' predilection to attack anything that moves will often find a rabid bat dying on the ground and use it for a play-toy. That cat, whether vaccinated or not, will then transmit that fresh rabies virus to any other animal it comes in contact with, or through fresh saliva left on the food and feeding dishes. Or any human it approaches.

    Google for: RABIES PROMPTS CARLSBAD CAT PROGRAM SUSPENSION

    Rabies Outbreak Caused by TNR, 50+ Pets Euthanized, ALL Stray Cats Destroyed, all livestock destroyed, more than a dozen homeowners pay for their own $3000+ rabies shots. Children included.

    Google for: RABIES OUTBREAK IN WESTCHESTER COUNTY

    Google for: RABID CAT ADOPTED WAKE COUNTY

    Google for: RABID KITTEN JAMESTOWN EXPOSURE

    There's hundreds more like those on the net showing everyone how their phenomenally ignorant and foolish lawmakers "help" their community by allowing TNR cat-hoarders to continue their criminally negligent behavior.

  7. These are just the diseases cats have been spreading to humans, not counting the ones they spread to all wildlife. THERE ARE NO VACCINES against many of these, and are in-fact listed as bio-terrorism agents. They include: Afipia felis, Anthrax, Bartonella (Rochalimaea) henselae, Bergeyella (Weeksella) zoohelcum, Campylobacter Infection, Cat Scratch Disease, Chlamydia psittaci (feline strain), Cowpox, Coxiella burnetti Infection (Q fever), Cryptosporidium Infection, Cutaneous larva migrans, Dermatophytosis, Dipylidium Infection (tapeworm), Hookworm Infection, Leptospira Infection, Giardia, Neisseria canis, Pasteurella multocida, Plague, Poxvirus, Rabies, Rickettsia felis, Ringworm, Salmonella Infection, Scabies, Sporothrix schenckii, Toxocara Infection, Toxoplasmosis, Trichinosis, Visceral larva migrans, Yersinia pseudotuberculosis. [Centers for Disease Control, July 2010] Sarcosporidiosis, Flea-borne Typhus, Tularemia, and Rat-Bite Fever can now also be added to that list.

    A FEW examples (of thousands):

    Cat-Transmitted PLAGUE: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8059908 http://www.pagosasun.com/archives/2011/07July/072811/web... http://www.nydailynews.com/life-style/health/oregon-man-... http://www.daily-times.com/ci_20849462/health-department...

    Totally disproving that oft-spewed myth that cats in Europe could have prevented the plague. No rats nor fleas even required. Cats themselves carry and transmit the plague all on their own.

    Tularemia: http://www.news-gazette.com/news/health/miscellaneous/20... http://www.westyellowstonenews.com/news/article_02fceec6...

    Flea-borne Typhus: http://www.ocregister.com/articles/county-317133-animals...

    Hookworm — ruined Miami Businesses: http://articles.sun-sentinel.com/2010-11-24/news/

    Cats' most insidious disease of all, their Toxoplasma gondii parasite they spread through their excrement into all other animals. This is how humans get it in their dinner-meats, cats roaming around stockyards and farms. This is why cats are routinely destroyed around gestating livestock or important wildlife by shooting or drowning them. So those animals won't suffer from the same things that can happen to the unborn fetus of any pregnant woman. (Miscarriages, still-births, hydrocephaly, and microcephaly.) It can make you blind or even kill you at any time during your life once you've been infected. It becomes a permanent lifetime parasite in your mind, killing you when your immune system becomes compromised by disease or chemo and immunosuppressive therapies. It can last over a year in any soils or waters and not even washing your hands or garden vegetables in bleach will destroy the oocysts. Contrary to cat-lickers' self-deceptive myths, a cat can become reinfected many times during its life and spread millions of oocysts each time. It's now linked to the cause of autism, schizophrenia, and brain cancers. This parasite is also killing off rare and endangered marine-mammals along all coastlines from cats' T. gondii oocysts in run-off from the land, the oocysts surviving even in saltwater.

    Its strange life cycle is meant to infect rodents. Any rodents infected with it lose their fear of cats and are attracted to cat urine.
    http://scitizen.com/neuroscience/parasite-hijacks

    Cats attract rodents to your home with their whole slew of diseases. If you want rodents in your home keep cats outside of it to attract diseased rodents to your area. I experienced this phenomenon (as have many others), and all rodent problems disappeared after I shot and buried every last one of hundreds of cats on my lands.

    The time has come to destroy them all whenever spotted away from supervised confinement. There's no other solution. We have nobody but cat-lickers to thank for this health and ecological disaster. Stray-cats, the very source of all feral-cats, need to be euthanized too or you'll never be rid of the feral-cat problem.

  8. Well one thing is for sure, the cat certainly did not get Woodsman’s tongue. :) All kidding aside the commenter woodsman brings up some excellent points and the links I checked out all came back as credible in my estimation. Let the debate continue….
