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.”
