On July 19, an Oregon-based organization recently celebrated the 100,000 cat they’ve helped with their spay/neuter program.
The Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon, based in Portland, uses a system they call the ‘feral cat equation,” which is an estimation of how many feral and stray cat’s their program has prevented (think of how quickly kittens multiply).
Karen Kraus, executive director of Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon, described the system during an interview with KATU News
“We’ve got a really great equation that we use and it shows one cat having a litter of four, and that’s it. And then each one of those four having a litter of four, and that’s it. And then those 16 have a litter of four and over 10 years, that would be 1.398 million.”
A post on their Facebook page, the coalition also posted their accomplishment on their Facebook community page
“On July 19, 2019, the Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon (FCCO) celebrated the 100,000th cat helped in our clinic. This significant accomplishment is something for everyone to celebrate as the impact in our communities is so great. Boo is our milestone special kitty.”
Boo, the kitten pictured in this article was dubbed ‘Number 28.’ The Coalition offers low-cost services for pet cats and for just a donation for a stray or feral cat being regularly fed they will spay or neuter and vaccinate the cat.
