Every street in Arlington has cats living and surviving. Catching and removing these cats is ineffeciant and cruel as they have established themselves in their Community. Scientific studies have proved that when you remove any species from an area with an established food source, more will move in. The humane method of Trap-Neuter-Return stabalizes the population because they are neutered and not reproducing. Also, the nuisance behavior ends. This is called the VACUUM EFFECT.

There are quite a few deterrents available to keep cats out of your yard.
Commercial products such as Cat Scram
Orange or Lemon peels in landscaping
Ultrasonic Devices such as Cat Stop
