Feral Cat Removal

Please let City Council members Bobby Henon and Mark Squilla and Philadelphia Parks and Recreation Commissioner Kathryn Ott-Lovell know that you support the enforcement of PPR’s policy against the feeding and sheltering of outdoor cats in general, and at Pleasant Hill Park in particular as there has been pushback against the removal of the feral cat colony there. Feral cats are not only the greatest human-caused source of direct mortality to birds, but the presence of their colonies poses a significant health risk to those who come in contact with them, including park users.  This link is a version of the DVOC’s letter – feel free to “borrow” any language; share the links, etc. in your correspondence.
