Dr. Karri McCreary, co-owner of the Greenville Animal Hospital, says the hospital has partnered with the Abandoned Pet Project to provide neutering surgeries for feral cats that are caught and brought to the hospital.  The neutering is the "snip," and clipping the end of one of the cat's ears is the "tip," so that the cat can be identified as one that has been treated.  The fee for an individual trapping a cat and bringing it in is $20, thanks for a grant from the Abandoned Pet Project.  Dr. McCreary is hoping that groups will work together to catch the feral cats and bring them in.  She says about 200 cats have been treated so far.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
