Feral cats a problem that's not easy to deal with

(DOH! This sounds like my neighbor!)
About 15 residents appealed to the Manchester Township supervisors this week to help them with feral cats in the Out Door Country Club area - a problem seen around York County.

Gerald Anderson, who lives on Detwiler Drive, said feral cats have been multiplying in the area for up to four years. The cats have damaged his car, screen porch, water garden and garage. They are a health hazard with the feces and urine that permeates the area, he said.

Anderson said that, in the past two years, he and his neighbors have trapped 64 feral cats and taken them to the York County SPCA.

The cause of the problem is that one neighbor feeds the cats, which keeps them around, Anderson said.
