Feral cats feed flea outbreak

Her trailer home and yard, she said, are constantly being reinfested by the many feral cats in the neighborhood, cats that are being provided food and water by an elderly neighbor on an abandoned lot next door where a trailer had burned a couple of years ago.

As a result, Saucedo said, the cats have reproduced from a couple two years ago to an estimated 40 today - and carrying fleas that are plaguing the entire neighborhood.

The cats get under the trailers, where they fight, shed, defecate, spray - and spread fleas, Saucedo said.
