  1. Check to see if the cat's ear has been tipped and/or talk to your neighbors to determine whether the cats have been spayed or neutered. If not, call DBCHS at 859.238.1117 to schedule FREE spay/neuter surgery.

  2. Apply nontoxic deterrents around your yard.

  3. Put a tight lid on your trash can.

  4. Block gaps in the foundation of sheds and porches.

  5. Use a cover to keep paw prints off your car.

  6. If you feed your cats outside other cats will join them, so feed your felines inside if possible!
