What Home Means for Cats

Working Together to Keep More Cats Alive and Thriving

What does return to home mean when it comes to cats that live indoors and out? When it comes to talking about cats, we use a lot of acronyms: RTF, RTH, TNR, and SNR. But, the only term we really need is Return to Home. Cat fanatics and experts discuss why it is best to return ALL cats to their homes (even the friendly ones!), how to educate communities and get them on-board, and why indiscriminate impoundment of cats is harmful to marginalized communities.
