Community (Feral) Cats
What are Community Cats? They are the same as feral cats. These cats have been dumped in the neighborhood, or otherwise abandoned by humans. Either due to lack of socialization while owned or due to living away from humans, they tend to not be touchable cats, but instead are skittish around humans. Many spay/neuter clinics designed to help these cats will require that the cats you bring in be 'feral' and not touchable.
Eartipping Community Cats is essential. An eartip is a sign to all other people involved with these community cats that this cat has already been spayed or neutered and vaccinated. This can save the cat's life in many ways. People will be less likely to re-trap the cat, as they already know it won't produce any kittens, and it will allow people to focus on trapping cats that are still in need of alter.
