San Pedro Tries to Fix Its Cat Problem

More Felix the cat news, sort of: In an effort to trim its feral cat population, as well as its related rat and raccoon problems, San Pedro is launching Operation Felix, short for "Feral Education and Love Instead of Extermination." The program will capture and neuter the cats, then return them to their wild colonies at the Cabrillo Marina, Royal Palms and other coastal regions, reports the Press-Telegram's Donna Littlejohn. But some animal advocates say the fix 'em, put 'em back program isn't effective. Also not effective: Going in and just killing the cats, since the clever fur balls "begin reproducing at a faster rate when under duress or threat of extinction."
