Attack of the Alien Invaders, National Geographic Magazine: World’s Worst Invasive Has Good Home

Felines flock to a golf course feeding at Ocean Reef, a private community that provides veterinary care to help curb the number of feral cats in the Florida Keys.

ORCAT is Ocean Reef’s Trap-Neurter-Release program that began in the 1980s when the area had a serious cat overpopulation problem and 2,000 cats lived on the island’s four square miles. Today it is recognized as a successful model with the number of feral cats down to around 350, 100 of which reside at the Grayvik Animal Care Center.

Elsewhere, the feral cat has not been tamed and was named one of the 100 of the world’s worst invasive species.
