The city of Lawrence will consider a request to allow colonies of feral cats to live in the city if they have been vaccinated and spayed or neutered.

The Lawrence Humane Society is proposing the change, which would allow organization workers to trap the cats to be vaccinated and spayed or neutered. The cats would then be returned to the area where they are captured. The Humane Society says it euthanizes dozes of feral cats every year because they aren't adoptable. The city commission will consider several changes to the animal control ordinance Tuesday.

The city staff says it doesn't have enough information yet to make a recommendation.

Topeka and Kansas City, Kansas, have community cat programs and Wichita is considering instituting it.
