Feral cat trappers needed in Hoboken

OK, it seems as if there’s a Hoboken “cat-i-demic” going on, especially uptown.
Apparently, there is a small “colony” of feral cats near the Hudson Tea Building (in the lot between 14th and 15th, Bloomfield and Washington). A couple Hoboken411 readers wrote in, and need help rescuing them (i.e., volunteers).

“If you are feeding feral cats and/or do Trap Neuter Return we would like to meet you. There is a colony in the north end of Hoboken that needs to be TNRd and we are organizing an effort to trap and release them.
Would you like to assist with this? If so, contact email@example.com.

Hoboken lacks animal control
“I would like bring to the community’s attention the issue of lack of any type of Animal Control in Hoboken.
I live in North Hoboken, near Hudson Tea and the empty lot there is loaded with stray cats who are having many kittens (it is not safe there for kittens). I called Frank Sasso, animal control officer, but he said that the city has no mechanism to deal with the issue (the proper solution is a Trap/Neuter/Release program or a neuter scooter).
I have enlisted the help of some volunteer groups, but they are overstretched and under funded and a properly run municipality should not neglect important services and hope that good Samaritans pick up the slack. I’d like to raise awareness and gather names of those who would like to petition city hall with me on this issue.”
