Hawaii organizations aim to reduce Oahu's feral cat problem
The Hawaiian Humane Society and CatFriends have teamed up to reduce overpopulation of free-roaming cats across the state.
The humane society estimates there are over 300-thousand community cats island-wide.
Cat overpopulation has surfaced in places like Hawaii Kai and Chaminade University. Humane society officials say the problem is worst in the 96819 zip code, which encompasses parts of Kalihi, Moanalua, Pearl Harbor, and Salt Lake.
Those experiencing feral cat problems are encouraged to borrow a cat trap from the Humane Society or CatFriends. Sterilization appointments are also being taken by the Humane Society.
Officials say it is only when cats are trapped, neutered, and returned to their colonies that the population stabilizes.
