News & Events

At the Community Cat Center, there’s always something new and exciting keeping us on our paws. Stay updated on all the center’s latest with our regularly updated event calendar and newsletter.

Community TNRM Program

Cats without indoor homes are what we call free-roaming or community cats. These are simply cats that live in the community. In your alley ways, backyards, and parks. These cats have no owners but are no less deserving of the love and care we give to our indoor pets. When these cats are left alone, they breed A LOT! 



TNRM stands for “Trap, Neuter, Return, Monitor.” Trap-Neuter-Return is the humane, effective approach for feral cats. Feral cats are humanely trapped, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and ear-tipped (the universal symbol of a neutered and vaccinated cat), and then returned to their outdoor home.


PawsWatch encourages Rhode Islanders to assist the cats on their own property, with our help. We are not a shelter, and we do not take in owned or stray cats; however, we may facilitate the adoption of cats and kittens being cared for by our friends and neighbors.
