Feral cats are actually an important part of the urban environment and you did a Good Thing in helping out, Amos.
I helped out on a similar thing back in my early teen years, except it was on feral skunks. That was a Boy Scout project (thought up by the Scoutmaster) which didn't work out so well. Oh, the anesthesia was in the bait so they were "out" when they were brought to us and during the operation, but we loaded them back into the Scoutmaster's van before they woke up. They awakened as he was on the way to drop them off; an Army Chemical Warfare decontamination unit was eventually called in. The place where he eventually ran off the road is barren to this day, and he was forced to live in a tent on the top of Windy Hill for a little over a year.
