**Updated** Wayward Cats aims to tackle local feral cat problem

The Wayward Cats of Colchester County is doing its part to help combat the growing number of feral cats in the area.

The volunteer group uses a trap, neuter, and release program and recently announced they've helped over 100 cats in 2017, with a goal of 1,500 in five years.

They usually release the cats back in the same area they were caught, but the felines sometimes need to be relocated.

The group held a fundraiser at Colchester Legion Stadium last weekend.

With donations from the community and video games, board games, and card games available to be played, they raised just over $1,400 for their cause.
