BRADENTON, Florida (AP) - A colony of feral cats is causing a spat at a mobile home community for senior citizens.

The Bradenton Herald reports some residents of Trailer Estates in Manatee County are angry because they say the animals have become a nuisance, especially the deposits of feline feces around the community.

Neighbors said they didn't know exactly how many cats were in the colony, estimating anywhere from 10 to 50.

Manatee County officials, under a no-kill policy adopted in 2011, trap the animals, neuter or spay them, and then release them again where they were found.

Some residents say letting the colony die out won't be quick enough. They urged park trustees to get tough with those who are feeding the cats.
