Eleven cats, one bowl

Outside of an abandoned trailer in rural Lincoln County, eleven cats eat out of one food bowl set out by a wayward Samaritan. 

Lincoln County, Mo. - Tropicana Mobile Home Community continues to make headlines in Lincoln County, but this time it is not due to large rent hikes or rallying citizens. Instead, the community is facing a microcosm of one of Lincoln County’s lesser-known problems: The overpopulation of cats.

Residents of both Lincoln County and St. Charles County have recently expressed concern for the issue. Bonnie Jackson, a resident of Tropicana, claims that the senior section (roughly one third) of the community hosts around 40 stray cats.
