D.C. Cat Count

Livescience.com says the project D.C. Cat Count is being put together to better manage cats living in the Washington, D.C., area. The project will take three years and cost $1.5 million. Scientists, animal welfare organizations, and citizens will do counting using camera traps, household surveys, and analyses at shelters. The group hopes to create a phone app that will allow citizens to send in photos of cats they see in the area.n
