Yachtsman Grill manages a small cat colony that can be seen around the restaurant and the Hamilton Villas. These cats are part of a TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return) program managed by Nevis Animal Speak nevisanimalspeak.org. Our colony of cats hunt for lizards and other small critters to naturally help keep the unwanted vermin away.
Cats with a small tip of their ear missing means they are spayed/neutered and will not be making unwanted kittens. This is an internationally recognized program and the females hae the left ear tipped while the males have their right ear tipped.
Most of the cats are shy (feral) and prefer to avoid physical contact
Please do not feed the cats table scraps as they are fed ad managed daily by our staff
Q-How old is the oldest cat in the colony?
A-Tom, the mostly white with black spots pictured on the left was born in 2013
Q- How does the population stay manageable?
A- The colony is spayed/neutered which means they won't give off the scent inviting other cats to mate. Additionally, the YG cats will help keep new cats away as they guard their territory and don't appreciate newcomers.
