There are several cat rescue groups that work closely in the community to help with feral and free roaming cats. These rescue groups can offer assistance in minimizing cat nuisance behavior by spay and neuter programs, humane products and other helpful tips and suggestions.   
Please note, that if a cat has a tipped or notched ear, this indicates it is part of a Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR) program and rescue groups will make every attempt to locate the caretaker of the cat.
