Sterilisation too successful, she said

I received an email this morning from someone who asked whether we were over-zealously sterilising the cats as she realised that the cats in her estate were gone. In fact, one of the cats she wanted to adopt, she said, disappeared. She asked if we might slow down as cats might go extinct otherwise.

I wrote back immediately and told her that she should call up the AVA and her town council. If you do TNRM the cats don't disappear - certainly not immediately, the cats are put back! If they're disappearing, the cats have been caught and it's imperative to try and get them back right away.

If TnR is that successful, we just export cats from overflooded estates!

Yes - that's why sterilisation is a medium to long term solution. It doesn't cut down the cats right away.
