Here in Mesa, there are groups that go around trapping feral cats, neutering them, then returning them to the neighborhoods where they find them. Here is a blurb from the city web site (http://www.mesaaz.gov/animalcontrol/)

Cat Information
If you are feeding free-roaming, wild or feral cats you cannot catch, help is available. The Spay and Neuter Hotline (SNH) has a Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program for feral cats. TNR is the most humane and effective method for stabilizing the feral cat population. Cats are humanely trapped, spayed and neutered, ear-tipped and returned. Weekly clinics are held all throughout the Valley.

I met a woman who does this and her and her colleagues are able to neuter a cat very quickly and efficiently. They apparently strive for bragging rights about how quickly than can neuter a cat. Cats really do help keep the rodent population in check. Of course we have coyotes here in AZ that also keep the cat population in check.
