City of Madison Animal Control, in partnership with Altered Feral State (an Oxford, Ga.-based "Trap-Neuter-Release" program that addresses feral cat populations), began the task of decreasing the city's feral cat population Saturday by setting up traps at a private residence and behind Waffle House and Arby's. According to Animal Control officer Cindy Wiemann, the group caught nine cats in all; they were transported to Watkinsville to be spayed and neutered Monday and will be returned to their colonies in Madison Wednesday. Returning the now-altered, feral cats to their colonies will prevent breeding within the colony, but will also keep other cats from joining the colony and growing the overall population.
Denny's has arrived at the Pilot truck stop on Eatonton Rd. as part of a nation-wide partnership between the two companies. The store opened on Wednesday, October 7 and district manager Marion Harrell said that business has been good since then.
"We're putting Denny's in several Pilot locations," Harrell said, "and Madison was picked because of its location at I-20, 441 and GA129, all major thoroughfares.
The restaurant is never closed and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner 24-hours daily.
