Steenhouwersgaarde in The Hague is the 200th so-called 'Lief en Leedstraat' in The Hague, the municipality said in a press release.

Lief and Leedstraten are an initiative against loneliness.

The cats are caught, microchipped and neutered and returned to a suitable environment.

A distinction between stray and domestic cats is made thanks to chips, which have recently been implanted free of charge in the domestic cats of Texel residents.

Texel is tackling the nuisance caused by stray cats in nature reserves this weekend with the 'Fish & Chip' campaign.
