This study investigated the long-term transition of community conflict caused by cat breeding, especially the case of `community cats' activity in Isogo, Yokohama-city. In this practice, residents treated `cat problem' as `residents-relation problem' thoroughly to manage community conflict, and established "guideline" including two divided claims (like/dislike cats). To examine the features of the long-term practice, content analysis on volunteers' annual reports from 2001 to 2011 was performed. The results suggested that volunteers faced many difficulties during the `community cats' activity and that appropriate communication in a community is vital in conducting the `community cats' activity.
