Basic TNR Class video

I haven’t had much time for trapping cats in this last year but I have continued to teach our regular Basic TNR class for the Community Cat Coalition. This past class, a professional videographer volunteered his time and put together a nice video of the class. If you want to learn how to TNR but […]

Remember the Collared Boy from the recent TNR site I helped with? I told you about him a few weeks ago, he had settled into my garage space. I had hopes of him being adopted into a cushy forever home. I’ve been working with him in hopes he can be re-homed, although he’s not making […]

One big dude in particular was very […]

Saturday was a long day of TNR. Traps were set and then we waited. And waited. This is in a neighborhood with a lot of active children. Kids can make trapping challenging as they can scare away the cats, but they can also provide lots of information about the cats. If anyone is going to […]

reconnaissance

I’ve written in the past about the benefit of using a trail camera to identify cats. In the case of this large site I’ve been working on, we set up the camera first focused on some food overnight after we had trapped a bunch of cats so we could figure out who is still coming […]

babies and more babies!

It was a busy weekend of TNR activities at the mobile home community I’ve been working on. We started trapping early last week in one lot and already have trapped 2 kittens and 7 adults. On Saturday, we walked around the community, gathering information about the community cats. You know it’s going to be an interesting day when […]

It’s been a full week of TNR! Lots of checking traps and early morning visits to the spay/neuter clinic. So far, we have trapped nine cats/kittens at this site. Guess what’s in this covered trap? This adorable bundle of fluff! So far we have two 8-week old kittens with more to get yet. Out of the […]
