a report of kittens

Not long after wrapping up the previous project, we got a call from a resident of a large apartment complex. She feeds 4-5 adults and had just recently seen a kitten. So, we drove out to assess the site. It’s a large apartment complex that borders a mobile home community. A fence separates the two […]

success

This project is now as done as done can be for the moment. TNR is so much easier when you have the cooperation and assistance from the property owner. With this project, we had the blessing to be on the property and to TNR the cats but that was about it. It’s nice when the […]

trapping challenges

The scope of the TNR project was unclear from the start. One report was 1 mom and 4-5 kittens, another person said 10-12 cats, many of them kittens and another person figured there were a lot more. Not knowing what I was in for, I borrowed 12 traps and made 12 s/n appointments, 10 for […]

cooperative trapping – day 2

Tuesday was spay/neuter day for the project. The Community Cat Coalition received a nice grant to cover spay and neuter surgeries, so we were able to get the Pasado’s mobile spay/neuter clinic to come onsite to handle all the surgeries. How awesome is that! I learned that Pasado’s actually has two of these mobile clinics […]

The fun started in the early morning and by the time I arrived around midday, 18 cats were already trapped. The project is spread out over a large […]

talk to the neighbors

One of the little things we do when we are working a TNR project is to talk with the neighbors. It’s good to find out from a neighborhood perspective how many cats there are and who is feeding them. It also gives us a chance to educate about TNR and inquire if they happen to […]
