BP site

I’ve recently started a new TNR project. This one came to my attention from another volunteer in the Community Cat Coalition, Penny. Several reports of community cats, struggling to make a living. One person has reported 5 kittens, 5-6 months old and another person reported several adults and a few kittens. So, I’m guessing there […]

I recently had the privilege to attend a class on how to successfully relocate feral cats to barn homes. The class was organized by the Community Cat Coalition (CCC) and was taught by Nancy, my TNR mentor. As with all the TNR classes I have taken from the CCC, this one was very informative and […]
