Finding balance

The more I get involved into TNR the more I like it. It’s rewarding in many ways. The challenge now is learning how to decide how many projects I can take on while also maintaining my sanity and life. There will always more cats that need to be trapped and altered than I have ability to help with.

I’m aware of a small project not far from here that I’m thinking about taking on. However, I’m not completely done with my big RH project, the Siamese mom is still out there and there is a family that has a few unaltered cats that keep having babies. Both of those loose ends need to be wrapped up yet, so is it wise to start another project with that one still outstanding?

I think my goal is to have my hand in a project here and there while also still being able to get all my other work done. The TNR work is work and yet it’s life giving. It requires having time to check traps and transport cats. I’m sure with more experience I will learn how to juggle all the work and hold onto a doable work schedule too. I sure hope so, because I want to do more for the community cats.

For now, I just need to be patient as I’m sure achieving that balance will take time.

  1. Yep – it can be tough. We see suffering and want to help, but you have to know your limits…….

  2. I am sure you will be able to figure it all out! You are amazing! :)

    You sound like you have a busy life to begin with without the TNR projects. But if you feel strongly enough about doing this, and I know you do, you will figure out how and when you can do it. As time permits.
