quiet times

Things have been rather quiet on the TNR front for me lately. I think I’ve needed a bit of a break after my last TNR project (BP site) where the mama cat escaped. Since then, I did receive an update on the four kitten girls that were relocated from that same site. They are all doing wonderfully! The barn they have to live in is amazing, with lots of great kitty spots. It’s the perfect location for a relocated cat and their caretakers are diehard cat lovers, so they will be well spoiled! The caretaker recently reported seeing all four of them hanging out together! That makes me happy.

Other than that, I have been learning a lot about the fostering and the adoption process. Hershey is available for adoption now and I took him to a local adoption event this past weekend. I wrote about the experience on my fourwhitepaws┬áblog. It’ll be sad to say goodbye to him but I’ll also be happy knowing he will have found a home where he will be adored.

I was talking with a TNR person recently who let me know she is planning a large cooperative trapping for sometime in February. I think she said she wants to get 40 cats! That’s a lot of cats! I’m starting to think about organizing a large scale trapping in my more immediate area for late winter/early spring. There is no shortage of feral cats needing to be altered.

    It is kind of nice to hear that things are quiet.
    I would like to find homes for some of mine and it would be hard to let them go, but if it was a good home, I would be happy for the cat. That would so great to catch 40 cats and get them fixed. Have a great day.

  2. keep up the good work….for all the hard parts of it – it is so rewarding!!! thanks for the update on the girls….

  3. You are doing such a great job with the TNR. Can you tell me about the ear tipping? I have a friend who is feeding a feral cat and I saw ‘her’ and one of her ear tips is missing. Does this mean ‘she’ is fixed? Can’t get close enough to check the cat out.

    hugs, Linda

      If the cat is properly tipped, then yes, it means the cat has been neutered or spayed by a vet. By properly tipped, I mean it’s a fairly straight line and is obvious that it wasn’t caused from a fight or an injury.

    It’s good to have some quiet times sometimes. Let’s us rest up after the frantic ones. Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrs.
