happy stories

I don’t know about you, but I love stories with heart-warming endings. They are so rare in my line of work, so when I get to experience one, I really treasure it! Today, I have two TNR stories to share with you.

First, remember the four female kittens that we trapped in October at a local park? After they were recovered from their spay surgeries, they were successfully relocated to an amazing barn home.

Their new awesome barn home

We got some pictures of them from their new caretakers. They look very well! I’m thrilled that they have such a wonderful new home and great people looking after them. They join with two other young barn cats and one older veteran barn cat.

It’s especially awesome that these babies got relocated when they did, because about a week after we trapped them, their former park home had flooded over. Now, they have a nice place outside of the harsh winter weather and never have to worry about finding food again.

The second happy ending is not quite an ending, more a happy middle of a story. One of the volunteers in the Community Cat Coalition noticed a cat hanging around her workplace who was looking hungry and uncared for. After feeding her for some time, it became evident the cat was most likely a homeless former pet rather than a feral. With instructions from another member of the CCC, she was able to trap the cat. After only having the cat for two days now, she has been slowly earning her trust.

The cat’s still very scared but today the trapper was able to rub her chin and she purred! Soon, she’ll be spayed and on her way to a new forever home!

TNR work is a lot of work but seeing the fruit of that work is very rewarding.

  1. Yeah for the kitts. Unfortunately, there are more “strays” than ferals out there I think. Glad this girl got caught and a second chance….

    Looks like a nice dry, warm and cozy barn with lots of architecture to keep them all interested.
