The big cooperative trapping is underway! The mobile spay/neuter clinic has been reserved and will show up on Tuesday, so today’s goal was to trap 30 cats! 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 area in one subdivision. There are way more than 30 cats roaming around in this section of land. A few volunteers came out a few months ago and TNR’ed about 30 cats, which helped make a dent in the population but there are plenty more remaining to be TNR’ed.

Large lots and lots of trees make lots of space for cats to hide.


Look at how the cats taunt us!ct10

They sit out in the open and watch us rather than go into the traps!


I call this guy Sparky, he kept a close eye on me




Sparky was already eartipped and he’s somewhat friendly.

ct5When everyone else was busy doing something else, I worked on making friends with Sparky!


Sparky’s scoping out the supply stash


Why go for the little bit of food in the trap when you can go right to the source!



In the end, 30 more cats were trapped and are ready for the mobile spay/neuter clinic to arrive first thing in the morning.

    I know I’m boring when I keep on meowing this to you all but you are angels. Pure angels.
