Kittens, Kittens Everywhere…

I’m VERY happy to report that we recently succeeded in trapping and altering 17 of the projected 19 cats that we had hoped to get on our TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return). The mix consisted of three males and 14 females, four of which were pregnant. In all, we were forced to prematurely terminate the pregnancies of 18 unborn kittens, which is tragic on one level, but unfortunately necessary on another. We were able to raise $200 of the needed $255, which is fantastic. Sam and I covered the remaining portion.

In addition to the 17 adult cats that we altered, we located and placed 38 kittens in foster homes. We attended an event put on by Circle L Ranch (a wonderful nonprofit rescue group) to find homes for these kittens. We succeeded in placing 15 of the 15 we took down there. As the remaining 23 are too small to be altered, (the largest is only 1 ½ lbs), we were forced to foster them until they are old enough to be spayed/neutered, vaccinated and adopted. Our neighbor has taken on this HUGE task and is doing a fantastic job of socializing them! They are all adorable and very friendly and we have every hope that we will be able to place them in loving homes. If you are interested in adopting any of them, please contact me through Petsweekly@gmail.com immediately (see pictures in slide show for availability).

We hope to attempt trapping and neutering the two remaining males that we know about within the next month. In the meantime, we need to find homes for the little ones pictured above, so please let me know if you’re interested in a new kitten! 🙂
