Start a Feral Cat TNR program in your neighborhood!
This is one of my favorite photos of all time! These two cuties, Hope and Penny, are 2 of the very first feral cats that Brian and I had spayed in Atlanta several years ago. I still remember that cold night and how nervous i was about trapping. We have come a long way since then, but these two girls represent how our experience, knowledge, patience and PASSION started and continues to grow. Yes, Penny and Hope live on the street (not ideal, of course), but we witnessed firsthand how much healthier and happier they became once they were spayed. Not to mention, no more kittens would be born to die or suffer or grow up on the streets as well.
Now, after TNRing 100+ cats, we are still witnessing the positive effects of spaying and neutering and hope that we can continue to make a bigger difference. We have big dreams for this country progressing toward being a NO KILL nation and we have to believe that it is possible if everyone does their part. Please think about helping the feral/stray/barn/wild cats in your community. It is so important.
Early this week, i will be blogging about the cats and kittens we trapped here in Lexington this weekend. I thought it might be helpful to write about the process in detail.
