Back to Cat Chat
Last weekend, we were able to trap 2 feral female cats in our area...one that dines on our front porch and one from a nearby warehouse area. Yeah for those girls...no spring kittens for them! One is a tabby bobtail and the other is a silver tabby...both young but almost full grown. I will be working on getting the last few who frequent our porch very soon. Then, i have to hit the stockyards again and a big colony that lives behind a Burlington Coat Factory in town. I am thinking about starting a map of the cat colonies here so that i can document them and really follow what's going on. I think this would help in getting the city to understand the problem and provide us with a proper low cost, high volume spay/neuter clinic. We need one here desperately!!
These are photos of our back patio kitties. They were so scared of us when we first moved in 6 months ago and now they rarely leave the patio and love to be petted and given chin scratches :). Missy is the gray torti and those are her almost full grown sons, Magee and Joe B. We love them to death. I give them 3 meals a day and they have 2 feral villas, 3 soft cubbies and a down comforter to keep them warm.
