I haven't posted in a while

Most of us were sick or incredibly busy over the winter, but kitten season is here. In the last five days, two people have called with neonatal kittens that were likely abandoned by their mothers. One is approximately 4 weeks old, and the other is maybe 2 weeks old and doesn't even have teeth yet. Thankfully Emily is a saint and is taking care of both of them. I was going to take Gutter off her hands now that he has recovered from dehydration, but we both agree the little one will probably do better with an older buddy to keep warm.

The GREAT news is that three of the Como brood were adopted. Enid, Fred, and Russ all went to new homes and are doing great. Como still needs to find his #furever home. He's neutered and UTD on shots. He's a very sweet boy and would love to be someone's lap cat. Did I mention that he's an awesome ratter too? He WAS adopted, but the family had allergy issues so he came back to me.

UPDATE: Como is going to his new home today (4/10/19)!

If you would like to donate toward our vet expenses, we would appreciate the assistance. Kitten season is here, and we are going to be overwhelmed with calls for help in the next three months. Most strays have worms and usually another parasite or two, including fleas. If we are lucky they don't have anything more serious that requires urgent care or euthanization. We get ALL animals in our care vetted and spayed/neutered when the time is right.

My house has long been a stray cat magnet. I don't know if they smell the cat food, or if people drop them off because they know I'm going to take care of them. Four of the five cats I currently have were strays. I recently set up a trail cam on my porch to get an accurate count of how many cats I'm actually feeding. I've seen two extra cats and one very fat raccoon so far, so I'm hoping to get pictures. This is not just a problem at my house, though. All over town you see cats and kittens dashing between the shadows or foraging in dumpsters. I've picked up kittens off the side of country roads and gotten them a new home or to a rescue. I've decided it's time to make my actions official and start a non-profit dedicated to managing the feral cat population with TNR (trap, neuter, release), and finding homes for feral kittens and stray adults. You can read more about the difference between stray and feral cats here . To that end, I'm going to need

Well, the past two weeks have been interesting...

On 4/5 I got a call that there was a kitten at Dunlap & Kyle that needed to be picked up. They have no idea how he got there, and he was only about 4 weeks old at the time. They named him Gutter, because they found him in the parking lot gutter. The same day I got another frantic call from Morris Lawn Service about a kitten that was found in the back of one of their work trucks. He turned out to be about 2 weeks old. Emily took both of them and they are doing really well.   Monday 4/8 someone threw 4 kittens out on the side of Bell Road in a box. They were no more than 2-3 days old. They are in with a nursing mom in Sardis and are thriving. On Thursday I got a call about a friendly stray someone let in so she could have her kittens in safety. I've been trying to save room in our Caternity Ward for cats who are in immediate danger, but I'm really glad I took her. Saturday, in one of the worst storms we've had in a while, the calico at Walmart that everyone has
