Animal Rescue Connections is so grateful to Hill Country Animal League for all the help. Another 15 cats will be spayed/neutered today, which almost completes the “fixing” part of this project. We have just one more elusive cat to persuade into a trap and, unless, we find more hiding somewhere, we can at least relax knowing no more kittens will be emerging from hiding places. Many thanks also to Jeri and Lynda of Bulverde Area Humane Society, who evaluated the nursing kittens
So, the 7 traps left at the house to trap the LAST 7 cats were filled with 15 cats Monday morning. We know there is ONE more to trap so we are now up to 77 (including the elusive one). This 15 are going in to be spayed/neutered Tuesday. Many thanks to Jan and Rosemary who are sharing the transport, and also JJ and the staff at Hill Country Animal League in Boerne who have been incredible throughout this nightmare. The hero mama cat trying to feed 11 kittens has some help now
The number of cats from Aunty's House is now at 61. Many thanks to the volunteers who are keeping this bubbling. 22 kittens brought in yesterday with three mamas but they are not coping with the need for milk. Eleven of these kittens are still nursing. We need bottle-feeders. If you can help, please let us know: firstname.lastname@example.org. Although we have volunteers signed up for this week, it would be wonderful if others could pitch in and give our stalwarts a break.
Well, so far so good. At the latest count, Animal Rescue Connections (ARC) is dealing with 59 cats at a house in Spring Branch. o 22 cats were trapped Sunday and fixed Monday. Of those, 8 adults were returned to the house Wednesday. BAHS took in 3 kittens although the shelter already was full, 2 cats were taken to a feral colony, 1 cat is in quarantine for ear mites and failure to thrive, and 8 kittens (3-6 months old) are being cared for while we try to find them new homes
On the road at 6 a.m. today with the next 13 cats from the Aunty's House project. With the 22 done earlier this week, that makes 35 that have been fixed so far. Hill Country Animal League in Boerne has been so supportive, helping get these large numbers spayed/neutered. We would have brought more in today but ran out if traps. I am guessing there are about 8 more in the main house still to get. Yesterday, we discovered another box in the bedroom with 11 kittens (2 litters of
Successful trapping this morning. Thank goodness for the help from star volunteers, Jan and Willie. Twenty-two cats in traps ready for feeding and labeling this afternoon, if anyone is available to help. Probably another 5 adults still to trap (ran out of traps so have to find some more to take back over there). Also, there are 3 nursing mamas with 18 kittens in a back bedroom. Have to wait a few weeks until kittens are weaned. Phew! I'm off for a strong cup of coffee! #TNR #
