Trapping totals for the week: eight cats. Jessica managed to get three more from her Scarborough colony, seven there, five males and two females (both of whom were pregnant).
Closer to home, at the DD colony, I only got the one girl (also pregnant) who I've named Mandy. Turns out Mandy is not at all feral, in recovery at Joanne's she showed her true colours, purring away and happy to be patted. Time for a new life for Mandy, no more outside eating raw meat behind dumpsters.

It's always a double edged sword when they turn out to be tame, it's great but it means finding a foster home and then a home.
Today I fed at my colony plus two others, also tried to find a mother cat and kittens who were seen yesterday just around the corner from my colony. Oh, and took four of my cats to the vet and picked up shelters for the Scarborough colony. All cat stuff all the time. Time for a drink and a movie.
It feels like it's way too early for all these pregnant cats, didn't we have a hard winter, it sure felt like it. I hate spay aborts but hate the alternative way worse.
My resolution for this year in order to help as many cats as I can and come out the other side is stick to my geographic region, the travel time doing Maria's colony last year killed me.
I loved the feel of spring today but that means it's kitten season, god help us all.
