On Saturday I loaded up the car for my last TNR mission until spring. I find it too hard in the winter, the traps are cold, the garage where I hold the cats before the clinic is cold, it's dark and I worry about putting back females with shaved bellies. So for the winter I focus on feeding, that's a hard enough thing when the real winter sets in. Ian and I set off for North York, stopping at Jet Fuel and then Petsmart on the way. I loaded up on litter and Friskies on sale. Laden down, we continued on our way.
Sadly our mission was not successful. The two older kittens that were our quarry were there when we arrived but then disappeared not to return. I've had a lot of drama at work lately and it's distracting me, I often like to say I'm a gladiator, and I really need to stay focused. Less than three weeks to my big event, lots to get done.
I almost forgot to report that the fantastic trapping team managed to get all four cats out of that demolition site just in time!
