Every new year's I like to do a little year end in review, and 2014 was certainly not lacking in stuff going on. With the colony, all spayed and neutered and aging, most of the news is sad. Every day when I see my ferals and they look healthy I'm happy but every year we lose a few and 2014 was no exception.
Teddy the big old patriarch was having issues with his ears, bleeding and clearly sore. The only solution was very expensive surgery. We did an on-line fundraising campaign and thanks to people's generosity, raised enough funds for the surgery but sadly the old cat died a few weeks afterwards.

Things were busy on the rescue side too. About 25 TNRs, a dozen tame adults rescued and homed, and 50+ kittens. Joanne gets the most kittens fostered award, she didn't even want to foster kittens, but had a litter in her bathroom almost the entire year, she still has two! Some of the kittens were feral rescues, some came from Niagara Falls and I helped a woman in Bowmanville with almost 40 cats and kittens.
