In November of 2013 I relocated three feral cats to our colony, they had nowhere else to go, they were from a massive hoarding situation and sadly were not adoptable. It was my first (and last) try at relocating. Amazingly they all stuck around, but one was killed the following spring by a dog, the other two didn't join the other cats and went to separate spots. Unfortunately Bonnie chose her home to be under Rupert's studio, and he has become increasingly unhappy with her being there, mostly because she poos there. He keeps sealing it up and she keeps getting in. Clearly she feels safe there.
You may remember that Clara went to live at a sanctuary. She's doing very well there and Gerri can even pat her briefly when she's eating. Gerri kindly offered to take Bonnie as well, so I've been trying to trap her to no avail. Today, though, I got out the drop trap and she went under right away. Bonnie will be vetted and then go off to her new home in the country. I feel sad seeing her go, but she had no life cowering under a building all the time.
I had a day last week that between our cats, ferals and my catsitting clients, I fed 55 cats!
