Yesterday our dream team of myself, Lesley, Susan and Sandi headed northeast an hour out of the city to help out with a mass trapping at a barn. It was a beautiful morning to help cats!
Farmer Ron has a large colony at his farm but wanted to get them spayed and neutered thankfully. Quite a few cats were inside a building and Susan managed to lure many of them into traps and we trapped a few more outside and rescued three little kittens! By the end of it, we had thirteen adults and three kittens to drive back into the city, leaving only a few adults unfixed but there were a lot of calicos and torties in our bunch so lots of females. Sadly most of the kittens who had been born this year had died so we were glad to get the ones we could, there were two other little black kittens we just couldn't catch. We loaded up just before a thunderstorm hit, today they will all be spayed and neutered and then returned in a few days. The farmer seems to genuinely like them and feeds them twice a day. It was definitely well worth the drive!
