New Foster Kitty -Adopted

When I was trying to trap a YMCA kitty this fella came right up to me. Declawed and out roaming the streets.  I had to scoop him up so he would not get trapped, so I brought him home and posted him on craigslist.  You think someone would be missing him.  After a few weeks here and no one claiming him, he found a new home with a young couple.  They named him Garfield and just love him to bits!!

YMCA TNR - 2012

Returned this little darling and went back to get her brother.

He was hard to trap but after an hour and a half wait, I got him.
He was fiesty, but recovered and returned to his home in the large bushes by the gym.
I go feed them every morning when I go workout.  They had all their shots, dewormed deflead and no more babies for this crew.  They are happy to be back in the wild after the terrible cage time after surgery.  I wish I could afford to get all the kitties TNR'd at the neighboring park.  I am sure there are new babies.  But, these 3 cost me $500! YEOUCH!  My husband just lost 5k to a bad deal with some partners, so my part time job is not always enough to get all these wild cats fixed.  I sure wish they had better programs for people like me.  Akron is far and they leave them in the trap over night before they even fix them.  I prefer as little trama to these cats as possible, but financially I do not think I can afford that luxury.

2012 TNR - Getting a head start

The first TNR's of the year. Two pregnant females from the YMCA in Louisville.
There is one more there to get real soon incase she is pregnant too.
These kitties are recovering in large dog kennels for a couple days, then they will be returned to the where they were caught.  The vet said they were really healthy - that is because I feed them every day!
I hope they can be as healthy for years to come without any incidents from locals.  Some people do not like stray cats.  But I do and beleive that every living thing deserves a chance.  It is up to us!
