So my mother-in-law lives in the country near a lake. I’m talking middle of nowhere at least 30 min to the nearest SMALL town. There are TONS of ferals around her out there. There is a house down the road that someone puts food out for them, and they also hang around her land/cabin. She also feeds them. She doesn’t however have the ability or financial means to have them spayed/neutered and unfortunately I’m not in a financial situation to be of much help there either. We are talking 20/30 different cats/kittens that we see coming and going. Moms often come and have litters in her makeshift greenhouse or under their cabin. Several of these litters have been very unhealthy, and many have died soon after being born. We would both like to help stop this problem! But just aren’t sure how. The nearest place that does spay/neuter and return is 2 hours away. They will do it at a discounted rate and pick them up the in the nearest town, but we have to catch and pay for gas and transportation to and from (theirs and ours). And ideas or solutions? I just feel so sorry for these little guys that are struggling and don’t want to continue the feral cat breeding problem! Once I am making more money, I have talked to my husband about driving down and helping her (she lives about 2.5 hrs away from us) but right now we just don’t have a good solution.
