Here is Charlie waiting for his neutering appt this morning
the only pic left to. take of my street Ferals is Blacky (Bear)
He is a beautiful long hair black cat, he is a very cautious cat tho a pic is hard.
He is! and even tho he was the bully he is quite sweet too! I got to carry him to the warming room
as I ended up volunteering, they neutered 70 cats yesterday!! my friend trapped 7 cats.
lots more need neutering tho!!!
met lots of nice people, a common thing about people that care for Ferals they are awesome people!
Wow!!! That is awesome!! They are very very lucky kitties! My only advice is to keep food away from the shelters. You do not want to attract other wildlife (especially coyotes). I know food is often thought to be great to lure cats to their shelters, but it really can back fire. You can still feed them nearby, just not in the shelters or outside of the shelters.
Thanks! I hope they come soon! tomorrow will be a good day as I don't have to rush to work
I will not feed at the shelter and I always pickup the food before sundown!
Thanks to my husband it came out just like the picture I drew!
I have been working the cats over to the shelter, I have a big door on the side which I have
been leaving open so they can check it out without getting scared.
I recently closed that door as it is getting colder and we are starting to get rain, Sammy
went into the shelter yesterday to check it out but Tex did not.
I'm second guessing myself on the 4 inch openings that I have created, Tex is bigger than Sammy
Can all cats get into a 4 inch opening?
Yes, I did. I would make them a bit bigger. It's always best to keep it as small as possible so you did the right thing by trying it small!! Just make one or two of them a bit bigger and see if that helps. With the feral kitties, tweaks are always necessary!!
You also could reduce the amount of straw to start with if they aren't using them. You can then add more later when they are more used to the shelter.
Thanks Shadow! I will move some boards tomorrow and yes tweaks are always necessary! Always learning!
I was wondering about the poofy straw, I think I had a visitor in the last bin as the straw is a little matted!
I will remove some straw-Thanks!
hee hee I bought 4 bales of straw thinking 1 for each bin, didn't even use a whole bale!
