Here's the link: http://www.catster.com/group/grp_page.php?g=179
In this group, we invite you to discuss your own feral colony and/or TNR program. We especially invite those curious about TNR ("Trap-Neuter-Return") to join and find out about the concept -- and learn what you can do to reduce the stray/feral cat population in your area.

I was minding my own business, chasing the red bug,* when suddenly I found myself in a small box that I couldn't get out of. I tried! But then Mom came in and -- I don't know what was happening but it was like I was flying. Before I knew it I was inside that small box in a loud place with strange noises and even stranger smells. I was in there for a long time. I was so scared. I had to pee, and I knew there was a dirt box for me, but I was afraid to I move. I wondered where all my buddies were, especially my sister, Skittles. I cried for her the most. I cried for her all night. I couldn't sleep. I wanted to get out! But it was of no use.
In the morning, the noises got loud again. Then other people grabbed me! I was so scared!! And all of a sudden it was like I was waking up. I went from being held by strangers to waking up. It was weird. I was so sleepy, but it was so noisy. And my ear hurt, and my tummy hurt, and my shoulder hurt.
I kept seeing people faces, and one in particular spoke to me with a really sweet voice, just like Mom. I wanted her to know I appreciated it, but I was too scared and sick to move.
I wanted to go home, but the night came again. I cried for Skittles. And I cried for Mom, because even though she's a person, I thought I'd be in that lonely place forever and that she was never coming back.
In the morning, not long after the noises got loud again, Mom came back! I don't know how -- I kinda flew again, and for a short time I was in this super noisy place that I really hated. But I could hear Mom's voice, and I could smell her, and I knew -- I just knew -- she was taking me home. And I was right!
Now, my tummy still hurts a little, but it's getting better. And it itches! Do you know they took all my fur off there? The other cats have been making fun of me. My shoulder doesn't hurt anymore, but my ear!! Half my left ear is gone!! No wonder it hurts so much! I saw myself in the mirror and almost attacked myself until I realized it was me!
Where is the other half of my ear, Mom?!
