Mom went to a TNR workshop Saturday. She is now a registered caretaker & our colony will be started with TNR as soon as she can borrow a few more traps. She bought 2 on sale real cheap at Harbor Freight, and then she can set 5 out to try & get the 5 that come by the most to start. The place they are taken to will spay/neuter, deworm, antibiotics, pain med, clean & treat any wounds, microship & 3 yr rabies. They ask for a donation of $30 per cat, but the lady said that with the # of kitties we have, she does not expect that much - anything we can do. mom will donate 1 trap back & keep 1 for any odd kitties that might come into the colony. For once, she said she feels in control of the situation. There is even a place that 2x a month will give some food to registered colony caretakers! So right now, we have 1 trap out there unset so they can get used to it, and then as soon as we get the other ones, it is trap day! Will keep you posted.
