Our 28 cats consisted of 9 males and 19 females.
This brought our numbers so far to 129 females and 109 males--a grand total of 238 done for 2017. Last year at this time we were at 158 cats (81 females and 77 males).
We plan on continuing these events and already have many scheduled!
We have been helping with the Mall cats here in Defiance. Another male cat was caught yesterday and is on the neuter schedule for today. He will have his ear tipped and returned to his home where the rest of his cat family is. We will continue to try and get this colony neutered (have 2 done now from there).
We took on a new cat. His name is Guddu (pronounced Gu-du--a name from the recent Lion movie). He's an old fella and was found outside sleeping on a bed of stones. Poor boy---he's so thin, had major fleas and worms and very bad teeth. He actually doesn't have many teeth left but will need the remaining to be looked at. He's a brown tiger and must have been a magnificently large boy in his prime. His feet are big and his legs are long. He apparently lost his home when his elderly mama had to go into assisted living. He's now in the Cat's Corner Room and will be out and about soon.
We have had 2 adoptions.
Annabelle did indeed leave on Saturday. She went to a home where she is the sole cat (which she will love!) and a new mama that has tons of love to give. And then to add to that, there's a huge porch she can go to where she can watch the birds, deer and squirrels come up to feeders. I do believe Annabelle has landed in a wonderful home!
Tabitha---yes, our Tabitha that has been with us for quite some time. She went home with our volunteer Connie D. Connie has been smitten with Tabitha for a long time. I've already seen some pictures and it looks like she's going to slide right in to her new home! I'm so very happy for both Connie and Tabitha.
We had BOXES last night! Such a lot of fun and gratitude from me to you!
