Original Post

A most beautimous colony of around fifteen pet (not feral) cats was recently abandoned when their guardian died. Jacquie and Kate have done a sterling job of gathering the wee ones together and getting them to safety. RAWR (Rural Animal Welfare Resources) funded the project and I popped down to drop off some traps and cages, and help for a few hours, last week.

Contact 085 774 3549 if you’d like to know more about any of these lovely pusses – they’d love to hear from you. Text if you get no immediate reply and Jennifer will get back to you as soon as she can.

All the pusses, varying in ages from around six months to several years, are a bit discombobulated by their change in circumstances – some are super friendly, a few are still shy, all will come round in no time as they’ve been handled from birth. They’re a wee bit on the thin side. But all are healthy and snarfing their food, so will put the weight back on in no time.

There’s tuxedoes, calicoes, torties – a beautimous extended family, who will be looking for their forever homes soon. Some have been booked already.

When I visited Kate’s to see her five yesterday, the sun was sharing it’s warmths, the flowers were blooming and we decided springtime names were in order. So we’ve:

  • Manuka – a lovely, friendly tuxedo girl
  • Blue Blood/BB – a lovely, friendly tuxedo boy – named for the rare blue blood moon we had recently (his debonair blue blood tuxedo look)
  • Daffodill/Daff/Dilly – is warming up, a beautiful tortioseshell girl
  • Bridgit – a calico beauty, who’s warming up quickly – especially if fresh cooked chicken is involved
  • Spring – spring is another stunning tortie – but she is missing an eye (only now treated by a vet) and has a wound on her chest. She is feeling very sorry for herself, but we’re confident she’ll come round as she starts to heal. She’ll be looking for a very special home.

Note – while I’d normally recommend Trap Neuter RETURN, not Trap Neuter Adopt, in this instance there is no-one to care for the colony – and they are all used to being pets, with free-range indoor/outdoor access. They couldn’t stay where they were. So they’ll be looking for their new homes soonest.
