A Time To Trap
Happy Kitty Wednesday Everyone.
What an exciting week it has been.
On Monday night we all got dressed warm and met to trap some feral kitties.
Our little ferals have been busy bees. They end up in some of the oddest places So…
Mandy, who heads up our scheme had a meeting with the Environment and Safety officer, of the centre last week. We are lucky to have a guy who is understanding of what we are trying to do. We have been noticing that the centre is under going a major “tidy up”. Hedges have been trimmed and there is noticeably less litter around which is a bonus for our kitties as well as the centre.
We scouted the area with the hope of trapping some of our Kitties.
Mandy had just finished setting up the second trap when we saw one of our tabbies darting up to get some food. We were still watching to see where the kitties were coming from and CLANG the first trap shut.
My kids were with me and I am really glad now that they were there to witness an amazing moment.
My son, eager to learn, found out that kitties need to weigh more than 100 grams to be trapped.
The second trap, set and waiting had one of our cheekier, clever cats, fish food out the trap through the bars. BRAT!
Once plate was filled with food AGAIN, we watched as inch by inch our little brat went into the trap and CLANG! Second kittie trapped.
Trapped kitties then took a trip to the SPCA holding cells, to await their morning “snip”.
Mr Fierce, named by Mandy, because he was still growling after his surgery, and Zoe were released yesterday and will no longer be adding litters to the colony.
Meeting Mandy to trap again later today so keep us in your thoughts – and imagine more trapped kitties.
