Working to Rescue and Reduce Proliferation of Stray Cats

Animalkind received the report and started to help:

My town is requesting to start to work on the stray cat problem. People are concerned and want to help.

I went to look at the situation today. I was told that a couple kittens are living under the town restaurant's refrigerated room and coming out to play around the parked cars in front of the building. I actually found the whole family - mother calico, father black with partly missing tail, and three 6-8 week old kittens (gray, black and orange).

They are all very shy but appeared for food. They are being fed by the locals. A very sweet elderly man (retired policeman) came by to feed them while I was there. I will work on trapping this family first.

I then took a look at the barn cats which are the source of the growing population in town. I saw 12 cats while I was there. Most were a year or less. I'd say many were around 6 months. There were several very attractive calicos and Maine coons. All are shy, but hopefully with some work the youngest ones could find homes??? They appear in pretty good shape and I'm told they are being fed in the barn.

Can you please put me on the spay/neuter list for the next available clinic and I'll see if I can trap a few. I'll try to get the 3 kittens to you first.
