Born Free: Feral Cat Drawing #17

There is an orange cat who has been elusive to my trapping process. My hope is that he will be in the next group. I had planned to trap today, but the weather was poor, so I will try again tomorrow.

As far as I can tell, there are 5-6 more to be trapped  from this colony. I have already drawn images of most of them, so I will probably end this series soon.

Unfortunately, I could draw and draw and draw for the rest of my life and still not capture images of all the cats that need attention in my community. The best way to help them is to advocate for people to spay/neuter their pets, and to advocate for proactive community Trap-Neuter-Return TNR programs.

This drawing is #17 in my series of feral cat drawings of a colony of cats with which I am intervening. I am placing each drawing up for auction bids. The details are below. If you would like to contribute to the rescue fund for the real-life cat intervention, you may do so with the ChipIn widget in the sidebar. Thank you for your consideration.

You can read more about the feral cat intervention process on my Okey’s Promise: Art for a Cause blog.

By the way, I am a part of a process to encourage the adoption of a public Trap-Neuter-Return program in the City of Canton in which I live. You can read my letter to the editor on the issue, which was published in the Canton Repository, if you would like. My hope is that many more people will recognize the benefits of TNR as a means of public animal control.
