Yesterday, I trapped 7 cats in humane traps and took them to One of a Kind Pets for spay/neutering. I have been reading about Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) and have been coached by some local rescuers on the process, so it went fairly well. The cats went into the traps fairly quickly, enticed by food.
The process was stressful for the cats. These are basically wild animals that were caged – not a comfortable thing for them. Nonetheless, it is an important and humane activity, as spay/neutering has many benefits for them, in addition to containing the colony population.
The Torbie cat featured today was the first to go into a trap. She calmed down when a towel was draped over her trap. She was such a beautiful creature, I was compelled to draw her.
