About a month ago Almost Home received a phone call from a man who was in need of help. He had a cat who had arrived in his yard in the winter. He began feeding her and discovered she had given birth to a litter of kittens under his shed.
Almost Home receives many phone calls similar to this one, but there were certain characteristics that warranted Almost Home to step up and help. Dianna (a dedicated volunteer at Almost Home) took on the case. The man was allergic to cats and unfamiliar with how to handle them. He was willing to donate money but a very important factor was that he was willing to allow the mamma to continue to reside in his yard after her spay.
The case seemed easy enough, but in time it proved to be larger than anyone anticipated. 8 cats have been trapped so far and there are still more.
We at Almost Home, never give up. No matter what the case we always see it to completion.
All the cats need to be tested, vaccinated, spay or neutered and those that are feral will be released to a farm that Almost Home has a relationship with. Cats that are adoptable will be welcomed into Almost Home’s cattery to find forever homes.
This challenging effort will take time, and money. We are asking for donations to this case- any help will be appreciated.
Please help if you can. Every penny makes a difference!
