Mancat Monday: TNR = The Neighbor Returns

Brian's Home. Adopt cats, we deserve it!
Hello everyone, I hope you had a terrific weekend, we did, but it was a bit rainy.  There’s supposed to be more rain coming this week too.  Okay, enough with the weather, let’s get on with the headline news.

As you might remember, we had another TNR round last week, two actually.  The first round on Tuesday evening, the score was Cats 1 and Dad 0.  Nobody even went near the traps.  It was a bit windy and the newspaper in the bottom of the traps kept blowing up. Then came round 2 on Wednesday evening.  Dad heard some meowing coming from one of the traps so we thought things were looking up.

Back when we started our TNR project well over a year ago, the neighbor cat Tiger was the first to go in the trap after the food.  You guessed it, the meowing was coming from Tiger the neighbor cat.  Apparently she’s a slow learner.  So, the second night the score was Cats 1 and Dad 0.  The two day total is Cats 2 and Dad 0.  We were hoping to give it another go this week, but the rain might literally put a damper on our plans.

DANG!  But that’s the way it goes.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Oh darn, what a bummer! I hope it doesn’t rain too much, and your human can get back to work with the TNRing!

Well at least it was the neighbor’s cat and not a possum or skunk. That has happened to the Mom when she did TNR. We hope for better luck next time.

Better luck next time!

Our weekend weather was an odd mix. Some sunniness, but some bad storms passed by us to the northwest last night.

drat (though it did make mom laugh….sometimes the joy of catching is offset by the defeat of the cat who hasn’t learned their lesson)

Bummer on the rain but we will cross our paws for success the next time. Hope that rain is short-lived. We have the potential for severe storms this week so Mom will be on Ciara watch again.

We hope you can give the TNR another go this week. I think we may get more snow this week – I wish Spring would make its way here and stay for a while!

Oh no! TW hadn’t seen any ferals aroound our parts for a few months so she donated all her extra food to PAWS. Wouldn’t you know, this week she saw a big orange tabby on the same block as the Maple Cats. He meowed when he saw her so she went into her bag for a can of food. By the time she opened it, she didn’t see him so she left it under the car. The next day the food was gone so she threw away the empty. On her way home, she saw orange tabby again. He meowed… Read more »

Sounds like those ferals are out-smarting you. At least you haven’t caught any skunks, possums or raccoons. That’s what would happen here. Hope things pick up after the rain. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
