Last week, between all of the turmoil of dealing with Sister Kit, the Dad and Sandy, from Kitten Action Team, took another go at the TNR thing. Sorry, we just didn’t have time for photos this time around.
Just as a recap, the last two times out we trapped the neighbor cat Tiger, who was one of the first ones to go into the trap well over a year ago. So, neighbor Tiger had been trapped a total of three times now. Last time out, in addition to Tiger, we also trapped Nick, who is one of our ferals, but he was trapped and fixed a while back. I think all of the ferals, except Nick, were getting a kick out of this, and they were winning the TNR game.
All this time, we’ve wanted to trap sweet feral Zelda, who has been here a while and has already had two litters of kittens. Last season we trapped and fixed her kittens, but Zelda would not go in the trap. The Dad actually saw her leaning up against the trap taking a snoozy one time, but go in it she would not. Well, last Tuesday Zelda went in the trap. Success! We also trapped one of her brother cats. We were so glad to get Miss Zelda, finally, after too many attempts to count. The brother was actually in the same trap with Zelda. That may seem odd, two in one trap, but if you would see them in our backyard, they literally go everywhere together, so when Zelda went in the trap, so did her brother. His name is TC (talky cat).
Zelda came back home last Friday (her brother came home earlier) and took off for the woods when we released her. We hadn’t see her at all, until this past Monday morning when she came for breakfast. She has settled into her regular routine once again. We are so thankful that sweet girl won’t be a Mama again!
Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
