Marianne says: This is Peter. Peter was found living in a very bad backyard situation, sharing a filthy living space with over 35 cats and kittens. Helen Sanders CatPAWS was asked to help with trapping, neutering, spaying and releasing the feral cats that were there. Peter was a handful of kittens that we found who were young enough to be socialized. This is Peter after we brought him in and nursed him back to health. The second picture is of Peter when we first found him. Filthy dirty, severely dehydrated and covered in fleas. He had a horrible URI (as did all the kittens that we rescued from there). Peter, Wyatt
, whom you have already met here at GMK, and Sissy, in particular, were verging on life and death. We took them all in and did what we had to do to save their lives. They are all back to full health and Wyatt has since been adopted.
We rescued and kept the kittens that we could socialize, and we trapped, fixed, and released the other cats from the backyard. The woman who contacted us to help her is continuing to feed the cats that have been released. None of the cats we rescued were hers; they were coming from somewhere across the alley from and she was feeding them. She is happy that she now has a 'contained' colony where the cats will be able to live out their lives without the worries of any pregnancies.
Helen Sanders CatPAWS has a wonderful TNR (trap and release) program, and we were proud to have helped. We wanted to share three of our most recent success stories, so we present you with Peter, Wyatt, and (tomorrow) Sissy.
