After stumbling upon a big feral cat colony in Sunset Park where none of the adults are fixed, we've been working to try and grab all of the adoptable kittens before they get too old to be socialized or sick from the elements. (Adults will be trapped and neutered as soon as we're able to get some spay/neuter spots at the ASPCA!). And let's just say, there were a whole lot of kittens born this summer. Soma's grabbed eight so far, and we know of at least two more still hiding out at the house.
Everyone on the block has been really supportive and wonderful about the cats and care deeply about them, so we're really happy to help get the adults neutered so they can live out their lives without worrying about raising families. If you'd like to help out, there are lots of ways to get involved!
Foster Young Kittens
We could really use some kitten fosters! If you're interested in fostering a pair of 5-6 week old kittens for a few weeks until they can get fixed, vetted, and adopted, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
And if you're interested in adopting right away, one of the older kittens from the colony, Clementine, was just neutered and vetted and is ready to go home. He's about 4 months old, tested negative for FIV/FeLV and is a very handsome and sweet little creamsicle! Send us an email if you'd like to meet him!
Support Cat Republic!
If you're not able to foster or adopt but would like to help out with supplies and medicine for the kittens (they're hungry!) by making a donation to our nonprofit Cat Republic, we'd be ever so appreciative! We also have an Amazon wish list with some of the kitten's favorites.
