Feral Fixers brought in 35 more cats to the PAWS-Chicago Spay/Neuter clinic today to be fixed. 12 of these cats were ferals while the other 23 were friendly ferals. Lots of friendly ferals now over the past few weeks, almost all kittens. If you would be interested in fostering, now would certainly be a good time...
Super-volunteer Charli helped me pick up the cats from Tammy's this morning and take them to PAWS (Thanks Charli!) while super-volunteer Dedra helped me pick up the cats from PAWS this afternoon and bring them back to Tammy's (Thanks Dedra!). Super-volunteer Judy was at Tammy's both this morning and this evening, helping out with everything that needed doing (Thanks Judy!) And, super-voluteer Julie was also at Tammy's this morning, taking pictures for our Facebook page and helping me load up the ferals into my car (Thanks Julie!).
It was a busy day at PAWS - Dedra didn't leave PAWS until 6:45pm or so while I didn't get out of there until after 7:00pm - a long day...
One of the friendlies was deemed to be too young to have surgery, so only 22 friendlies were done today. However, one feral showed up at the very last minute so on my way back to PAWS this afternoon, I stopped at Tammy's and picked him up and brought him to PAWS for surgery. Tammy had previously cleared bringing this cat in - the rock-stars at PAWS added this cat to the total so that we could get them all done so we wound up doing 13 ferals today.
These 35 cats bring the July totals up to 71, our yearly totals up to 547 and our overall totals to 6,523. And, remember when we had our Celebrate 5500 event late last year? Well, now we've done another 1,000+ cats, blowing by 6,500!
(12 July update) - 22 of these cats were males while the remaining 13 were females.
