Feral Fixers brought in 32 more cats to the PAWS-Chicago Spay/Neuter clinic to be fixed today. 29 of these cats were ferals while the other three were "friendly ferals".
Super-volunteer Charli helped me pick up the cats from Tammy's this morning and bring them to PAWS (Thanks Charli!) while super-volunteer Stacy helped me pick up the cats from PAWS late this afternoon and bring them back to Tammy's for recovery and distribution (Thanks Stacy!). And, as always, super-volunteer Judy was at Tammy's both this morning and this evening to help out with everything that goes on to make this industrial-sized operation continue (Thanks Judy!).
One of the ferals appeared to have an ear-tip (was hard to tell - the cat kept scrunching down in the trap), but we could find no trace of a Microchip. However, when PAWS sedated him, they were able to determine that a) she had been spayed, b) she was micro-chipped and c) she did have an eartip. So, 31 out of 32 cats were fixed on this trip.
Of the 31 cats fixed today, 16 were females with the other 15 being males - again a near 50-50 distribution. And with these 31 cats, Feral Fixers has now processed 47 cats for April, 188 cats for the year and 6,164 overall.
