Feral Fixers brought in ten more cats to the PAWS-Chicago Spay/Neuter clinic on Tuesday to be fixed. All ten of these cats were ferals and seven turned out to be female (with the remaining three being male, of course).
This was a day where not much went right. Super-volunteer Charli was supposed to pick up the cats from Tammy's and take them to PAWS, but when she got to Tammy's, her car would no longer start. Board Member Kurt came to the rescue, coming to Tammy's and picking up the cats and bringing them to PAWS. Super-volunteer Dedra picked up the cats from PAWS and brought them back to Tammy's for recovery and distribution. However, she didn't get back to Tammy's until nearly 8pm - PAWS had a difficult dog surgery that really put them behind and so everything got backed up from there. Ferals are the last animals operated on and so this made everything very late for Feral Fixers. Super-volunteer Jennifer was helping out with the cats in the basement and in the garage getting everyone fed and tidied up for the night. So, thank you Charli, Kurt, Dedra and Jennifer!
With these 10 cats, Feral Fixers has now processed 120 cats for July, 596 for the year and 6,572 overall since we began operations in late 2007.
