Feral Fixers sent in 24 more cats on Thursday to the PAWS-Chicago Spay/Neuter clinic to be fixed. 13 of these cats were ferals while the other 11 were friendly ferals. Tammy reports on the details:
Saffron, a huge male, tried to tell us he had already been neutered with lots of protesting growls and shrieks but since we couldn't look for ourselves (way too animated!) and he had no chip or eartip, he made the trip and now has an eartip and is newly vaccinated. When released he turned around and came back to be petted so we will most likely be hearing more about him some day soon! as he may go find a home of his own - they so often do after the TNR treatment, even if they have been neutered beforehand.
Also in this bunch is a friendly that our volunteers have been trying to persuade his family to get him neutered for over a year - yea!
Super-volunteers Dedra and Charli picked up the cats from Tammy's and brought them to PAWS in the morning while super-volunteers Dedra (again!) and Maureen did the pickup from PAWS in the afternoon and brought them back to Tammy's for recovery and distribution. And, I'm sure that super-volunteer Judy was at Tammy's in the morning and afternoon helping out with everything. Thanks Dedra! Thanks Charli! Thanks Maureen! Thanks Tammy!
Of these 23 cats fixed, 15 were females with the remaining 8 being males.
With these 23 cats, Feral Fixers has now processed 88 cats for August, 812 cats for the year and 6,788 overall.
