On Wednesday, Feral Fixers brought in 27 more cats to the PAWS-Chicago Spay/Neuter clinic to be fixed. 23 of these cats were ferals while 4 were 'friendly ferals'. These cats came from multiple locations in DuPage County.
I picked up the cats from Tammy's in the morning and brought them to PAWS and them picked them up from PAWS in the evening and brought them back to Tammy's for recovery and 'distribution'. Once again, we have to thank super-volunteer Sue for loaning us her van - we could not bring in such a large load without the use of a vehicle such as hers - Thanks Sue!
One of the ferals (Sasquatch) had multiple wounds and we asked the PAWS techs/vets to treat this cat as best as they could. They determined that Sasquatch had multiple wounds; among other treatments, they cleaned out the wounds, shaved a good bunch of his fur (he now looks like the Lion King - we're glad it's getting warmer outside!), put in stitches where appropriate and gave him a shot of Convenia (a long-lasting antibiotic). With this treatment, Sasquatch has a leg up on living out the rest of his life in a healthy, ornery manner - thanks PAWS!
With these 27 cats (the first for April), Feral Fixers has now processed 166 cats for this year and 2,647 overall.
