Yesterday, we brought four more cats to the PAWS-Chicago Spay/Neuter clinic to be fixed. All of them were ferals.
I picked the cats up from Tammy's in the morning and brought them to PAWS and then picked them up from PAWS in the evening and brought them back to Tammy's for recovery.
One of the cats turned out to be already spayed, but not ear-tipped. After the cat was shaved, the vet noted a spay scar. However to be sure, she opened up the cat again and looked around for a uterus (it was not there) just to be sure. Poor cat - having to go through this twice. However, the cat is now ear-tipped and micro-chipped (along with being treated for fleas and ear mites, the full PAWS treatment) so it won't happen a third time.
With these first three cats of June, Feral Fixers has now processed 285 cats for the year and 2,766 overall.
