    I have done TNR out of pocket for many years, I wish our town would get on board more and do more. We have a humane society here that is more concerned about making money ie: pick ups and euthanasia than actually placing animals . They are taking in animals from other states and displacing our own .
    OK I am ranting.
    Community cats are so important to be educated about, I would love to attend something like this in person or even online, I think it would be educational even for seasoned trappers and caretakers of colonies, but I have to give it a frowny face at the price. I spend more on cat food, medicines , vet bills per month than I spend most times on myself. $75 for an online conference is out of reach for the average caretaker most of us do it on a shoestring out of compassion.
    Great info, but out of reach…….. here is my frowny face 🙁

    • Hopefully as more sponsors get on board and know the importance of learning more about how to help community cats the cost can be lowered and perhaps even free. I have sent you an email too.

        I looked for your email Joanne, and didnt see one (looked under your name and Tiniest Tiger too)
        I think a whole lot of this can likely be found online… maybe not these speakers, but most is available.

        In my experience,it is a matter of educating the general public to spay and neuter and teaching that pets arent throw away things. Easier said than done for sure.
        My saddest experiences are seeing new arrivals and knowing they were at some point someone’s cat- discarded and learning to be an outside cat. Even though we have heated shelter, fresh food , water, and pet them when we can we have to teach them to be wary now of humans if we cant find where they came from, or find them a home. They try so hard to please, they dont understand why they cant come in… all they want is love.

        True ferals, I have socialized kittens for years, and found homes. The Mommas are spayed and returned outside to live happy long lives.

        The oldest colony member right now is Punchy, believed to be almost 19. He was a wiley old Tom who had produced many offspring, now what is a considered a ‘friendly feral’ on his own terms.

        I hope to see more sponsors of discussions about community cats too. People don understand they are not a nuisance, they dont kill tons of birds (as some think) they serve a purpose, but there has to be a better control of population. You never catch them all, there will always be a new kitten (or heaven forbid kittens) but it is manageable.

        Thank you for always posting about community cat and what people can do to help. You have a long reach, and the more the word gets out, the better things will be .
