Spay/Neutering, Part Two
This is the little black kitten that was spayed yesterday. She is now resting in a soft cage on my deck.
After I brought her home this morning, we put the trap out again and caught a second cat; we think this one is the mother of the litter. I will bring the second one home tomorrow morning. Next week, I will try to catch the remaining three little black kittens. After that, my neighbor is going to borrow the trap and try to catch the cats that have been visiting her yard.
We think the colony of cats behind our houses numbers about twelve total. We are trying to keep the number of homeless cats in our neighborhood from expanding. So far, I have prevented one female from giving birth to new litters.
