Spring Is In The Air

Here’s a look inside to our local Humane Society’s, Monday Feral Trap Day, where each Monday the clinic is devoted to the Trap Neuter Return (TNR) program where we, as volunteers, humanely trap community cats and bring them here to be treated. The clinic then spays/neuters, vaccinates and treats them for any wounds or medical issues. We pick them up in the evening and take them home to safely recover. The cats are happily released back into managed environments by Tuesday. On this particular Monday, there was a record number of spay/neuters. A total of 151!! As one of the volunteers who participate in feral trapping, these numbers are a wonderful thing to see.  It means 151 cats can no longer reproduce and contribute to the over-population of unwanted animals in our community. 

If you’d like to see some of the process, you can check the pictures out here:

The cages are much larger than they appear in the pics so don’t be concerned.  The hardest part for me is the recovery.  I worry, worry, worry until the cat is fully alert, eating and doing it’s business like normal. 

I’ve gotten a lot of my posies planted.  I love this time of year when the breezes are sweetly blowing, the temps are just right and the humidity is low.  A perfect time to be in the yard puttering around.   And hanging clothes on the line.

And isn’t this the cutest clothespin bag? Makes you want to hang clothes!

Only a couple things going on in the studio.  One is this card.

My inspiration came from the clothespin bag. Love that red!

Until next time,
