Making Copies...

This morning, I spent a few hours at All About Animals Rescue, volunteering with about 20 co-workers.  Half of us cleaned kennels and attached tags to feral cat traps, while the rest created trap covers cut from donated bed sheets.  We used a template (about 57" by 32"), and churned out copy after copy of covers.

On Sunday, October 15, All About Animals is having $10 Community Cat Spay & Neuter Blitz, so they will use all of the trap covers they can get!  Cats need to be covered up to remain calm.  We made a huge stack of covers.  

They expect 120 cats, all from TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) situations.

An example of the cat trap covers that we made
This was the final cover, made by yours truly!
All About Animals, in Warren Michigan
The TruCatch traps are roughly 30" by 10" by 8", with a quiet trap door that is activated when the cat steps on the lever plate.  Made from coated-wire; the cat NEVER touches metal.  The fabric cover blocks the view of all of the hubbub going on.  All About Animals loans out dozens and dozens of traps, plus offers low cost spay and neuter operations during the week.  Sweetie and Patty O'Malley were both 'fixed' there, as well as Angels Sammy and Hobo.

All About Animals does important work; I am glad to donate a little bit of time to a great cause...and my office co-workers are too!

So many people talk about what they WANT to do to help - but never actually follow through. Thank you for helping to make the world a better place for our [feral] feline friends :)

That's so awesome of you to donate your time and help like that. It's too bad more humans don't do that since there are so, so many of us out there that could use the help. Great job, and have an awesome weekend.

It makes pur hearts happy to hear so many cats will be spayed or neutered through TNR. Our country needs to reduce the community cat population! We have a post about a successful program tomorrow.
