New Neighborhood Cats!

Shy ginger kitty was very wary.
This was as close as I could get!
I believe this cat has a tipped ear, since I know the
woman living next door practises TNR, as I do.

This sweetheart came a'running when I called.
I was allowed tummy rubs!
Note the tipped ear; someone TNR'd this cutie, and is obviously caring for him well!

Even though practicing TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) is against city policy, I am heartened to know that others are looking after the stray and feral cat population in my neighborhood.  These two cats were blocks away from each other! 

On this 49th Earth Day, taking care of our fellow creatures is of paramount importance.  I am doing my part by planting native species of flowers and bushes, to encourage native bees, birds, and bats.  Helping outdoor cats too, has been a part of my life since 2008.  Money isn't the solution; doing something is what is needed!  Go to the Earth Day website here, and find out what's happening in your neck of the woods and all around the globe!

  9. How sad that your city is against TNR. I am glad you and others are taking care of these kitties. How does a city choose to be against this? Is it possible to fight city hall?

  10. Cute kitties! We're glad you and your neighbour are taking care of them, but we can't understand how anyone can leave them on their own. Or the city and it's policy.

  14. Great post! I don't know how TNR is against city policy. TNR is doing the city a favor by keeping the stray cat population down.

  19. You have amazing neighbors! :)
    Tipped ear is a popular way to sign spayed cat in Poland. I think it's good idea. Purka also has tipped ear :)

  21. What policy does the city have instead of trap-neuter-return? I hear ignoring a problem is very big in civil government.
