on a tangential note i just started conversation with the city about organizing and recognizing organised cat colonies and TNR. we "created" these domesticated co-inhabitants on the planet, now it is our responsibility to reduce the populations. one of the biggest problems is one that is a lot like the restoration spectrum. so many differents paths on the same goal, strong willed and smart individuals, and the need to find the biggest tent possible.

i never even would have thought about sponsoring hay banks. its brilliant and simple.

Eden - congratulations on your imminent retirement and for finding a worthy cause to support in your new community! Sounds like you are already "home". :D

edee, thanks for the link! as with many things here in stjo there are a lot of examples of how to achieve goals which have worked in other communities. it looks like most of the city wide TNR programs which are successful are those with active colony caretakers. my goal short term is to trap and neuter the three toms on my block..... i am for reduction and humane methods: and there are as many opinions on what that means as there are interested parties. :shock:

i just had a litter of 3 kittens from the female who i have rescued. no more litters for miss fluffy, and she and her kittens will be the first in my established colony.

Angolito, I visited Canada quite a while back, and stumbled into this cat colony:

You know about the American writer, Hemingway's the cat colony in Florida:

Just received these horse pics, copy and paste as a website to view, hope they come through:
