This week was extremely busy and successful! We ended up working at three different sites. First off, we were able to trap momma kitty from the Yorktown project last week. She is actually friendly and is being adopted by her caretaker!
We also started working at a new project in Hampton. We trapped a male kitty we named, Acer. He has been neutered and is very happy to be back home! We will be returning there to help the other community cats in the area soon.
The bulk of our week was helping out at an apartment complex in Newport News. Earlier this summer we had several cats fixed there, but we had a few trap smart kitties who we weren't able to trap yet. Well, those kitties made beautiful babies. So a neighbor called us in for assistance when she noticed multiple kittens.
We were able to trap four of the kittens so far, but there are more. Three of them are getting spayed/neutered on Monday and will be going to stay with their caretaker until they are socialized.
One of the kittens is too little to be spayed so she went into a loving foster home. She is already purring and enjoying the inside life! We hope to get the rest of her siblings this week to reunite them. Meet our newest foster, Autumn!
We will continue trapping at that site until we have all of the kittens and adults fixed. Stay tuned for future updates!
