Semi Catch Up

I haven’t forgotten you all…really. I’m buried in cats we are trapping, and as always happens about this part of the summer, the cats are coming out of the bushes and there are kittens to get and sick cats to take care of. There are stories to tell, but little time to share them right…Read more »

Callie’s Kittens

Early last March we (Derry Township Community Cats) was notified about a small colony that needed some spay/neuter attention. The caretaker had never heard of us, which amazes us, but it happens. She was, however, feeling overwhelmed and was glad for the help in controlling her outside kitty population. Problem was, at least one cat…Read more »

Successes like that help keep…Read more »
