I have a long list of things to get done this weekend, and luckily I got a chunk of them done yesterday.
I am neutering cats at a racing stable and have received nothing but enthusiastic cooperation from the staff and horse owners so far.
It is especially nice to have three men (so far) express serious concern about the welfare of the resident cats. So often it is stereotyped that only women cast more than a single glance at a cat. It was a gentleman who left a message on my phone about this pretty lady and her kits:
Mom cat ran away when I entered the stall. I kitten-napped the little ones and left an unset trap (back door removed) and some food for her. I did not set the trap, it being Kentucky Derby Day and the first day of racing at this track was due to begin in just a few hours. I'll return Sunday to try to catch her. The kittens have been great with a bottle and are tucked in here now.
One kitten already is spoken for by a gentleman at the track. He wanted a male white kitten, and lucky (for me!) one of the two white kittens was indeed male. He said he'd head home to check with his wife. :)
To learn about pups, you'll need to check out my personal blog after about 11:15 am. You can't read what I haven't written yet!
PostNote: Alley Cats and Angels has bottle-babies too!
