Time to tell you about my new project…
I have been so excited and really couldn’t wait to tell you all about it.
I have joined a team of ladies who have started a feral feeding scheme at the Pavilion Shopping Centre.
There is a lot that needs to be done and a lot of areas could use your help.
Before I get carried away, for those of you who don’t know;
a feral cat is a domesticated cat that hasn’t been socialised. They have either ended up being abandoned or have strayed away from their homes.
Ferals mostly rely on scrounging through garbage to find food. The luckier ferals are part of a feeding scheme.
To get to my main point of this post, I would like to ask for your help.
There are a few little kittens still following mommy, and some bigger tabby kittens. I haven’t seen daddy cat yet. But I will keep you up-to-date with developments.
We would like to trap and sterilise mommy, but this is what Lisa who has been feeding these angels on the weekends, has noticed:
“ I saw 3 new adult cats and the 3 new babies came out from their trolley safe haven for a bit. They look about 4-5 weeks old. The Mom is either a tabby or a big black female cat as she looked very heavy but she could be about to drop kittens.
I also spotted an adult tabby with a long fluffy tail.
There are still 3 tabby’s and I hope to somehow try capture them as they are getting rather big now and the conditions leave much to be desired but thankfully they do have some shelter.”
After doing a bit of research and looking at where the kitties are situated; we could really benefit from donations of the following:
- Cash donations: for maintenance (buying the below items),(banking details per request via email)
- Dry cat and kitten food
- Food bowls. (ideally we should be using stainless steel bowls, to reduce the spread of bacteria, but ice-cream containers or the like would be more than helpful)
- At the moment there is no place where food can be kept dry and safe from the elements.
If you have any materials for example: wood off-cuts or tarp, that would help us to build a few small boxes to house food bowls
Please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help with any of the above. BIG and small donations are very welcome.
We are hoping to get plenty donations for our angels so that we will be able to share with the various feeding stations at the Pavilion.
Thanks to all of you for your regular support and be sure to pop back for more updates.
