Many of you might not know, but because of our climate female cats can come into heat 4 or even 5 times /year and produce a lot of kittens-10 to 20/year. Incredible .
These cats survive on wild birds, lizards, rats and mice(a good thing)and anything else they can scavenge, including getting into restaurants and tiendas and making a terrible mess. Reducing the number of these ferals helps our environment in so many ways.
In the past it was a common practice for people to put out poison to deal with the problem. That is a terrible solution since the poison (usually strychnine ) gets into the environment and kills everything it touches. It still happens, but through education it seems to be getting less of a solution.
One of Cisco's commitments to the community is to help the environment as well as provide sterilization for dogs and cats. Reducing the number of these ferals that can reproduce especially helps our wild birds and lizards.
With the payment to Abram and the cost of medicines and supplies we are providing it's coming to around $300ps /cat.
If we are going to continue this service we really need monetary help.
I realize that asking for money seems to be the "cry of the season", but Cisco's depends only on our community for the money it takes to do the clinics and now this very important project.
Don't I wish the ???? foundation would come in and hand us the money-wishful thinking???
Think about dropping off a donation at The Lab with Laura. Tell her the money should go directly to the "Catch that Cat" Trapping Project.
And if you want a trap please contact me @ ciscosamigos @hotmail.com or Laura at The Lab. We'll put you on the list.
The cats are released in the same area where they are trapped . We do not and will not "dispose" of them in the "jungle".
Thank you for your support.
