Today, i sent what i thought, will be the last female cats found in my back alley to be TNRed. When my friend, another cat lover, Bee Suan, heard that I was sending this cat, she immediately and kindly offered to sponsor the charges of RM85, paid to SPCA. The cat is spayed and now resting in my house. It will be released tomorrow to the back lane.
As i thought that it will be my last TNR for my alley cats, suddenly i found 3 new kittens behind my back lane today! So from 11 cats, down to 10 and now up to 13 again. I suspect that some people dumped unwanted kittens behind my house. And indeed, perseverance is needed, to keep their population in check.
However, i do really see the benefits of TNR, at least for those cats that i have sent to be neutered. They are now very healthy, fat and seem contented. Seeing this gives me the faith to continue my mission to TNR all the alley cats behind my house.
