Urgent Feral Cat Situation (Betty’s Cats)

October 29, 2009 – See photos of Miss Betty and her Feral Cats!

October 17, 2009 To date, 9 of the ferals in this colony have been spay/neutered, and treated for respiratory illness. Unfortunately, 6 kittens & one adult cat had to be euthanized due to very serious illness and positive FeLV test.

Terry would like to offer her profound thanks to Rhonda Price for contacting her about these kitties. This feral colony is located at a lady’s home in Waxhaw (NC), and is next door to Rhonda’s pet sitter Krista. Rhonda has also provided financial assistance for vet care and spay/neuter, and Krista has helped trap & transport, and care for some of the sick kitties. Thank you Rhonda and Krista!

There is a total of about 30 cats in this feral colony, not including the kitties that had to be euthanized.

Subject: URGENT - COLONY NEEDS HELP

This is a horrifying situation I found today at a feral colony.
Actually, most of the cats are fairly tame (I can probably net
them or scruff them), but most are very sick, very skinny and
malnourished. 
I had to immediately rush a kitten to the vet after I got there,
and sadly, it had to be euthanized.
If ANYONE has any ideas, please SHARE!!!
I will be working to get ALL 30+ of these cats and kittens combo
tested, spayed/neutered/shots and meds and on the road to some
sort of controlled situation.
Thanks for ANY ideas or thoughts.
I have left messages with several animal hospitals, the new Gaston
County Spay/Neuter clinic and Friends of Feral Felines.
The one kitten that had to be put down today cost $102. 
There has got to be a better way!  There are 5-6 VERY sick kittens
in need of immediate help and 2 or 3 pregnant females......
What a mess!
God help us get through it all and pray that we find the cats to be
negative and able to be saved.
Thank you all,
Terry
