I'm Stressing.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm getting two pregnant cats spayed on Saturday. I haven't had any trouble catching the ones I want to catch so far, but these ones are actually scared of me. I'm not sure this is going to work out too well. I just really hope I can catch them, because they're huge. And it's their babies I end up feeding. I just got four spayed, I only had three more to go, then two female strays showed up. It's never ending! There's an organization that may fund me, but I didn't want to have to resort to that, while I could afford it myself, but if I have two more litters to feed AND get spayed and neutered, I guess I may have too.

That's true, isn't it? Sometimes it feels so overwhelming. But if it means saving more lives, then get the help. Thanks for all that you have already done.

Every once in awhile, I want to cry - just because the need is so great. But then I come on this site and hear from people like you and realize - yeah, there's a great need and its being addressed, slowly and one cat at a time, by caring people.

that you catch everyone and if they have their kittens, that you find warm loving homes for them all.

Dont wait for trapping the last minute. Trap them when you can. It is OK if they wait in the trap or something... As ferals, they are used to hide a whole day if need be.

Good luck!

I know it can seem overwhelming at times, especially when the cats keep coming. I'm in the same situation now at the site where I do TNR. Just stay focussed on helping the ones you can and remember you are making a huge difference in their lives. Also, don't hesitate to ask for help if you need it. If that organization will assist with funding the spay/neuters, go for it. That's what the funds are for and, chances are, they'll be happy to help. Sending lots of trapping vibes your way.
