Blog 11/11/19 to 11/17/19
THIS IS THE LAST BLOG UNTIL THE END OF DECEMBER.
I will be out of town but checking emails and phone messages.
PLEASE BE ADVISED:
1. The Barn Cat phone number has changed. Remove 972-315-2875. Use 972-742-5238. The website has been updated but there are still many lists out there with the old number. A message now exists on the old number that references the new number.
2. The Barn Cat mailing has changed: PO Box 12642, Dallas, TX 75225. Letters will be going out this week with the new information.

Calls/Emails: OOPS – Thought you are in Michigan
This lady in an email wanted to know about spay/neuter clinics for feral cats. I emailed back “What city are you in?” Answer: A town in southern Michigan. OOPS – no info for there. Recommended she contact local shelters and adoption groups for that kind of info. She apologized! That’s OK. You never know where people are these days unless they say.
OMG: Trying to Update Records - UPDATE
Since Barn Cats, Inc. has changed and is no working with so many other groups to place their cats, my paperwork has become a ROYAL MESS! I am trying to re-organize so I can keep up with everything but it has been a struggle. November is seeing the dawn of a new process for recording barn calls and emails. Keep your Paws Crossed that it works!!!!!! UPDATE: Still a problem but hope I am closing in on it. My problem is that I am not good about recording to the online file when I assign a barn through email or text. Personal problem!
BMG: Oh So Cold Weather!
We have had 2 nights in the mid-20’s and now in the low-30’s. It is either TOO cold or TOO hot. We cannot seem to win these days. If this is CLIMATE CHANGE, I am tired of it. I want nice fall and nice spring weather. We had NEITHER this year. BUMMER!
Thanks for following the Barn Cats Blog. Peg
