Relocations and In Take

Our Cats after Release
Calls You Don’t Want to Get
BMG (Bitch – Moan - Groan)
OMG (Oh My God)

Relocations and In Take:   Placed 5 with intake at 2.
1                    Barn in Rockwall (Peanut Butter) – see below
2                    Screened porch in McKinney (Bosley and Baxter)

Peanut Butter is the cat from last week that had a peanut butter jar stuck on her head. We placed her in Rockwall where the resident kitty watched…Turtle.

It was the perfect place for her. 




July Closeout:  We placed 35 in July with relocations done BEFORE it got extremely hot. 17 were for spay/neuter in Greenville and Bonham.  We were in the following counties:

Collin               Dallas              Denton            Hunt               
Fannin             Rockwall          Wise

Our Cats after Release:             
1.      Fairview – I put Miss Ellie and Jock (The Ewings) in this barn. Both are doing well. Miss Ellie was out (sorry about the not clear pic – too much glare) but Jock was hiding – got photo of his gray butt!

Calls You Don’t Want to Get:  “I found 4 newborn kittens under a bush and the mom has been killed.” – BUT the caller does not say where they are…my recommendation depends on your location. Barn Cats does not take kittens but we can at least advise what to do.    

BMG:  I answered the phone about 9:30 on Wednesday – first call of that morning…but the lady said I was a grump and she did not want to work with me. OK – no problem – I am sure you can find someone else to help with your cat problem – NOT!     
OMG:   I received a call to place 2 friendly cats in a garage in Flower Mound. I had to get two friendly cats for them because I did not have any in house. I had been on that street before... BUT IT WAS THE SAME HOUSE! OMG! This family has not lived there very long and it was vacant for 9 months before they moved in…but the rats moved it! I placed 3 or 4 there in 2004. SO – many years ago! This has happened once before in McKinney…same property…different owners. The grandparents also live on the property so there is someone there almost all the time. They put a fan on the cage and the cats are adjusting well. 
Thanks for following the Barn Cats blog.  See you next week!           Peg
