In Corsicana, Tank (who I rarely saw in my cat room), came out and let the husband pet him! 

Cats after Release: 
1.      Anna – Mr. Nanty (Nathan) and Tank are seen each night patrolling the property.  There are many free-range chickens on the property and the cats are keeping their distance from the large roasters!    

2.      Trenton – Kennedy, Macie, and Elaine have all been seen regularly around the barn area.  I got a picture of Kennedy in their “sleeping” area. 

3.      Bells – I have put a total of 9 cats out on this property.  Girlfriend and Cindy have left the “man cave” and are hiding out in the hay barn…rat haven over there!  This picture is of a cat I put there about 4 years ago. 
4.      Mineola – I send two new volunteers off to Mineola to collect the 3 triple cages that were there.  When they arrived, they discovered that the ranch manager HAD NOT RELEASED THE CATS A WEEK AGO!   SO – they closed the workshop, and let the cats out.  The manager set up food and water and the barn owner added a litter box when she arrived later that day.  Those were all cats from a school in University Park.  They are doing well there.

5.      Flower Mound – Tootles and Custard are hiding out at the back of the barn.  They are doing well.  I had to take the picture from far away so as not to spook them.  Sorry it is not really clear!

6.      Whitesboro – Katie, Billie, and Bobby are doing well.  Did not see them.  

7.      McKinney – Fluffy (now Lilly) continues to thrive in her heated shed in a backyard. 

8.      Bartonville – Lots of good news here including pictures of cats from many years ago.

Calls/EMAILS You Don’t Want to Get:  A person with many dogs and cats in Trenton was evicted this week.  He continues to return to feed the animals.  Local adoption groups are taking friendly cats and dogs – but – you know what that means:  Barn Cats will probably get all the “left-overs” – the unadoptable cats.  Rhonda is going out there to trap on Sunday night.  None are sterilized – of course.      

BMG:   From last week:  All that paperwork is STILL not completed from animal services who got the cats done without letting the volunteer “pick” them.  I continue to wait – almost all those cats have been placed now and I am left to MAIL those documents when they are received. 

OMG:  Took in 4 cats from a person in an apartment complex.  One went in to be spay but needed a neuter….Rosie went in and Roger came out!   Here we go again!  Two weeks in a row!

Thanks for following the Barn Cats blog.  See you next week!           Peg
