You know – I get several calls a months to remove cats from apartment complexes. Well this week we PLACED some cats at an apartment. A former tenant had indoor/outdoor cats that controlled the rodents and snakes (vacant lot next door). Those folks MOVED and now they are being overrun.  The manager called Barn Cats and now there are 3 cats in cages next to their pool area. They want 3 additional when this group is released, as well. YEAH!

The Argyle garage listed above had a snake problem. Neighbors got cats so the snakes moved next door to their house. NOW – 4 cats are caged in that garage – BYE BYE SNEAKEY SNAKES! 

Our Cats after Release:             
·         Prosper:   Jenny – They let her out for a few moments in the backyard and in 3 seconds, she caught a mouse! GOOD JOB! She will keep the entire neighborhood clear of rodents!  

·         Ennis:  Have a picture down below – cat caught a mouse and ATE IT while we were picking up equipment…GROSS! I sent a picture to my volunteers with the caption “Lunch?”  

·         Frisco:   I put 2 cats out at a plant nursery in Frisco 5 or 6 years ago. One of those guys recently passed away from “natural causes” – usually kidney or liver failure that gets cats.  Well, his friend is having trouble keeping up…Christina. I think it is because she is now the size of a small European city!!!!! I put Topper Tabby out there and he is getting along fine.  

·         McKinney:  Finally connected with the barn owner in McKinney. Harley is doing great and she is considering making her a “house cat”.   ….well you never know!
