Our Cats after Release:
1. Sanger: Yancey, Morris, and Penny went to this BIG BARN / MAN CAVE in Sanger along with two cats from Denton Animal Services. They are hanging around the house rather than the new cat house that was built for them…but all is well.
2. DeSoto: Tina, Misty, and Leo went to this barn in DeSoto. Leo is now living inside the barn apartment and sleeping on their bed. Tina and Misty have been seen multiple times but are being more elusive.
3. Arlington: This homeowner was moving and wanted to take her cats. They are living now in their garage and are happy to still be with their people.
4. Fort Worth: Dreamsicle and Pierre were hiding out together in the same hidey box that the barn owner has provided. They are doing well.
5. McKinney: Bobby, Brad, Jerimiah, and Toby are living in this barn in McKinney. The donkey is keeping everyone safe and all boys are doing well.
We placed 52 in March in the following 8 North Texas counties:
Archer Dallas Grayson Tarrant
Collin Denton Montague Wichita
Bad Calls/EMAILS: 45 Cats in New York
A lady from New York left me a message at the end of the week. Her colony needs to be relocated and she is calling anyone she can find on the internet. I returned her call and left a message – it is 3 days later with no return call from her. Guess she got the problem resolved…???
The kitten calls have started. We don’t ever take kittens. If folks would read our website they would know that. They just start calling and emailing anyone they can find. Kittens can be carried off by a hawk or an owl in a farm/ranch environment. We take them 8 months and older…NO KITTENS HERE! There are 400 adoption groups in the DFW area. Get with one of them at a PetsMart or a Petco.
OMG: Bluebonnets & Iris
Flowers are already blooming. There is a ton of bluebonnets along I-20 in South Dallas and we have seen many beautiful groups of iris. This cool bottle-lined garden is in Corinth:
I am having hip replacement on Monday and will be “down for the count” for 4 to 6 weeks. Intake has been suspended as of last Tuesday and we just about got the house cleaned out before Easter. Only Bonnie and Sophie are still in cages here. I will pick up the BLOG when I return and we start placing cats once again. HAPPY EASTER!
Thanks for following the Barn Cats Blog. Peg
