Our Cats after Release:
1.     Fairview:  The barn is Fairview does not have animals but farming equipment and an exercise room in a stall.  I put Captain Hook, Peter Pan, and Franklin out in this area.  They are seeing two out of three (I actually saw one but it ran from me) but the litter boxes are full.  I told him “Poop is good” and he just laughed. 
2.     Seagoville:  UPDATE:  Ribbit, now Diesel, is doing very well.  I put him out the last week of June and when I returned from vacation, he had worked his way into the house and is now totally indoor.  SO – you never know!  

August Closeout:  We placed a total of 66 in 10 North Texas counties.  This is our BEST AUGUST EVER in 14 years!   It is all because of the cooler weather.  Don’t Mess with Mother Nature!

Calls/Emails:  Cats from Louisiana
Been waiting for this one…
We are too close to Louisiana so when a natural disaster happens, we will get a call to take some cats.  Current count is 12…but don’t know about vetting, ages, timeline, etc.  This was an email and I am waiting for a call.  For Katrina, we went East and others went North to meet in Shreveport.  Hope to hear from folks soon about this one and maybe get those 12 cats this week.  Update next Sunday!      

BMG:   New Fence
I contracted with a company to put up a new fence.  They did not get started until Friday and most of that was take down.  On Saturday they started putting up the new panels but at the same time as the Barn Cat volunteers were here to clean cages.  WHAT MESS!  The cat room door was blocked while they built the new gate and stuff was all over the driveway.  GEEZ!  We just decided to stop and drink beer until they finished with the gate.  Beer is good!

OMG:  Feral Houses
Two clients had feral houses this week.  One in purchased it on Amazon and it is heated.  That was for Sweet Pea.  The other built the house.  They gave me the dimensions but it “got bigger” as he continued to build it.  I took over my bigger cage pieces and we jerry-rigged it until it worked out.  It was Hill Billy Construction at its best.  BUT – the cats are safe and that is what is always important.  Good Luck, Louise and Squee.
