Blog 05/29/17 to 06/04/17

Seeking someone to take over Barn Cats, Inc.:  I would like to officially retire as Executive Director in 2019.  I can retain the fundraising pieces but would like to stop the relocations, equipment pickups, phone calls, and emails…the day-to-day stuff.  I will be available for consultation…  If interested call or email Barn Cats…972-315-2875

BARN CAT BASH – Sunday, June 4th
Bistecca in Highland Village, 5:30 pm

Reservations Required

Our Cats after Release
Calls/Emails:  Kittens, Kittens, and More Kittens!
BMG (Bitch/Moan/Groan:   Dead Hog on the Road
OMG (Oh My God):  Peacocks Dumped

Relocations and In Take:   I placed 7 this week.  Still working with a holiday weekend and now people leaving town for graduations, etc.       
1          Backyard in Dallas (Lucky)
3          Barn in Justin (Mama Kitty, Cam, Kiz)
3          Garage in Paris (Tony, Emmie, Terrance)

Our Cats after Release:    
1.     McKinney:  Louis, Bruce, Mako, Bingo, Smiley, and Callie all went to this garage/workshop in McKinney.  All are still around and doing great.  I even saw Louis and Bruce when I was there. 
2.     Celeste:  Giselle, Linda, and Peter are living in this barn in Celeste.  All are seen regularly and Giselle was even still in her carrier in the cage!   SO – I left the carrier.  No Problem!    
3.     Sanger:  Shreveport, Leah and Lilly went to this backyard shed.  The owners put in a window with a cat door into the shed which is working great.  Lilly got out by pushing a part of the siding out.  They are unsure if she is still around but the other two are seen mornings and evenings. 
Calls/Emails:  Kittens, Kittens, and More Kittens!
If a cat shows up and you don’t get it sterilized, then you have kittens, kittens, and more kittens.  This is not ROCKET SCIENCE!   The stupid ones here are the people.  This is a problem that is easily resolved at the start – but the longer you let it go on, the worse is the problem.  SORRY – YOU CAUSED THIS – NOT ME!  Gave them advise but that is it.  We do not take kittens – there are 400 adoption groups in the DFW area.        

BMG:   Dead Hog on the Road
I noticed a bunch of buzzards on the side of the road.  That always is the key that something has been hit by a car.  It is usually a coyote, raccoon, etc. but this time it was a GIANT BLACK FERAL HOG!   (I assume it was feral)  WOW – never seen that before. 

OMG:  Peacocks Dumped
Took some equipment to a barn north of Decatur.  The owner said that someone had dumped two peacocks – WHAT?  They hired someone to remove them.  I hope they were relocated not just killed…?????  Always here of dogs and cats dumped – not peacocks!  

Thanks for following the Barn Cats Blog.            Peg
