Hey Miss Heather!

Next to my office in Long Island City is a taxi medallion company and they have a few strays that live there (a nice lady comes by each day and leaves food for them).  Yesterday, as I was leaving work, I saw two furry critters chowing down.  On closer inspection, one of them wasn’t your usual urban fur!

Head over to Vinny’s site and watch this video for yourself. Seeing is truly believing!

P.S.: Thanks for passing this along Vinny!

Thank you for covering feral cats (and domestic cats), as well as doing posts about TNR workshops.  I’m writing to see if you’d consider doing a post for National Feral Cat Day (on very short notice – it’s 10/16!) to raise awareness about feral cats and what people can do to help.

Every neighborhood in NYC has feral cats and most people innocently feed them, not knowing you can do anything else to help out these feline underdogs. But they can – through Trap-Neuter-Return! Our website with general information is here. And the workshops, including one on 10/16, are listed here.

We’re always willing to provide feral cat content at any time, National Feral Cat Day or not, so please keep us in mind!

Duly blogged!

Spotted On Manhattan Avenue: TNR Workshop

Anyone who has read this site for any appreciable period of time knows that I have a fondness for cats. Conversely, a significant amount of my readership are animal lovers of one stripe or another. One question I am often asked about the stray cat problem in Greenpoint (and beyond) is:

How can I help?

The following is a start.

On Saturday, May 8, starting at noon Greenpoint’s own Word Books will be hosting a Trap Neuter and Return Workshop. Among the numerous topics to be covered are:

  • How to handle and trap feral cats
  • Arranging veterinary care
  • How to set up and maintain a feral cat colony
  • Raising awareness about the various resources available to you in creating and maintaining a feral cat colony

Upon completing this workshop attendees will be TNR certified and as such will have access to low cost spay and neutering services, traps and equipment. If you are concerned about feline overpopulation in your community and to do something about it I strongly advise you attend this work shop. You can register for this via email at: lois (at) nycferalcat (dot) org (be sure to indicate Brooklyn TNR Workshop in the subject line) or telephone at (212) 662 – 5761.

TNR Workshop
May 8, 2010 12:00 – 3:30 p.m.
Cost: FREE!
Word Books
126 Franklin Street
Brooklyn, NY 11222
