As summer winds up, San Diego Cat Adoption Service has many adorable cats and kittens ready for adoption and waiting to join their forever families. Many of these kittens come to us through the efforts of various kind and concerned people who see a stray cat mother in their neighborhood and take the responsibility to make a phone call. In the case of stray mothers who are truly feral, or wild, we wait until the kittens are weaned and then spay the mother and return her to the area she was found, or sometimes relocate them to a safer area, such as a colony that is managed and fed. The practice of trap, spay/neuter, release (TNR) is essential to the humane management of feral cat populations. In San Diego county the practice of TNR by groups such as the Feral Cat Coalition (FCC) lowered the rate of cats being impounded and euthanized by 50% over a five year period. At Cat Adoption Service we provide loving homes for new kittens and occasionally for docile, sweet cats who are found mixing in feral colonies. All cats and kittens in our care live in foster homes until they are adopted, which ensures the best care and also socializes them. Unfortunately the cost of medical expenses, food, litter, and miscellaneous supplies are almost never entirely covered by the cost of adopting a cat, and the longer a cat stays with us, the greater this discrepancy. That is why we depend so much on the generosity of supporters like you. Your donations are indispensable in rescuing multitudes of homeless cats from a slow and painful death by disease, predators, cars, starvation and cruelty. Thank you for all you do to improve the lives of homeless cats in San Diego County. We appreciate it so much, and words cannot describe how much they appreciate it!
