Kim and I helped Melanie TNR her Avondale colony just over two months ago. We trapped 17 cats in one weekend.
That’s way too many cats, which is why Melanie contacted me. Five of those 17 cats are no longer on the street, including four kittens admitted to PAWS Chicago, and Cowbella, who is being fostered by Kim and currently available for adoption. That’s an immediate almost 30% reduction in the size of this colony, not to mention all of the cats that will no longer be born from the female cats and Katler, the queen mama supreme cat.
Katler was named after her cute little Charlie Chaplin mustache, and then we named the colony after her. Since then, Melanie sent us updates and photos on how the colony is doing now. We LOVE updates! Katler is still the star.
Since their TNR Melanie asked us to purchase cat shelters made out of Rubbermaid bins for the colony. Chinny enjoyed his immediately.
