My run today was sidetracked by cat tracks in the snow. This is an easy way to figure out feral cat hot spots and crossings.
I also visited a new colony caretaker in my neighborhood. She wanted to release her first cat that she TNR’ed at Tree House last week. She was not quite sure if there were other stray cats, but the new cat tracks in her backyard proved there were more around since the one she was caring for has been inside the past few days recovering from her surgery.
She transferred the cat into a feral cat shelter that she made from an Igloo cooler and we put her outside. After a moment, she darted from the shelter and pretty much followed the same cat track path out of the yard.
