Three New Cats--One going Blind

Dear condo neighbors and animal lovers,

Three new cats have appeared overnight at the Riverfront colony. Two males and a female. We suspect that at least one was dumped. She's tame, very clean and is getting closer to volunteers daily.

The first male was trapped and taken to the vet. Sadly he was very ill and on top of that he had severe eye infection and was going blind. We had to put him to sleep. He was an outdoor, feral cat that would not have survived. The vet bill was little over $100. (Office visit, physical exam, eye test, euthanasia and disposal fee).

That leaves the other two cats and Scotty who have been very difficult to trap with a standard cat trap. This means a drop trap is needed which is heavier, bulkier and more costly.

We believe Scotty is very sick
He's had multiple wounds and is losing weight
We rarely see him and therefore he's very difficult to trap

Therefore, we are asking for any donation amount to help cover the cost of
  1. trapping
  2. veterinary care
  3. spaying/neutering; post surgery care
  4. food
