Volunteers are welcome to join the fun!Many thanks to our great cat wrangling team for another successful LSU Spay Day. Sue, Amy,Brittney, and I spent our entire Sunday with this event, not to mention taking three trucks to BatonRouge. Special thanks to Amy for not only spending her entire Sunday with this event, but also herSaturday night was spent trapping cats at remote locations. Julie adeptly handled the 6:00 a.m.signing in desk. Gail and family hauled cats early Sunday and returned them late Sunday night allover the parish, and then some. Thanks to Candice for setting traps and monitoring them.Our efforts resulted in 36 cats being spayed/neutered/4-in-1 vaccinated/and rabies vaccinated.We are getting close to finishing up the TNR (Trap, Neuter, Release) of the 60-cat clan that islocated 3 miles north of Clinton. We spayed/neutered 6 of that cat clan this spay day. By our bestestimates, we still have about 10 unaltered cats left there. We have adopted out 13 of those 60cats and have 4 in foster care. This spay day we started with another large cat clan. That grouphas about 30 cats. We trapped 11 for this spay day.We are especially grateful to LSU Vet School for this excellent service and to Cat Haven fororganizing it all. A total of 120 cats were spayed/neutered Sunday. They gave FAWSapproximately 1/3 of their slots. Without this event, East Feliciana would have no cat program.TO CONTACT FAWS:Feliciana Animal Welfare SocietyP.O.
