On November 29th the caretaker of a feral cat colony in Cleveland Heights discovered that someone had put out antifreeze into the cats’ food and water dishes in a clear attempt to poison and kill the colony.
The property had recently been sold and the new owner wanted the cats gone.
Upon hearing of this, our TNR Division sprung into action!
Most of the cats had already been trapped and spayed/neutered by a member of our TNR Division so the process of trapping them again, and trapping any new cats that were there, began immediately.
Members of our TNR Division, the colony caretaker, and local trappers, worked together to trap 13 of the 15 cats that were at the site.
We are still after the last two cats there and will not stop until they are safe.
The call for donations of crates and cages garnered a generous outpouring from our members and we received enough supplies to temporarily house the 13 cats that were trapped.
To date, 4 of the cats have been relocated to barn homes.
We are still looking for barns for the remaining cats to be moved to.
Thanks to the colony caretaker for noticing something was wrong, the quick response of our TNR Division and the generosity of our Weirdo community, the Antifreeze Cats, are now safe!
