Dusty & Daisy
First the mother now the son…
Charles inspecting the trap
I had just trapped a new pregnant female for sterilisation at *17 when I saw the Auntie running towards me. She had found Dusty in a trap at the bin compound next to blk *25 area 2, behind the bushes… she couldn’t open the trap. I called Sylvia to meet me and then quickly went to release Dusty. A worker told us that the trap belongs to the cleaning supervisor and that they usually release the cats at some parks. I made a police report and will also make a complaint to TC and AVA tomorrow.
This area is under the same TC…and same property officer as this:
Have just sterilized another 5 cats, 2 of them had to be trapped. One almost escaped while trying to transfer him to the carrier.
The first 2 were Anna’s ginger boys. The shy one with the stiff knee joint was boarded at Margies while the other one stayed with me.
The next day, Thursday, it was Dusty’s turn. He was released back after just one day, as he was not happy to be confined, shredding the newspapers and making a lot of noise. So I was quite surprised that he let me stroke and carry him after being released back to his mother.
On Friday Cindy and Charlie from *30 area 3 were done. Cindy was supposed to be sterilized last Friday but then suddenly developed diarrhea. She was also pregnant, so I kept her for a week. Everything went well and she is doing fine now, but I will probably keep her with me for another week. Charlie will go back tonight and I will also try to trap another one or two cats, as I have slots on Monday and Tuesday and 2 more on Wednesday. Then on April 7th it’s Ashley’s turn, to be followed on 21st by Dawn and Sky…
