Trap Neuter Return (TNR)
This is Coconuts. She lived in our neighborhood and she had "owners" who let her have 2 litters of kittens, never took her into the vet, and sold off the kittens. All the while, she lived outside and ate scraps.
One day, I took her to our local shelter and got her spayed, and all of her vaccinations. She stayed with us for the 2 days post-surgery, and 5 years later, she is still living with us (the "owners" moved a few months later and just left her).
She is very guarded, and it took her 2 years to let us hold her, but now she sits on our laps and likes being pet!
TNR is very important to help control the feral community! (roommate of @olivia_like_whoa) #TNR
Senior Kitties Molly and her sister Sofia are SAFE! Thank you everyone for working SO HARD to network these kitties to be rescued from Downey Shelter. They were surrendered to a high kill shelter by their previous owners for being "TOO OLD". Not only were they rescued TOGETHER but they will also be ADOPTED together at the end of this month! Thank you #COICommunity!! WE DID IT #Rescue#AdoptDontShop#SeniorPetsOfIG
Disabled cats rule"I fostered Rasputin's whole litter and decided to keep him back to making sure that he'd never be overwhelmed. When I first brought them home I thought his eye had just not opened yet - only to discover it'll never open. He has limited vision in his remaining eye. As a result of his vision being compromised, he is very shy and can easily be overwhelmed. He has other chronic health issues, but that doesn't set him back! He will be 13yrs old this year and still going strong. People should welcome disabled pets into their home.” - @siriusblack.adventurecat#SpecialNeedsCat#Love#AdoptDontShop
