Funding is critical for this program to continue. So, the Cat Whisperers (Chandra, Sally, Lee, Karen, and others headed up by Maureen Minehan) who have been trapping and bringing them in for surgery have a plan so they can continue their project.
That is where you come in….help them help the local cats and kittens. You get a cool shirt designed by Chandra that will spread the word every time it is worn, and 100% of the proceeds got to the Cats!
Update Aug 2018 – This T-shirt fundraiser is over but stay tuned for the next one!
What is a Community Cat? Animal Control in Rosarito does not take cats and Tijuana will not take a feral cat that is unadoptable. Since most cats are not indoor pets just about every Baja cat is a Community Cat some are more feral than others.
Why are there so many? Community/Feral cats are booming in Baja. We have several mild winters and more people than ever are feeding them. Education and culture change has been slow. We often hear ‘They are not mine, why should I pay for their surgery?’ The locals still feel that poison and relocation are the preferred methods of dealing with them.
What to do? Several locals have worked within their community to hand out literature and explain the benefits of T-N-R to their guards and neighbors. They have taken on the responsibility to Trap, Neuter, and Return them to where they were trapped.
