We oversee the colony of cats along with two neighbors and we work together to provide the cats with medical care, nourishment and shelter. We pay for their needs out of our pocket and I design gifts at zazzle.com from my photographs to raise money for the cats.

In the last year, we trapped many paid for their sterilization and vaccinations as well as preventative vaccines. We also saved a feral queen cats life along with her three five week old kittens.
The queen cat fought off a wild animal that attacked her kittens, the orange tabby kitten need medical care. I trapped her and her kittens and they all received medical care, however they needed to stay in the animal clinic for 21 days due to a serious infection.
Out of the 16 cats that we trapped, we were able to socialize and adopt five cats into forever homes, seven of the adult feral cats returned to the colony and the remaining four cats live with my husband and I.
I believe in the Alley Cat Allies cause and will continue to protect and improve the lives of feral cats in my neighborhood. Any feral or stay cat that I come in contact with will be given a bowl a food, fresh water and if I am able to do so I will trap them for spay, neuter and for medical care.
I will rescue and protect the feral cats from a life of hardship. They will always find food and water and the door open at my shelter. My husband and I and the two civic minded neighbors will always care for the feral cats in our neighborhood.
