Because now “Lesė” is experiencing financial shortcomings, our program
“Catch-Neuter-Release” (CNR) is temporarily on hold, but we are still waiting
for calls and letters from people, letting us now that there is a cat in need
of our help.
Text - The
sum of money needed for the yard has already been donated. The catching and
neutering of the animals will begin shortly. Thank You very much :)
Text - Not the entire sum needed has been donated yet.
Yard no. 2 We hung up several ads
about the CNR program, and though, truthfully, we did not expect anyone to
answer, we got a letter from the people of one yard. There is a rather big yard
in Uzupio street
7 and a lot of homeless cats can be seen there. We believe that the cats are
fed not only by the neighbors but also by the personnel of a store nearby. Just
as we entered the yard we saw two cats, but we believe there will be more. A
donation of 100-150 LT is needed to begin with the CNR program in this yard.
Yard no. 3 One day, going through a
yard, our volunteer Laura noticed so many cats, that she named the whole cat
colony “The Harem”. It is safe to say the Harem consists of at least 13 cats.
Unfortunately, nobody confessed to be feeding the cats, but we know that so
many cats could not survive on their own. Some of the kittens look and feel
really poorly and probably will not make it, but at least we could help the
grown-up cats by sterilizing them so that they do not have any more kittens, which
will most likely get sick and die. Because of the amount of cats in this yard,
we fear that one day someone will get fed up with this situation and call the
homeless animals catching services, which will only solve the problem
temporarily until more cats come to live in this yard. We are still trying to
find the people who feed these cats and trying to find the best solution to
this problem. We are willing to ask all the people living near this yard to
help feed the cats – the food would be provided by us. Also we will hang ads
about the benefits of neutering and try to make the lives of these cats easier.
For this yard, the donation of 300 LT is needed to begin the program.
Yard no. 4 Basically it is not a yard, but just one cat. The cat lives live
somewhere not far from our shelter, but we are not sure where exactly. We even
put a collar on him, asking the person feeding the cat to contact us, but
unfortunately nobody answered. The cat comes to us for food quite often. He is
very nice, but also very shabby looking. We hope that by raising money for the neutering
we could even bring the cat into our shelter and see if he fits in. The cat is
very beautiful - he has long, red hair. Even if the cat would not fit in our
shelter the neutering would minimize the
risk of cat fights, because now we see that the cats’ body is full of wounds
from fights with cats and other animals. We believe the cat is being fed
somewhere but we also feed him in our shelter. The donation needed for the neutering
of the cat is 40 LT.
Yard no. 5 [pictures 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]
Today I had the opportunity to be in the stud farm where my dad rides. During
the competition that was being held there I witnessed him win first place in
his age group. To be honest, I did not see so much of the competition because I
was walking around and looking for homeless cats and asking the people working
there about the situation of these cats (professional disease of a volunteer :)
What I found out was: there are 4 female cats living there that are old enough
to have kittens, 4 male cats and 3 kittens. One of the kittens
found his home today J and for the others I will try to find homes as soon as possible. The big cats really feel good in this stud
farm; they are being fed and taken care of, but they also need to be neutered.
The neutering is needed in order to prevent the cats from breeding. The donation
needed for the procedure is 360 LT.
Yard no. 6 (Daivos letter) In the yard
of Mulūnų street
3 there are 5 cats living. The cats are fed by the people living nearby, but
they live on the street. The cats sit on windowsills, cars; drag trash from the
trash bin, the smell of these cats is scent when you open the door. Neighbors
let their pets hang out in the yard not thinking about the danger and consequences
of such actions. We would appreciate it if these cats would be disease free,
couldn’t mark their territory and would not be able to breed. In order to help,
the donation of 200-250 LT is needed.
In the nearest time we will try to
photograph these animals or at least some of them.
There are a lot of similar stories and these news will be updated regularly.
