Does anyone know who is caring for the cat colony living in the MTA parking lot of the BQ station at Prospect Park?
I will begin feeding them regularly and plan for a TNR but don't want to mess up their feeding schedule if someone is already caring for them...
Three babies, a momma and about 6 others. Some friendlies.
Cat Colony: Prospect Park BQ station parking lot
If you are TNR certified then you should have access to the Yahoo listserve provided through Neighborhood Cats and the Mayor's Alliance. Put this post on that listserve and you will get a better reply as you will reach TNR people throughout NYC. Also they have an index of all registered colonies.
To see if these cats are TNR's check for an eartip, if they have one then they are already neutered. I've attached a pic of Mia, a sweet neutered adult who was TNR'd who is looking for a home in the NYC area, so you can see what eartips look like.
If there are babies then clearly some are not eartipped. Depending on how old those babies are they may or may not be able to be socialized. If you have not already contact Neighborhood Cats for the Socializing Feral Kittens course.
I'm not certified but will be on the 7th. Very familiar with ear tipping, thank you. None are yet but rumor of the mta workers is someone is caring for them. I have reached out to neighborhood cats an feral cat initiative. I know the process very well and work in the rescue world, but wanted to reach out here as well. Thanks for all your advice.
Unfortunately I don't have any info but I do want to commend you on taking the initiative to help these cats. You are awesome!
awe, thanks leozoeypiper!
I agree, you are awesome. Don't know how much experience you have trapping or where you're located but we have a TNR project planned for the 30th. If you'd like to come by one of the nights we're trapping to help out or just observe send me an email (it's my user name at gmail.com) or PM me. We need more people like you!Go do something useful.
Yes! Thank you so much for taking the time to be concerned about stray cats. Only an amazing angel such as yourself would be so kind.
I have also been trying to get involved with a bunch of stray kittens in my neighborhood. Someone told me to post a sign up and I did so tonight. I will be going to a TNR training this weekend also.
Does anyone have any more info on getting stray kittens adopted possibly? I would love to see them in a great home and all the organizations seem to be overcrowded, the ASPCA (which has a bad rap anyways) seems nonresponsive.
Also, does anyone know if these cats in the church on Bedford and Rogers have already been spayed? Seems like one of the gray kittens has an ear tage already.
