Can also be a business that needs mousers…nurseries, landscaping companies, tow-yards- any business that is seeing mice/rats.
Cats accepted for this program are cats whose current living situation puts them in danger or are losing their homes due to construction. NNN posts on Facebook when we have a need. Please understand that it is not possible to relocate most of the Trap Neuter Return TNR cats.
- Cats are fixed , vaccinated and treated for worms, fleas and ear-mites. All cats come with their medical paperwork including a rabies certificate. ALL cats have a LEFT ear-tip.
- NNN asks that the “home” provide regular food and water. Cats will “mouse” even if you provide food.
- NNN brings a large wire crate to hold the cat/s for about 10 days. This period of time gives them a chance to acclimate to their new environment. NNN will also provide food/bowls, litter and litter box for this holding period. The crate should be located in a covered area. NNN will provide large sheets to cover the crate giving the cats a sense of security during the “hold” time. Putting a cardboard box in the crate adds a sense of security.
- After about 10 days, you can open the door (preferably at dusk) and they will slip out at their own speed.
While they are acclimating to their new home you should maintain a regular schedule of feeding at the same spot where they were held if possible. You may not see them for a few days as they adjust. Keep the feeding station consistent. We recommend that food be put out in daytime only to discourage other wildlife like raccoons and skunks from eating at the feeding station. Cats will not starve themselves. They will come to eat. They will hunt.
