Milo is a fluffy and energetic Siamese. He loves to greet people with his large plume of a tail sticking straight in the air. His sister Allie, an equally pretty grey kitty, will gently rub against your leg with her purr motor going strong. They are just a few of a large number of cats who were living in a neighborhood in Fremont until sadly they lost their one and only friend and caretaker.
A member of the Feral Cat Foundation heard their caretaker was about to move out leaving this mostly fixed colony to fend for themselves. So she began to feed and care for the cats while foster homes could be found. It appeared there was hope for Milo, Allie and the rest of the gang until neighbors began speaking out and protesting the feeding and care of the cats. Soon after this cats from the neighborhood began disappearing. Some ended up at the shelter, sadly one was euthanized before it could be rescued, and a few others are still missing. The remaining cats and their brave feeder became increasingly under threat from several residents. Her car was damaged when someone threw a rock at her, the few water and food bowls were stolen and one neighbor threatened to shoot the cats if they didn't stay out of his yard. So this trap-neuter-rescue situation is now in high gear!
There are two more kitties from this neighborhood who will be rescued from the Fremont shelter soon and will need temporary foster space. There are four being boarded at the vet, including Milo and his sister, who also need fostering. All kitties will be vet checked and fixed if needed, combo tested and vaccinated. Their ages are one to three years with a few more possibly a couple years older. Some are tame and affectionate and others are understandably a bit shy. The remaining ones appear to be feral and we have several farm options available for them. There are about 16 cats left at this time on this street.
If you can offer a spare room or garage for one or more of these kitties please let us know! We would like to get them to safety as soon as possible. If you aren't sure about how to foster a cat just email us and we'll tell you more about it. Also alert us if you know a vet who would give free room and board for a while or if you would like to sponsor a cat and can cover the boarding fee. It would help one more kitty get out of harm's way.
Emails will be responded to quickly. Thank you!
