Report on Odawara over breeding cats.
This is Tominaga.
Thank you so much for your support for Odawara cats.
☆Cats on the 1st floor.
Some cats have runny noses.
I asked the owner to look carefully at those cats.
I also told the owner how to give them the antibiotic.
Some cats can’t use the toilet well, and the bad smell became strong.
I cleaned the floor and change the matting, but they will do it again.
When it becomes warm, less matting we make for a make better situation.
Everyone has good appetites.
Time for meal.
As soon as I start to open the can, they get closer and closer.
Look at them!
This is amazing, that some cats draw close to my feet.
When I showed them the food with a spoon, some let me touch them!
Most of them are still hiding.
This is the first time to touch them!!
I was very happy.
No diarrhea this time,
Thank you so much for your support for Odawara cats.
Odawara over breeding cat report.
The furniture smelled strongly, but changed little by little with the addition of a clean table and second-hand chest.
However, it was still only half done.
We still want to change so many things.
This is a new cat tower.
Cats grind their nails so hard, and we must already repair it.
This is one aspect of over breeding.
But cats like to be in a clean room, and it is worthwhile.
I am glad you like it.
Will it be comfortable?
Thank you so much for your support, sending so many blankets and rugs.
They are easily frightened, skittish.
How about covering the table with a blanket, like a Kotatsu.
Opening the blanket, it is like this.
So many cats are in there, and it looks very warm.
Report of Odawara cat overbreeding.
Still some cats are skinny but mostly all cats are gaining weight.
It takes more time to make friends with the cats on the first floor.
But there are some cats that are coming down, and some draw closer to my leg!
Thank you for your support.
Thank you so much for your donation.
Now volunteers wish to buy a cat tower which could help coax the hiding cats to come out.
It cost about 7000 yen.
See how they are.
Odawara overbreeding cats: Ana and Elsa found new families.
We wish you a great happiness.
Thank you so much for your support for Odawara over-breeding cats.
I deeply appreciate your support for the rescue of 77 cats from the Odawara over-breeding case.
We, Inuneko Kyusainowa, got this information from Tanpoponosato.
In Kamakura, Kanagawa prefecture, an over-breeding collapse happened at the same time.
The schedule of removal of cats was rushed.
The first priority was to rescue all of the cats, to prevent their killing.
In Odawara, lack of sterilization caused the cat population to increase.
The owner couldn’t take care of them any more, especially regarding financial issues.
We decided to do sterilization and find foster families.
We, Inuneko Kyusainowa, brought 77 cats to TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital and provided necessary medical care, vaccines and sterilization.
Tanpoponosato took 8 kittens from among the 77 cats, and will find foster families.
One cat had a severe diaphragm hernia, and passed away before the operation.
After sterilization, the cats in Odawara won’t continue to breed.
But there are not enough people to see to their care, and there’s not enough food.
It is not so easy to rebuild these lives.
The distance between Kawasaki and Odawara became a major obstacle.
Unfortunately, 3 cats passed away from malnutrition while we waited for answers to our request for volunteers,
Fortunately Mrs.Tominaga stepped up to enlist volunteers, and now she is trying to fix the system.
She is one who helped with rescue activity at Odawara and Kamakura positively.
Sadly, before we could fix the system, there were some tragedies.
The environment was rough, and far from the life that people and cats can share together.
But slowly it’s getting better, with your donations of cat toilets, toilet sand, dishes, cleaning equipment, detergent, curtains, towels, etc.
We have to work on more aid, and must do necessary health checks.
Most of them are frightened, but we can touch some.
If we take care of them one by one, they may open their hearts.
If we can find volunteers who will keep cats temporarily, and do toilet training, we can find foster families.
We can’t demand that the owner bare the economic burden.
I reported about Odawara over-breeding cats in this blog.
But the scope of our activity is wide, encompassing Fukushima, animal welfare centers, animal shelters and the animal hospital.
So we created a new blog for the Odawara over-breeding cats, and Mrs.Tominaga will manage it.
This doesn’t mean that I have quit the Odawara over-breeding cats case.
I will sometimes write articles in this new blog.
★The financial report of Odawara over-breeding cats.
Here I want to inform you that we gathered donations of 811,127 yen by August 14.
We closed the donation campaign on the 15th.
If additional donation occurs, I will report again.
This donation was used for medical treatment, vaccination, and sterilization.
My estimate was 966,600 yen.
It is a severe life for these cats, going back home after the sterilization.
The owner can’t perform health checks, and I had to take the sick cats again and again.
I couldn’t quit, even if I have to pay from my own pocket.
The excess charge at TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital is about 1,000,000 yen.
But I founded this animal hospital to save animals, and I have got so many donations from many people.
I am satisfied if this hospital can be used for animals.
The management of this hospital is not so easy, as we also have so many alley cats.
All the staff cooperate together to save animals and get through this.
Again I deeply appreciate your donations for Odawara over-breeding cats.
