We started TNR (Trap, Neuter and Return) in Naraha-machi, Fukushima.
We started TNR (Trap, Neuter and Return) in Naraha-machi.
This is Kido station on August 22th. Afterwards, the wooden board was installed and we couldn’t go in.
We checked the food remaining at the requested area and set the capture cage.
This place is about 50m from the checkpoint. We saw a skinny american short hair cat on the street.
We set the capture cage with baked bonito.
She must have been very hungry and went into the cage quickly. But.........
I always check to see if they have given the birth or not.
Lift up the capture cage and look at the belly. It was obvious that she was in lactation.
Even if she finished lactation, if she seems to have given birth, we can’t capture her until checking on the existence of kittens.
As soon as we let her out from the cage, she walked up the slope to a house. We left food and water, and will check next time.
Since then, I have been worried about this cat. One day, one volunteer went there for feeding. I felt relieved. I hope she can take care of the kittens safely. Next time, I will check them, and leave a note to the neighbors.
