☆Collapse of over breeding in Odawara, 77 cats.
Past blog about overbreeding cats.
We have done the sterilization for all cats, but only healthy cats.
We take them back to the owners and discuss the issue.
There are so many problems, with the treatment of sick cats, finding foster families, and maintenance costs for all cats.
The owner has a warm heart for cats.
It kept increasing, and became 69 cats.
Then 8 kittens were born, and the totally reached 77 cats.
Also some cats were pregnant.
Then finally the owner gave up.
There were 46 unborn kittens.
If they were born, it would become 123 cats.
Tanpoponosato will find foster families for some of them.
Then finally 68 cats will go back to the owner.
This is a lot, but if the owner is healthy, she could take care of all of them for their whole life.
She is relieved at this point.
Right now, she has an issue of debt to the animal hospital (She brought some cats to the hospital but can’t pay for all.) And there will be medical costs in the future.
For some sick cats, we have to hurry the treatment.
I am going to bring one cat that is staying in the hospital to Odawara.
I want to discuss some details, such as whether she wants to find host families or not.
Thank you for donating the cages.
After we used it for Odawara cats, we will use for our donation events, and also lend to other associations.
There should be a basic relief headquarters form which anyone can borrow necessary things for rescue activity.
I want/need more time to make such a system.
These are Odawara cats after the sterilization in TNR Japan Animal Welfare hospital.
Our veterinarians and nurses have regular jobs, but they always cooperate with such emergency rescue activity.
This is a difference between us and other regular animal hospitals.
A volunteer will transfer these cats to Odawara.
A volunteer and a nurse load the cats into the car.
One boxcar is very convenient for animal activity.
It can carry many dogs and cats, and is also flexible.
