BARN CAT BUDDIES PROGRAM
October 4, 2013
Barn Cat Buddies was doing TNR in our area before almost anyone knew what the initials stand for. I met Diane, the founder, years ago when I was doing scrapbooking programs. I started helping her feed a feral colony almost by accident. She had trapped, neutered and returned over a dozen cats to the colony. This was in 2007 and I have been feeding that colony ever since There were 16 cats when I started but over the years, I have rehomed fifteen, two died of natural causes, some were dropped off (they were rehomed) adopted two myself, and we now have five in the colony, whom I see and feed every day. I have also helped Diane with feeding and trapping other colonies. Now with Sara as president and the organization has expanded and associated with Angels of Assisi, they are doing fantastic work with and for cats and those who love and care for them. There are hundreds of casts alive and happy today because of Barn Cat Buddies' efforts.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
It would take a miracle, but I would like to see the people of this area be more responsible for their cats and give Barn Cat Buddies less work to do. Wouldn't that be a perfect world?
