A Letter From Bett Sundermeyer,
BARC (Houston ‘s animal control or city pound) is overflowing with cats/kittens (it is kitten season). Euthanasia is at an alarming rate to make room for more. You can help stop this by fostering a cat or litter. BARC doesn’t want to keep litters because it takes several weeks for them to be big enough to spay/neuter and adopt out.
Your bathroom or laundry room could save lots of tiny lives. If it’s a nursing litter, the momma cat will do most of the work. All you need to provide is a safe spot and some food and water.
I was at BARC last weekend and saw at least 4 momma cats with nursing litters (that’s after I pulled 3 litters myself). I also saw several litters of bigger kittens that were eating on their own but still too small to spay/neuter. They all REALLY need to get out ASAP as they are at risk.
I also saw several adult cats with upper respiratory infections (URI). This is like a human cold… sneezing, runny eyes. It’s pretty easy to treat and the animal is good as new in 7-10 days. But, something like URI is a reason for animals to be killed. If you could take a sick kitty until he/she gets well, it will literally save his/her life.
PLEASE CONSIDER FOSTERING TODAY. It will truly save lives.
I will be at BARC this morning (Sat) from about 11:30-1:30. If you would like to come to BARC during that time, I will help you thru the foster process. My cell number is below.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
PLEASE FORWARD AND CROSS POST THIS MESSAGE.
