Furiends, many people and companies want to help feral felines. There is Love Your Feral Felines near where I live. And not too far from me, a feral colony was at risk. But kind humans stepped in to help them, and a company contributed $10,000 to help these felines.
A dozen cats were living in a makeshift shelter in the corner of a parking lot. They had lived there for 22 years, and some of the humans caring for these felines were employees of Northrup Grumman. This only makes sense, since the parking lot was for the facility that company operated.
A new property management company took over, and one of the first things they did is tell the humans caring for the felines they needed to take down the shelter. Furiends, you know as well as I do that this would have been a death sentence for the felines living there.
The six humans who had been taking care of the feral colony for years were stunned. They asked for time to trap and relocate the felines. And the property management company granted that time, with their tenant, Northrup Grumman, pushing them to do so.
It took a while, but the kind humans helping these feral cats were able to trap all of them. Five of the cats in this feral colony found furever homes. The rest of the felines went to a facility near Santa Barbara. This facility, named VIVA, sits on 42 acres of land. The relocated felines will have lots of room to roam!
And Northrup Grumman came through with a donation to cover the expenses of this move. They gave $10,000 to People and Cats Together. This group worked very closely with the volunteers to help them get the felines to safety.
Like one of the humans helping these feral cats, I am happy they are safe. But I do not like how their home for 22 years was taken away from them. It doesn’t make any sense, furiends and the property management company who decided to do this deserves many swats!
