This is my second year running the Hollywood Half Marathon - this is only the second year of the event - and last year I did it just for me.  This year I'd like to run it for the feral cats of Hollywood and of all of Los Angeles and the people who do what they can everyday to help these animals.  Fixnation helped me help the 2 feral cats that moved in under my Hollywood bungalow 2 years ago (pictured here, happy and healthy).  Sure I fed these cats everyday but couldn't even get close to them since they were completely wild - so how was I supposed to help them if I couldn't touch them?  Hollywood is FULL of these unwanted, starving, helpless felines and it certainly didn't need any more.  And with traps loaned to me by Fixnation I caught both of them and brought them to Fixnation and for a small fee they spayed and neutered both of these cats.  This small act kept thousands, maybe millions of kittens from being born to the hard streets of Hollywood.  We all have moments where we see a need but sometimes don't know how to go about fixing the need and helping the being and that is where Fixnation came in for me.
