THE STORY:

Please meet Willow.  She is gorgeous, but she can only be loved from a distance, from only as near as she can trust you. Willow is a “community cat”.

Back in 1994, while I was out for a walk, I fell in love with a beautiful Siamese-mix, who had apparently carved out a niche for himself as part of a colony. Before I met him, I had never thought very much about feral cats, or wondered how they survive without belonging to a human. But naming this Siamese cat (Ben) made me start wondering how Ben and his friends were getting by.  And that’s how my occasional walks turned into every-day walks, and why I started carrying large bags of kibble in my car.

That year, very soon, kittens started appearing at Ben’s colony, and so began a huge change of focus in my life.  A wonderful woman named Carmen, from Community Concern for Cats, taught me a lot of trapping tips, and her husband, Sam, taught me how to make my own wire recovery cages.  But spay-neuter was too expensive for me to help others, too, so in 1998, in answer to that problem, Fix Our Ferals was “born”. 

The East Bay is home to hundreds (maybe thousands?) of “cat ladies” and “cat guys” whose stories are very similar to mine. Though we may have little else in common, we are bound together by our determination to stop suffering -- the humane way, through spay-neuter.  That’s why we MUST have more affordable spay-neuter, so that individuals and organizations are able to increase spay-neuters.

And because we all want to end suffering, we all need to support the re-opening of the Fix Our Ferals Spay-Neuter Center.  The clinic will benefit all of you who are working to end the suffering caused by overpopulation.  Please donate what you can, to re-open the Center and make spay-neuter affordable again!
