On Wednesday 27th Aug 2014, at about 8pm, our trapper came down with a friend from CWS assisting to trap our new Science cats. Unfortunately, over the weekend Maxwell disappeared. Marie and Einstein were still around nonetheless, Marie continuing to be over-friendly to passers-by while Einstein mews away safely concealed in the bushes.
Without too much trouble, both cats were trapped successfully! Marie was enticed with food into a carrier very quickly, while Einstein was caught with a pressure-release trap, all under the supervision of two of our feeders, and with the assistance of a CWS member. They were sent to a vet the next day for sterilisation.
On Saturday, 30th August 2014, at 2.30pm, our trapper returned with Marie and Einstein sterilised. Marie turned out unsurprisingly to be in heat when we sent her for the surgery. In normal cases, this would increase the cost of sterilisation a fair amount, but thanks to CWS, the two sterilisations this time were free of charge.
Nonetheless, we do have a bill for the trapping/transportation, as well as the 2 days of boarding for the recovering cats, which amounts to $90.00 (The bill is attached below). We’ll put up an appeal for this on our Facebook, with a running tally of amounts donated until the full amount is attained, whereby the appeal will be closed.
