SNIP HERE, SPAY THERE—AND NO MORE KITTENS!
HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!
You guessed it. January saw the first SNIP (Spay Neuter Impact Program) Cat Clinic of 2017 and Mom L and Dad P were there! I report on every SNIP clinic they volunteer in and I am so proud of calling them my Mom and Dad! You can take a peek at Mom L’s first clinic here. We made it our Blog For The Change 4 Animals post in July 2014.
Mom L works the early morning admission shift at the table where the rescue groups bring in the cats they have trapped for this clinic. There is another admission table where the general public can bring in cats they have trapped on their property or in their neighborhoods. All cats must be brought inside their traps, no cats in cat carriers are allowed in. This is one way to insure that SNIP is truly providing service to reducing the community cat population.
Here are just a few of the gorgeous cats who crossed Mom L’s check in table in January.
The volunteers and Vets and Registered Vet Techs all work like a fine oiled can of cat tuna. They can swiftly move to fill in if someone is absent and switch stations through out the day, going where there is most need.
Down time between getting patients ready for surgery. Do you see that blue chair in the foreground of my photo? That is where Mom L goes after doing admission check in. She helps capture data from each cat’s surgery including meds etc. from their cage tag to SNIP records.
All in all a very successful SNIP Cat Clinic where ninety community cats were spayed, neutered, treated for worms, fleas, vaccinated and where they received attention for wounds, even for bad fur mats on the long coated cats!
This youngster was the last cat Mom L admitted for the day.
