In early February we found out that a mobile home park in Sacramento was scheduled for demolition on February 16, and  - get this -- 100-plus stray cats living there were certain to be ambushed when the bulldozers arrived.  An urgent call for help was placed asking for volunteers to assist in trapping as many cats as possible before the demolition date. Volunteers and organizations from Sacramento, Placer, El Dorado, Yolo and Solano counties have taken part.

We participated in the rescue operation on the night of February the 10th. This event was coordinated by Julie Lindsey and Kathy Monahan of Sisters Animal Sanctuary and involved the assistance of a number of community volunteers as well as volunteers from Feline Lifeline, The Animal Spay & Neuter Clinic, and Fieldhaven Feline Rescue & Adoption. The operation took in 41 cats that night.

Since then Sisters has coordinated follow-up operations. Volunteers have rescued over 150 cats and amazingly almost all of them have been placed in permanent homes. The cats have been spayed and neutered and tested for feline leukemia and FIV. The cats were also treated for ear mites and fleas, various wounds and dental problems.

This operation was a great success but more needs to be done. There are still nine friendly cats in need of homes and donations are still needed to cover vet bills.
