November Edition

Thanks to the support of loyal donors like you, we've been very busy this month protecting cats around the country. Here are just a few of our current projects and successes:

Adoptable Cats: Patch and Romeo
Adoptable Cat - Romeo

What’s black and white and gray all over? Adorable kittens Patch and Romeo! Our president found these cuddly, rambunctious brothers outdoors along with their four siblings. We’ve had a blast socializing this formerly feral bunch in our office, but now it’s time for these fun little furballs to find a forever home together. We hate to say goodbye, but hope you will say hello to Patch and Romeo!

National Feral Cat Day Sweeps the Nation
National Feral Cat Day 2010

This year’s National Feral Cat Day was our most successful yet. With nearly 170 registered events in 36 states, news coverage online and in print, and thousands working to get the message out about feral cats, the 10th annual National Feral Cat Day pushed the movement to humanely care for cats further and ever before.
Check out some of the events that occurred the weekend of October 16, 2010.

Help Us Advocate for TNR in St. Thomas!
St. Thomas Cat

Since 2008, The Cat Café TNR Project in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, has helped keep feral cats out of shelters and humanely stabilize the cat population on the island. But recently, the Mahogany Run Condominium Association revoked its participation in the project without giving The Cat Café Project a chance to address their concerns. We’ve stepped in to ask the Mahogany Run Board of Directors not to turn back the clock on this lifesaving program.
Read about it and sign the petition on our Care2 blog.

Taking Action Against Ordinances
Yuma Cat

Last week, we learned that the city council in Riverbank, California, was considering an ordinance that would interfere with Trap-Neuter-Return. We rallied local supporters and contacted the city council to encourage them not to waste time and money on cruel ordinances and to choose the humane option instead—and it worked! On Monday, the council voted unanimously for TNR. City council members in Yuma, Arizona are similarly considering an ordinance for feral cats.

PETA is Wrong about Outdoor Cats – Dead Wrong
Happy Outdoor Cat

Late last month, PETA published an article perpetuating harmful misconceptions about feral cats, essentially stating that these healthy animals are “better off dead.” Alley Cat Allies responded loud and clear on our website and to every news outlet that republished PETA’s misguided article, and made our voice—your voice—heard: It is in no animal's best interest to be killed. Feral cats are healthy in their outdoor homes, and we have the science to prove it.
