Meet Luka, Mona, and Pixie!
Top to bottom, we have Luka, a male; Mona, a female; and Pixie, another male. They had spay/neuter surgery at The Anti-Cruelty Society and are currently in post-surgery recovery.
Sadly, we discovered that Mona is FIV+. You can learn more about FIV, or Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, here. FIV is fairly common among feral cats, but moreso among the males. We hope that Mona can stay healthy for a long time now that she is spayed -- she won't have to use her resources on pregnancy and nursing. We'll try to keep an extra eye on her and watch for illness.
