Sweet Pea and kittens -- trapped!
Yesterday at lunchtime I received an email "invitation" to a surprise trapping event on campus -- a beautiful black and white mama cat and four teenies (two weeks old) in one of the campus construction sites. Construction workers had found the four kittens in a construction ditch!!!!! Within mere minutes Hyde Park Cats had mobilized several members to the site, along with a trap, a towel, and some temptingly stinky wet cat food. Kittens were removed and placed into the trap, and from there it was only a matter of time until Mama -- now named Sweet Pea -- was also in the trap. The family is now safe inside, but we are seeking a foster placement and, of course, future adopters. We will also need moolah for everyone's vet care. Thanks to Nadia for emailing us right away and to everybody who helped out this family! And just in time: today it's snowing.
