  • "Wile I was out feeding the birds I also ran across a "doogie doodoo" from our newest arrival. It was right in my walkway on a patio stone, so I figured since it was frozen, now would be better than later to remove it. Simple, just knock it loose. Not quite. I hit I with a stick and kicked it with the heel of my boot. I figured stronger tactics might brake the patio stone, so...... it is still there. "

    Haha I am just imagining that.

  • Later today I had to get some more wood in, so I quickly removed the now softer doodoo. BUT, I let my guard down and stepped in some other "deposits" anyway.

  • Steve,

    Will the new Spay and Neuter Clinic be able to help you? I don't know what their criteria is for their fees, but certainly there must be something they can offer. After all their goal is to reduce the number of abandoned cats and dogs. Surely the neutering and spaying of already abandoned animals fulfills that goal.

    There are states that have programs where they will spay or neuter feral cats (even those that are deemed not adoptable)for free to reduce the number of animals that will reproduce indiscriminately. These animals are spayed and neutered and released back into the territory they were taken from.

    It isn't much consolation to those of us that believe all creatures who depend on man for food, warmth and comfort should be re-released and not find a home. Surely the new Spay and Neuter Clinic will work with you.

  • I have been talking to them for about two months. Get promised to be put on the list, but never hear from them again unless I call, so I do not know where that will go.

  • The MTSNC is open every Tues. now they are doing surgeries today. They have openings for this month, give them a call.

  • Thanks. Do you happen to know their number?

    I believe I have to catch them the night before so I can restrict food and water and it would be good if I place them in a restricted area for about 2-3 days afterward to heal.

    Is that correct?

  • 931-684-5353

    All that is correct and you need to see if you qualify, it is a low income clinic but many who think they would not qualify do. It is also for shelter rescues. Definitely worth a call. If you don't qualify Anderson Vet. in Christiana is a low cost spay and neuter clinic for anyone. Humane Association sometimes has grants available age or income based that helps pay for all the surgery so check with them also. 684-kind

    The MTSNC 738 B. North Main St. is having an open house Jan. 28th open to all. 4-7 pm

  • If it goes by how I feel, I am ooold.

    We also have a daughter in college so you know any disposable income is already disposed.

    The Humane Assoc. was supposed to schedule a time, but that seems to have fallen by the wayside. These would definitely classify as rescues, but I am starting to think that is very subjective.

    My choices are narrow. Feed them or let them wander off and meet their fate.
