CatNappers

CatNappers Provides low cost spay and neuter for feral and semi-feral cats in Albany,Georgia and surrounding areas. We exist because people didn't spay and neuter.

CatNappers is a low cost Trap, Neuter and Return program for feral, abandoned and stray cats. It places the cat back into the neighborhood or environment that it knew and has been living in. We do not remove, we do not relocate.

Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS) kills 1 in 3 humans infected with this disease from infected mice.

SOURCE
Humans can get HPS when they come into contact with infected deer mice or their urine, dropping or
saliva.

PREVENTION
Avoid aerosolization - Never sweep or vacuum mouse droppings.

Take care when cleaning rodent-infected areas by wearing rubber or latex gloves. Thoroughly spray/soak
area with a disinfectant or mixture of bleach and water to reduce dust. Wipe/mop area with a sponge or papertowel. Wash hands thoroughly. Double-bag
contaminated materials and dispose of them in covered containers.

Avoid activity inside poorly ventilated buildings that
may be infested with rodents. Open windows and doors and air out prior to occupancy. Do not play with
or handle any live or dead rodents. Keep food in rodent-proof containers.

Whenever possible, adopt feral cats that have been through the Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program to keep mice at bay. The TNR program also provides vaccinations and an ear-tip, verifying they have been
through the program and are unable to reproduce.

They will need to be kept in an enclosed area (barn, garage etc.) for 2-3 weeks to learn this is their new
home and will need to be fed daily, as mice are more of a toy.

SYMPTOMS (similar to influenza)
Early symptoms: chills, fever, muscle aches.

Later, 1-2 days: dry cough, headache, nausea, vomiting, shortness of breath.

GOOD TO KNOW
Most prevalent in rural areas. Campers and hikers more likely to catch disease because tents rest on the ground.

Cannot be spread between humans.

This is definitely the life of those of us trying to help cats. It can be so defeating because people will go all out for dogs, but cats...you are usually on your own. It's overwhelming. But you keep trying and trying.

Are you squashing your cans?

We hope so — because every year thousands of animals die by getting their heads stuck in some human’s garbage. And while you might remember to cut the plastic rings that hold a six pack of beverage cans, are you remembering to crush those plastic jars that hold your kitty treats?

Any containers holding food items can be a death trap for animals when you throw them away, and a simple search in your Internet browser can pull up countless examples. Please remember this is one way you can help to save lives, just remember to think before you throw it away — is there any chance a creature could get caught in your garbage? They might get their head in, but they don’t have the hands to take hold and pull it out again. Crushing that round opening can make it impossible for them to get their head inside.

This isn’t new news for anyone, but it seems to be a message that pops up periodically, and then is forgotten. Don’t forget it, and don’t stop crushing cans – including plastic ones. If you cannot crush it, make sure to cover that opening tightly. Don’t forget the plastic bags, cut the handles… do you eat meat? If you’ve seen those stretchy cords holding chicken legs and wings close to the body, don’t just cut the cord once to remove it; cut it into multiple small pieces. An animal eating that whole cord just might end up with a bowel obstruction.

Your garbage can spell death for the animals who scavenge – please, be responsible and think before you discard. (Recycling requirements may vary from state to state, know regulations in your area).

**Update** I've been told several of the cats would make good house pets given TLC and understanding. I hope that someone will step up and give them a chance because they have to be moved from their current location and they have nowhere, at this point, to go. Thank you for any consideration for these cats.

We are desperately in need of homes for several cats and I have no descriptions at this point. We have a dire situation and need homes for nearly 25 cats who might be most suited to barn homes. I think they are mostly semi-feral or perhaps simply leery of people. Not to say that they might not be ok if someone were willing to work with one or two. Caretaker died tragically and suddenly and the cats have to be removed. I'm looking for anyone willing to help but need to know that they will be safe in every regard. I owe that to my friend. If you can help or suggest help we would be very grateful. Even people willing to foster would be a huge help. Euthanasia is not an option I want to have to consider. If interest please contact by messenger or phone text or email. [email protected] My phone has become a spam magnet so I usually only answer texts now, sadly.

When you're out there rescuing and TNVR'ing, don't forget the Mama!!! 🐱

When you rescue those irresistible kittens, you must also trap their mom. Mama cat needs to go to clinic for TNVR so that she doesn't produce countless other litters of kittens.

Are you aware that kittens are sexually mature at 4 months old and a female can get pregnant while nursing her latest litter?

Reproduction is BRUTAL on her system and robs her body of life-sustaining energy and nutrients.

Care about the mama cat like you care about the kittens. If she's friendly, find her a nice home. If she's feral, have her spayed so she can live the rest of her life without the stresses of mating and reproduction. She deserves it!

The last thing you want to hear is a tiny baby screaming in the woods at one of your colonies. Seriously, like we need more kittens?! No, they are everywhere and the season is not letting up. It's also overwhelming for us and everyone I'm sure after the shutdown last year. But last night there it was, screaming in the rain, wet, cold, scared, and lonely trying to locate mama or at least help. I'm so grateful for the kitten app on the phone, it brought it to me after a few minutes and it was soaked, but it has healthy lungs. I have no idea of the circumstances that it came to be there screaming in the rain.Thank God there was a nursing mother that made it her own! I wouldn't have known what to do. I don't do kittens, I do my best to prevent them!

General information

Trap, Neuter and Return has proven successful in reducing the numbers of feral (undomesticated) cats that are living on the streets. The only way to control the numbers is to reduce the possibility of breeding. For each cat killed many more are having babies daily. Common sense can tell you those numbers don't add up. If trap and kill, as has been the common method of dealing with this problem, worked we wouldn't have the numbers of feral cats that we now have today. Humane societies, since their inception, have used this method of trap and kill and the problem is worse than ever. The most humane and sucessful strategy is TNR, Trap, Neuter and Return. ADOPTIONS: Our adoption applications are designed to ensure that we are finding the best homes for our cats. Each has already been fixed and are up to date on necessary shots. Our adoption fess are $75.00. The questionaire is designed to make sure that we are matching each family with a cat that is best suited for them and to address any problems there might be. We do vet checks to ensure that the cats will be cared for after the leave our care. We don't have a shelter so these cats are presently in homes and are receiving the best care we can provide, we want to make certain that that will be maintained because each one is important to us, we've got a lot of time, love and money invested in each cat in our care. Our cats are important to us and we want them to be important to you as well. You can fill out an application for a cat by going to our website and filling out the application. WWW.thecatnappers.org

This is why over 75% of the population of cats that go into the shelter here are put to sleep and not re-homed. How is a cat doing what a cat was born to do harming the environment?
My parents have a mama cat who took up residence in their yard. They haven't fed her or anything. She must hunt. My mom is very allergic to cats. Now there are kittens, too. I don't live locally to help her remove them. She lives out Graves Spring Rd in Leesburg. Can your organization help?
Is there anyone out there who might foster 4 little kittens? My grandson took my truck home with him and he called to tell me there were 4 kittens in the bed. He brought them back to me but the mother has not come to get them. I have been feeding them with the replacement milk. 2 will eat but the other 2 will not. They also have matter in their eyes. I am so afraid they will die since I don't know what to do for them. The vets won't take them and I don't want to take them to the Humane Society. Please give me some input..........thanks.
We have lost our 16 year old cat before the storm Wednesday January 23. Please take a minute if you are in the area of West Doublegate and Marlow look to see if our Stripes is there.
Relaxing...
These kitties are SUPER URGENT, the shelter is full and they have pledges but need someone to come and save them!!! https://www.facebook.com/UrgentCatsofTiftCountyAnimalShelter/photos/a.2053368118238952/2167878526787910/?type=3&theater&ifg=1
please get in touch with me concerning a cat marla burley thanks
ISO a kitten. Maine C**n mix. Please share my post. My house has been without a pet for long enough. This is the color & markings I’m looking for,
Ok the other day I was talking with someone on here about how people keep dropping of cats in my ally. How you need to catch fix and release back. I did this last year. Well now I have two moms and seven babies. Husband went out to feed and now there is a silver tabby that was not has not been there. To those that drop these babies off. Please do it else where. That's bad to say but my anxiety over all these babies is through the roof! There is nothing I can do but water and feed. Just recently my baby of just 4 years has past. I have a vet bill already. This go around I can not fix and release. My only option is to feed water and pray for them. So prayers needed for all these beautiful babies! Thanks
Thank You & God Bless You For All you do for the fur babies. If people only knew what you did , they would not mind donating. I look at it this way. I never wanted cats,but people just dropped them off at my house. People tell me they will kill the,Well, that is against the Law if they are not on your property. Also,they keep snakes away, rats, others things that craw, move,lol. I have come to respect them. And Yes Love Them. And will hurt you over my fur babies. If you get them fixed, you will have a Life Long Friend. That means a lot more than the money you will spend to get them fixed. Just Saying ! Kim Renfroe Alford God Bless you.I would take them if I did not have so many. Thanks Mitch...
I wanted to see if it was possible for your organization to help a litter of four kittens and their mother in Dougherty County. They all appear very healthy and one of the residents is threatening to call animal control. She states she doesn't care if they euthanize them. 🙁 I have donated baked goods to raise funds for this group before and will be glad to do so again. I also make jewelry if we could sell that to help. If you can help or know someone than can please message me. Thank you in advance.
