Camera Critters-Cat Collage

There is a small group of expats in Mazatlán, México who trap abandoned street and feral cats, take each to a local vet for health care and neutering after which they release the animals. Their ears are marked for identification. Like many cities, these undomesticated cats breed and produce many animals that continue the cycle. Too often the cats suffer diseases and crippling accidents but, if they're lucky, they are trapped and given a new lease on life by members of this group. I have participated with this group and went along for a photo shoot. I snapped these cats who had been neutered and are often fed by neighbors or individuals in the expat group who live here year long. It's a big job!! To see more CAMERA CRITTERS, Click here.

Great photos.

I currently feed a couple of feral cats. The local SPCA has spayed them for free.

We rescued our cat from living wild in a field. He looks like the cat in the bottom left. This is great.

I've read about this kind of volunteer group in another city, too, Kate.

My daughter took care of 11 wild cats like this and so far 7 have stayed for free room and board.

I also published a video of cats fighting or threatening to fight that I think you might enjoy. It is on my new blog, gobsmacks.

We had a cat show up on our porch a few years ago. Everyone told me, DO NOT FEED IT. You can guess what I did...fed it. We had it neutered and now it gets shots every year.

What ever happened to the birds that got rescued last year?
