On Sunday we did our last TNRM project for August at Geylang Lorong 37. We trapped a total of 8 cats for neutering and they returned to their respective territories this afternoon.
At the first micro-site we started trapping, there were 3 cats, one of whom is already neutered by our Sterilisation Volunteer some time ago on her own.
|Neutered cat named Alley|
We also trapped a black and white cat, and we were also very happy because we sighted the elusive ginger male cat that evening!
|Elusive ginger cat approaching trap|
|Hungry because as per protocol he was not fed that day|
|Yay for hungry cats! He entered trap safely eventually|
Then we headed to the residential building micro-site, where there is a small garden behind it. It was a bit of a problem there at first because there were some prayer food offerings on the grass and cats were hungrily eating it. Cats that are already not hungry are very hard to trap so we had to throw the food scraps away.
There are 3 tabbies and 1 black cat at this site. One of the tabbies is still nursing kittens which were nowhere to be found but she definitely gave birth 2-3 weeks ago. So we fed her while we trapped the others.

|Blackie came to us happily (secret weapon!)|
|The cats sniffing our kick-scooters|
|Blackie with a bit of trash stuck to his head!|
|Because he was rummaging in trash that was dumped!|
|...with super nice tabby markings|
|2 cats hiding under a car when we arrived|
|When this cat came out, the cat feeder put it in a carrier. Cooperative cat!|
|This guy took a while. Had to re-route human traffic while waiting on him|
|He is finally successfully trapped!|
|This kitten is mature for neuter so we trapped her too|
|Has unique grey markings on back, pretty!|
|This cat is already too pregnant to neuter, so we had to skip her|
|This cat is a neutered house cat. Allowed to roam, to our chagrin|
That concludes August! We neutered 21 stray cats this month. If we include our foster kittens, that's 3 more to the number paid out of our Sterilisation Fund. We are now investigating new TNRM projects for September. Thank you all for your support!
