      Community Cat Care: Supporting homeless cats and kittens

      When you take a look around your neighborhood, do you notice cats in your area that don’t seem to have a home? Have you found a litter of kittens and wondered whom to call (and, with kitten season approaching, this may be more common than you might think)?

      Join community cat experts Teri Monbureau and Christine Hernandez for a free workshop introducing Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR), feral cat management practices, local resources for feral cat spay/neuter, and proper use of humane traps. This workshop will offer the knowledge and skills needed to help feral kittens and stray cats in your community.

      This workshop is free; donations are always appreciated and all funds go directly toward The Dancing Cat's mission of connecting loving, wonderful adult cats with their forever homes. All ages welcome!

      About the Presenters:
      Christine started her cat career in 2010 at the San Jose Animal Shelter, socializing special needs, anxious, and shy cats & kittens. Feeling she needed to do more to help prevent so many cats from entering the shelter, she immersed herself in TNR. To date, Christine has helped make sure that over 500 cats will not have unwanted, over-populating litters of kittens through her trapping efforts. In addition to her TNR work, Christine cares for 5 community cat colonies.

      Teri got involved with cat rescue in 2014 volunteering for feral colony care with 13th Street Cats, a San Jose local rescue organization. A few weeks of care and feeding of several managed colonies made her aware of the pronounced need for additional trappers to spay/neuter newly arrived community cats as well as to get sick or injured colony members to a vet for treatment. She attended a TNR training session, watched YouTube videos on trapping cats, and has been a proponent of it ever since!
