Happy Day Sonoma! I love the rain we’ve been getting and hope for more soon. The hills are sparkling green again and the creeks are running. I know we need more, but it sure does help.
I’ve discovered my precious dog, Doc, loves to play in the rain. He could have stayed out all day, especially on those days when it was pouring down. But alas, the human was not so inclined. We did walk for at least an hour each day, but then the two-legged one had to come in for dry clothes and warmth. I hope all your pups and kittens keep warm and dry on these rainy days.
Our first kitten of the season arrived on Feb. 14. She is only 6-weeks-old, so we are guessing she was born around the first of the year. We were concerned that with the weather so warm, we might get an early start. On March 2, Pets Lifeline is hosting a community cat spay/neuter day with our friends at Valley of the Moon veterinary clinic. Our Trap/Neuter/Release program is one of the best in the county.
If you have community cats (or ferals) in your neighborhood, please contact us. We will show you how to humanely trap them so we can get them spayed/neutered and then you can release them back into their habitat.
Believe it or not, we’ve seen a reduction in the kitten population in the last 10 years as a result of more access to spay/neuter. It is the best thing you can do to help prevent disease and overpopulation in our community.
