Long time New Orleans animal rescuer Kim Baxter has trapped and spayed and neutered more than 1,000 feral cats. Word gets around fast in this line of work, so it's no surprise that she was among a group of volunteers who received a distress call....

AWWWW, THANX SOOOOO MUCH, 4 THIS *UPLIFTING* STORY,
BARABCAT, : GREEN STAR COMIN UR WAY ! XXXXXXX

KIM & HER GROUP OF HELPERS & EVRYONE ELSE WHO CONTRIBUTED,
IN WHATEVA WAY WITH THE DOGGEHS & IN KIM'S OTHER PROJECTS, ARE
AMAZING & WONDERFUL PEOPLE, WITH LOVING, COMPASSIONATE HEARTS !
XXXXXXXXXX



** TNR,** IS A HUMANE & SUCCESSFULL WAY, TO HELP CONTROL THE OVA
POPULATION OF STRAY & FERAL KITTEHS, WHO DO NOT KILL-TORTURE,
NATIVE WILDLIFE NEARLY AS MUCH, B/C THEY ARE WELL FED BY VOLUNTEERS
ON A DAILY BASIS !!!

AFTA BEING * DESEXED*, THERE IS MUCH MORE HARMONY IN THE "COLONIES",
B/C THERE IS VERY LITTLE FIGHTING, AS BREEDING PARTNERS, BECOMES A
NON ISSUE !
THE KITTEHS IN THEIR *HOME* COLONIES, ARE STILL ABLE TO HOLD ONTO
THEIR OWN TERRITORIES THO, SO THAT DESIRE IS NOT *TAKEN AWAY* &
THAT'S A GD THING !!!
THIS MEANS THEY ARE NOT * ROAMING* ALL OVA THE NEIGHBOURHOOD,
MAYB GETTING RUN OVA BY CARS, : ATTACKED BY DOGGEHS, : TORTURED
BY SADISTIC HUMANS (LIKE JON S.) ETC. !!!

OF COURSE, THERE WOULDN'T B SO MANY STRAY & FERAL KITTEHS, IN THE
1ST PLACE, IF *PREVIOUS* OWNERS, WERE RESPONSIBLE & CARED ABOUT
THEM PROPERLY, BY GETTING THEM DESEXED, WHILE YOUNG, & NOT
ABANDONING THEM WHEN THEY MOVE HOUSE, OR JUS GET *TIRED* OF
LOOKING AFTA THEIR NEEDS !!!


JON S., GO & FIND A QUICKSAND PATCH TO PLAY IN !!!

THERE IS NO NEED 4 UR DISGUSTING & BARBARIC VIEWS, ON THIS
PG, THIS WEB SITE & LEAST OF ALL, ON THIS DAY, OF OUR WHOLE YR !!!!!!!

JUS B/C U ARE HAVING A ROTTEN XMAS, IT DOESN'T GIV U THE RIGHT,
TO TRY & MAKE OTHER FOLKS MISERABLE TOOOOO !!!!!!!

AFTA READING UR REPULSIVE & LOATHSOME COMMENTS, I KNOW, U
HAV *** LOST UR HUMANITY*** !!!!!



MERRY XMAS & A HAPPY NEW YEAR, TO EVRYONE ELSE !!! XXXXXXXX

Wonderful story, thank you Kim for all your hard work. Thank you Barb for sharing this story.
Jon S. I'm sorry you are so miserable, I am a cat lover and I am offended by your remarks.

Wonderful story, so,pleased that someone took care of these.
To those remarks made re cats, I would like you to know that we have taken in 4 dogs and 4 cats, all strays, we have had them all checked, shots etc and unless required sooner, all 8 go for an annual check up, boosters etc. (costs about $1000.00 per vista fir all 8)the point being is that we love animals be them dog, cat, rabbit, bird etc etc, they become part of your life-they give so much and expect so little in return. Just remember there are NO BAD ANIMALS only bad people who made them that way

Noted. I did read this story the other day but it's great to scan it again. Bless that woman and her team for daving Momma Adele and all her puppies. In the picture, I especially like the second female with no name. If I were closer and lived in a house {rather than an apartment} I'd snap her up in a heartbeat. Thanks ssso much, BarbCat.

Jon S, your comments are completely off-topic and absolutely cruel. How you can talk about putting a skinned alive and/or gutted alive cat on someone's doorstep is beyond me. It is animal cruelty and speaks of a depraved mind to even consider it.

I posted before, but this was the first time I get a "thank you" from someone trying to sell their goods on line - total abuse of the site, this person gets free advertising.
