We just got fantastic news from Keetmanshoop!
A kind and caring lady started feeding a stray cat a few years ago and over time, more cats showed up and lots of cats had kittens and now there is a group of around 40(!!!) semi feral cats asking for food at the kind lady’s house!
This number is not only a big problem for the lady who cares about the cats, but also for her neighbors as there are many cat fights and lots of noise during the nights, the cats poo everywhere, taking dustbins apart and not to forget: as non of the cat was vaccinated against rabies, this is also a potential health threat for humans!
But luckily and thanks to donations, the Keetmans team was able to start trapping the cats last week and 10 cats (8 female and 2 male) are already sterilised and vaccinated! This is absolutely fantastic!!
The cats are trapped, sterilised and released back home, they will be looked after as before, but now they do not multiply and over time the group will get smaller and smaller. This is the only humane solution to such a problem!
The team hopes to catch more cats by next week, but all depends on the funds available and due to this they will host another dog walk on Saturday! We will post the info just now. Please everyone support Have a Heart Keetmans with a donation to make it possible for the team to help the cats and many other dogs and cats in Keetmans!
THANK YOU SO MUCH TO EVERYONE INVOLVED HELPING THE BEAUTIFUL KEETMANS CATS!!
