Project CatSnip began in 2008 when the feral cat coordinator for Purrfect Cat stumbled upon a colony of feral cats. To begin with, she estimated there were twenty or so cats in the colony. As trapping and neutering of the colony progressed, it was discovered that it was an ever-expanding colony—basically, a dumping ground for the unwanted. Over the next ten months, more than 40 cats were trapped, neutered and returned to the colony; and a few of the more social cats were placed in foster homes so they could eventually be seen at our adoption events.
At that time, PCR promoted CatSnip at adoption clinics and our (then) relatively new website, and we received many donations from people interested in helping feral-specific cats. In the time since, our site has fallen into neglect because of some technical issues and the loss of a couple of key volunteers. As a result, programs like CatSnip have not received the attention and support they deserve and require.
We will be working in future to completely revamp purrfectcatrescue.org, but in the meantime, anyone interested in contributing to Project CatSnip—both to keep existing colonies well-fed, and to help spay and neuter cats in recently discovered colonies—can send their donations to the following address. All contributions will be forwarded to our Feral Cat Coordinator and allocated for the support of CatSnip.
