MYANMAR: Determined rescuer creates cat haven


Ko Cho, who has been rescuing, feeding, and caring for community cats in Myanmar (Burma) for several years, now has a good safe place for some of them to live, in Uranus, his lumber business.  We wish him much success with his business, which will help him in his work with the cats. Ko Cho is the only animal rescuer we are aware of in Myanmar. He also recently rescued and released two young crows, who have stayed around with their cat friends.

TNR for Italy’s cats

A handsome cat - his ear will be tatooed too to show that he's been neutered.

Another Spay Day took place at Castel Volturno, in southern Italy on February 24, 2012, as part of World Spay Day. Dr. Dorothea Friz, Founder of Lega Pro Animale, reports that 57 care takers caught 159 cats (109 females and 50 males), and they were all spayed/neutered in one day. A few of the clever cats thought twice about entering the traps; as soon as they can be caught, surgery will be done for them too.

Lega Pro Animale has conducted a highly successful TNR program for cats in southern Italy since 1986, greatly improving the well-being of the cats there.
