Help with vet care & TNR

Update posted by Evelyna Radoslavova On Oct 13, 2020

After recuperating from an intense couple of weeks in Sofia, I was finally able to tally up all that I have spent and done for "my" colony, and here is the final result: I have had my elderly neighbor's two cats fixed at my expense; caught, neutered and released four cats back to the colony (mom and three black kittens from the first litter); spayed and rehomed the fourth (Honey, the tuxedo); treated and rehomed two injured strays found elsewhere; and placed, after having them vetted, the five six-week-olds from the second litter (in the original pictures) in paid foster care, and am working with my contacts to find good forever homes for them! The final count is: SEVEN cats who will not contribute to the overpopulation problem in Sofia, and EIGHT (hopefully) rehomed. I have to say I am pretty damn proud of all the work I did, against all odds (try catching the one unfixed semi-feral black kitten while avoiding the constant surveillance of the anti-neutering colony caretaker!) I am also not proud for "stealing" the babies in the dead of night and separating them from their mama, but if I had left them, they would not have had the care they needed, would likely not have been rehomed and might not have survived the winter (as has happened with a lot of the kittens previously born in that colony). I have learned a lot, both about working with strays and about the cost and quality of vet care in Sofia, and intend to continue next year. I have collected some of the vet receipts (not all, as I was paying in cash a lot and not always careful to request a receipt when collecting the cat and getting instructions) and I will provide them to existing donors upon request. Here is a link to the detailed cost accounting: https://1drv.ms/x/s!AlziRG-STTXkiu0V45lGr11BxruDVA...
