The surgeries will be performed by Dr. Rachel Elliott at the Animal Clinic At Cambridge. It will cost $54 for one male and $86.25 for one female plus related medical expenses. The spay surgery (female cats) is more invasive than the nueuter surgery (male cats). Sometimes there are complications. Sometimes there is a need for antibiotics and meds. And sometimes there is a need for boarding. They also test them for leukemia and treat them for worms and fleas. I take care of them at my house during their 7 day recovery period.
As of March 13, 2019 there were 7 adult feral cats on the south side of Main Street from Riesbeck's to Orme Hardware. One needs to be neutered (Alex) and one needs to be spayed (Hope). There are also 2 juveniles and 1 of them needs to be neutered. (The census data changes from month to month - over the past two years 23 feral adults and 13 feral kittens have been adopted, 6 adults are missing and 8 are deceased, approximately 12 kittens have been eaten by raccoons and possums plus strays show up from time to time).
I feed all of the feral cats and their juveniles everyday. I test them for leukemia. I neuter/spay them. I vaccinate them. I treat most of them for worms and fleas. I take them for emergency care when they are sick and wounded. And I try to find good homes for their kittens.
