Please Help Me Save & Move These Stray Cats to Their New Home in Cavite

Update posted by Maria Rosario Pascual On Dec 02, 2017

GOOD NEWS! I went to our ancestral home in Cavite to check the garage. To those who have qualms about the size of the garage, you can see it now from the pic below. This garage can actually fit 3 cars, so it's pretty spacious for 10-15 cats.

Now, it turns out that the garage previously had gates which our male helper had stored in the storehouse. Because the gates are in good condition, I had them reinstalled.

The next step will be to install either chicken wire mesh or, preferably steel matting, to prevent the cats from escaping. There's also a small part beneath the roof in front of the garage that also needs to be blocked with wire/matting. The people who reinstalled the gates will provide me with a quotation for the steel matting, although I have already given them a partial payment of Philippine pesos 3,000 (Around $60) for the labor of reinstalling the gate, including the initial payment for the steel matting.

The steel matting that I would like to have installed in the garage is similar to the one in the pic below from our family crypt. But I will still look for a cheaper option that is durable and escape proof.

The MAIN issue that I have with our garage though is that my aunt is keeping her parade float inside. It's the one covered by the striped green and white tarp in the pic. According to our helper, it's actually busted and it will take a lot of money to repair. I still need to convince her to either move or sell the float since she is no longer using it in parades to begin with. I also need to ask my Dad to remove some of his junk, but I don't think it will be too big an issue since the cats love climbing all over his junk to begin with. I immediately pounded on some wire containers (right side of the pic) that would be perfect to convert into cages for the cats to sleep in at night, but to my dismay, these wire containers are being used by my cousins to hold their Christmas decorations. Since this is the case, these containers will also need to be removed if they don't want the decorations destroyed by the cats.

Because of this POSITIVE DEVELOPMENT, I've REDUCED my target to $1,000. At present, the two most expensive issues are...

1) Moving the cats (still at P10,000-15,000)

2) Purchase of carriers and pet cages = This is a problem because no mover wants to move the cats if they are not safely caged during the long drive.
