TNR Certification, Community Cat Webinars, Coming Right Up


Do you want to help cats in your neighborhood? To be ready if someone’s cat escapes, or if a new cat shows up? 

TNR is a lot more than trapping, neutering and vaccinating, then returning a cat to its caretaker. Returning a cat to its caretaker is also part of “return-to-field” practice, returning a friendly cat to its caretaker, a cat who is physically and emotionally thriving even if living outdoors rather than surrendering it to a shelter, for instance, because it’s better for a cat to continue to thrive than be stressed or even in danger of euthanasia in a shelter.

The three webinars coming up include TNR information and certification and more. I’ve done the TNR workshop and am certified, and also gathered information on return-to-field practices with these webinars.

Read other Press Releases

I subscribe to a variety of reading lists to constantly further my knowledge of health and welfare for cats and other pets, domestic animals and wildlife. I occasionally publish press releases I think my readers will appreciate, and I share them by choice with no compensation. When I am occasionally compensated for a post I clearly note that is a “sponsored post”.

Each month features one of my commissioned portraits of a feline or felines and their rescue story along with a kitty quote on the left page, and on the right page the month name with enough lines for all possible dates, with standard holidays and animal-themed observances and events. Great Rescues also includes a mini cat-care book illustrated with my drawings including information on finding strays or orphaned kittens, adopting for the first time or caring for a geriatric cat, a list of household toxins and toxic plants, or helping stray and feral cats and beginning with TNR.

Each book includes also 10 sheets of my “22 Cats” decorative notepaper with a collage of all the portraits in black and white so you can make your own notes or write special notes to friends.

The portraits in this book, collected as a series, won both a Certificate of Excellence and a Muse Medallion in the 2011 Cat Writers’ Association Annual Communication Contest, as well as the 22 Cats Notepaper mentioned below.
