PetSmart Patsy is the lone survivor of a1653 Millerville Rd. litter left to die. Her first rescuer decided she didnt want the Baton Rouge sweet little kitten and was going to have her euthanized. FAWS stepped in and rescued her a second time. Patsy has already gone through 3 of her 9 lives and is now waiting patiently for a hero to step forward and give her the loving permanent home she deserves. Born around 5/20/12, Patsy is up-to-date with vaccinations . Her adoption fee is $40 which includes spaying. To rescue Patsy from a life of loneliness, call today 225-252-5138 or email FAWS.

Special thanks to Amy for not only spending her entire Sunday with this event, but also herSaturday night was spent trapping cats at remote locations. Julie adeptly handled the 6:00 a.m.signing in desk. Gail and family hauled cats early Sunday and returned them late Sunday night allover the parish, and then some. Thanks to Candice for setting traps and monitoring them.Our efforts resulted in 36 cats being spayed/neutered/4-in-1 vaccinated/and rabies vaccinated.We are getting close to finishing up the TNR (Trap, Neuter, Release) of the 60-cat clan that islocated 3 miles north of Clinton. We spayed/neutered 6 of that cat clan this spay day. By our bestestimates, we still have about 10 unaltered cats left there. We have adopted out 13 of those 60cats and have 4 in foster care. This spay day we started with another large cat clan. That grouphas about 30 cats. We trapped 11 for this spay day.We are especially grateful to LSU Vet School for this excellent service and to Cat Haven fororganizing it all. A total of 120 cats were spayed/neutered Sunday. They gave FAWSapproximately 1/3 of their slots. Without this event, East Feliciana would have no cat program. TO CONTACT FAWS: Feliciana Animal Welfare Society P.O.
