I’m in the process of TNR’ing (trap, neuter, return) a feral cat colony at a pier in Brooklyn. One of the cats, (I call him) Morris, is NOT feral. He was obviously dumped by some heartless human. The past few months, since I’ve met him and started feeding him, I watched as looked progressively more depressed and unwell, with a flea infestation (which I treated with Revolution) and chronic eye infections, (which I tried to treat, whenever he would allow me to).
It was clear this cat needed a home. I was overjoyed when one of my co-workers expressed an interest in adopting him. Last Friday, I picked him up, and we tried – unsuccessfully – to get him into a cat carrier.
The plan was that the co-worker (who has another cat at home) would call me on the weekend to help me trap him and bring him to the vet. He never called and his cell phone has been disconnected.
I trapped and brought him to my vet, had him examined and neutered, and tested for feline leukemia and AIDS. Sadly, he is FIV+, so I must keep him separated from my 10 cats, until I get him a home.
Right now, he is in my basement. He has soft blankets to sleep on, a clean litter box, and plenty of fresh food and water. He’s on Zithromax and L-Lysine, and I’m treating his eyes with antibiotic ointment. I go down there as much as possible to give him the affection he craves and loves.
While this is not ideal, it’s far better, safer, and more comfortable for him, than being down by the pier, amongst garbage, barbed wire, broken glass, and cruel teenagers who torment the animals and do terrible things to them (like catching them to use as bait for dogfighting or “trunking” – putting a small animal in a trunk with two fighting dogs to see who comes out the “winner.”).
I am in the process of looking for a very compassionate human to adopt him.
He can only be in a home with other FIV+ cats or no cats.
Please pass the word around.
Thanks so much,

The Venus Project proposes an alternative vision of what the future can be if we apply what we already know in order to achieve a sustainable new world civilization. It calls for a straightforward redesign of our culture in which the age-old inadequacies of war, poverty, hunger, debt and unnecessary human suffering are viewed not only as avoidable but as totally unacceptable. Anything less will result in a continuation of the same catalog of problems inherent in today’s world.
