The Rosemere citizen contacts us. We then ask him to make sure the cat does not belong to one of the neighbor’s.
After accepting the contract according to our method of operation (view ”what we do not do”) we counsel the citizen on our method and lend him the necessary material to capture the feline.
The cost of the sterilisation is totally assumed by CatChat.
The captured cat will be transported by one of our volunteers to our premises before the operation.
Before the operation, the cat will be examined by the veterinarian and if the cat should require care it will be given to insure its well-being. Following this the animal will be sterilized. To help distinguish a sterilized animal from another, a small incision in the ear will be made (see picture below).
After the operation, CatChat volunteers will follow up on its convalescence to make sure all is well.
When the cat is ready, it will be released where it was originally found.
What we do not do...
We are not a refuge.
We do not work in emergencies (we are volunteers).
We do not take cats from other municipalities ( see tab of our partners)
We do not catch the cats. Every sterilized cat will be released where he was found to avoid the effect of void.
