A typical story is told by Teri Palmer, Registration Clerk at Loyalton Medical Clinic, who’s adopted two little kittens and their Mama about 2-1/2 months ago. Teri states, “I noticed babies popping their heads out of the vent coming into the clinic. I have been feeding them since. They eat very healthy and are spoiled with leftover gravies, soups, and cheese.”
In talking with Linda Satchwell, Teri told of patients who wanted to catch them, sitting by the vent with a cage and a bag of food.
One responsible patient from Portola has contacted a friend of hers who works closely with vets in capturing stray cats, getting them their shots and returning them to their home.
It is hoped they were successful in trapping the three, getting them their shots, neutering them and returning them.

Community Cats Program
Trap-Neuter-Return-Monitor (TNRM) Guidelines
Surgery days are Wednesdays and Sundays only. All cats must be dropped off between 7:00am to 8:30am—no exceptions. These days are subject to change. Please call 775-856-2000 ext. 333 for any changes.
Due to the overwhelming demand for this program, participants are limited to two cats per day. Special circumstances may arise but please call for approval.
Cats must be at least 3 lbs or 3.5 months of age.
All cats are to arrive in humane traps and traps must be completely covered. No boxes, carriers, Rubbermaid containers or alternative carrying devices will be accepted.
All cats will be altered, provided FVRCP and Rabies vaccinations (over 3 months of age), ear tipped and given a long acting antibiotic injection.
Have a heart. It’s the responsible thing to do.
