Feral colony needs new home (NoCal)
Posting for a friend
Here's the background: A friend and her husband own a small vineyard near Middletown, CA (just north of Calistoga). There is a strip-mall near her behind which there are nine ear-tipped cats that she's been feeding, but she doesn't know where they came from. She set up a feeding station and left out bowls, and has been feeding them whenever she can. The cats now trust her (but not her husband), and one of them is quite friendly. She doesn't think they are true ferals, but may have been pets and one point.
The problem is now some people have started disturbing the feeding area. She went to feed one day, and found all the bowls gone and a disgusting mattress was dumped there. She replaced the bowls and had the mattress removed. Then just last week, someone had urinated in all the new bowls. Whats wrong with people????
The 2nd problem is she and her husband are planning to sell the vineyard, and she really wants to find a better place for the cats before then. She won't be able to relocate them to where they're moving to, and her husband won't let her adopt any of them.
Does anyone know of any rescue groups around that area, or any suggestions on how to find a new foster / home / rescue group and relocate the cats?
