Akita is 14 years old and is a fellow animal lover. She just finished spending 5 months in Children's Hospital in Vancouver, with Leukemia. Her mom, Cynthia, slept on a bed in Akita's hospital room for the entire 5 months. Now that Akita is recovering, she has finally been allowed to come home, although her immune system is still very low. Akita's family moved to their current property a couple of years ago and inherited a bunch of unfixed barn/semi-feral cats with the house.

Last year, "Bengali" had a litter of kittens and dumped them at Akita's back door. Akita tried to bottle feed the two kittens that survived, but to no avail. Unfortunately they passed away.

When Akita noticed that "Bengali" was pregnant again, she managed to catch her. Akita left a bowl of food at the back door with the back door open. "Bengali" eventually came into the house to eat the food. At that time, Akita closed the door. After that, it was quite an adventure for "Bengali" as she ran around the house, while Akita tried to herd her into the spare room. Needless to say, Akita eventually succeeded.

"Bengali" had her 6 kittens on June 11 and Akita is doing a wonderful job taking care of them. The kittens are now almost ready for adoption. They will be spayed, neutered, dewormed, and given their first booster shot before going to their new homes.

Akita's next goal is to continue with the Trap/Neuter and Release of all of the semi-feral cats in her country neighborhood. She has spoken with most of her neighbors and they are agreeable to help control the growing cat population in their area. Because they live in the country side, many cats/kittens are dropped off in their area on a regular basis.

Instead of all of these cats reproducing, Akita, wants to catch them, spay or neuter them, give them any medical attention that they need, and then let them go again - the Trap/Neuter/Release program. If there are any pregnant moms around, Akita also plans on taking them into her home so they can have a safe and healthy environment to have their kittens in.

Akita and her family don't have the money to do this all on their own, so we have set up a Fundraiser for them. The Trap Neuter Release program is truly a community effort, so any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
