My sister does that in California. It certainly helps keep the feral-cat population down a tad...
Washoe County has an amazing trap-neuter-return program, too. For free. What many people don't realize is that removing the feral cats will just result in more coming in. If the feral colony is spayed/neutered and someone is feeding them regularly, they will (1) not reproduce and (2) keep other unspayed/unneutered feral cats out. What they do here is cut a tip off one of the cat's ears, and then all the animal control people know that it is a TNR cat.

And elisemarie, you are doing the right thing. It just isn't easy on us when our furbabies have surgery.

I've slept on it, thought about it, and I still feel it would be more feasible to have A'chi spayed before I have Bubba Steve neutered.

Both will be 'fixed'. I just feel spaying A'chi will take care of two concerns at the same time. I won't have to worry about A'chi becoming pregnant, and I will avoid the 'mess' of having a Pug in heat. Remember ... A'chi is the first female canine I have ever brought into my home. I honestly do not relish the idea of cleaning up after her wherever she may choose to roam around the house.

So ... my thinking is to take care of A'chi before Bubba Steve. Chances are - if I can swing it - cross fingers I will be able to stay home with A'chi for a couple of days while I heal up from my dental procedures. My boss has already been informed of my dental stuff (he's seen my face swell up like a blowfish - twice !), and HE recommends I give my mouth time to completely heal before returning to work with my clients. (he likes me good vibes ) A'chi and I can keep an eye on each other while Bubba Steve stands watch Pug over both of us.

a-woo-woo-woo-woo !
