writing this on behalf of Diane DiGravio, President of Habitat
for Cats, a Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) organization that saves the
lives of feral/outdoor cats. She was recently approached to
see if she could help a population of about 50 cats located in
Ontario - called the Colony W. Here is Habitat's website
How to Help:
1) Diane is looking for barns (with associated caretakers) to place these outdoor cats. They are neutered, vetted, the caretakers get cages and supplies , etc. They have been well cared for and loved.
2) Follow Habitat for Cats on Facebook and Share her story and updates to your friends - I would do it weekly. Ask your friends to share and reshare.
3) If you can help, Diane can be reached at cell 585-615-2980 or Diane.firstname.lastname@example.org
Again, Diane needs Barns to relocated this and other groups of cats. The ideal is horse barn, where cats have proven to be great pals for the horses - calming them and being great room mates.

To let live or allow to die? That was the decision I was faced with
six weeks ago when I received a call from our local shelter.
The shelter contacted me following a phone call that they had
received with the request to euthanize 50 cats living in an
outdoor setting. I commend the shelter manager, who reached
out to me knowing that I have been a long time rescuer of
feral cats, to ask me to check out the situation, and to offer
my suggestions on this overpopulated cat colony. Since the
colony resided in my neck of the woods-I arranged for a visit
to the site where these cats were located to get an idea of
the situation. When I get called upon to "check out"
situations such as this one...most are a case of true neglect.
What I walked into on that day 6 weeks ago...was something
that I will never forget. I approached a 65 acre/lake front
parcel with a "For Sale Sign/Sale Pending" out by the road. I
turned down their private, gravel road and drove back in.
While driving back to the home, I passed a rolling river,
beautiful landscaping, a small herd of deer, rabbits, and so
much more. Upon reaching the home, I was greeted by two of the
nicest people I have ever met. Interestingly, I never saw a
single cat on my drive back to the residence or during my meet
and greet at the front of the house. I could tell by their
expressions and immediate hospitality that these folks were
glad to see me. As they began to share their story of the
"feline crew" that lived there...it was ever so apparent that
these folks were desperate! So here is the story of "Colony
