What does your money do?
Veterinary costs take up the vast majority of the money that we collect in donations. The two vets we use in Javea La Nao and Animalets keep the cost of the operations and blood tests as low as possible, it nevertheless costs a great deal of money to treat the number of cats we deal with.
Once a cat has been caught in one of our automatic traps, it is transferred from this to a cage called a “restrainer” cage. This is not nearly as bad as it sounds but enables the vet to immobilise the cat so that a sedative injection can be given.
At no time during the trapping and transferring is the cat actually handled as they obviously are very frightened at this stage and can, and do, go a bit wild! Once the cat has been anaesthetised, it is spayed (female) or castrated (male). Castrating a male cat does not involve invasive surgery, unlike a spaying operation on a female. The female cat will be left with a wound on her abdomen just a few centimetres long and with stitches that will dissolve without any other veterinary intervention.
After the operation, the cat is returned to a cage and put in a quiet place to recover. If possible, the cats are kept in a warm, quiet place overnight before being returned to where they were caught. Whenever we can, depending on volunteers, female cats are kept con
