Certified Schoolyard Community Cat Habitat Project
Turn your schoolyard into a haven for community cats! The project is to help reconnect today's children to their neighborhood ecology and introduce them to their domesticated neighbor, the feral cat. Kitty Karma Refuge assists schools in developing outdoor shelters and feeding stations for their neighborhood cats. KKR will certify the schoolyard "Community Cat Habitat Project", where educators and students learn about TNRM, as well as how to protect and care for outdoor colony cats in their location.
From Alley Cat Allies:
"In the thousands of years that cats have lived alongside people, indoor-only cats have only become common in the last 50 or 60 years—a negligible amount of time on an evolutionary scale.
Throughout human history, cats have always lived and thrived outside. It is only recently that we have begun to introduce reproduction control like spaying and neutering to bring them indoors. And also, bring the outdoors to them: using canned food and litter boxes to satisfy biological needs developed over thousands of years of living outdoors.
Although human civilization and domestic cats co-evolved side by side, the feral cat population was not created by humans. (But we humans don't need to add to the feral cat population by not getting our cats spayed or neutered.) Cats have lived outdoors for a long time—they are not new to the environment and they didn’t simply originate from lost pets or negligent pet owners. Instead, cats have a place in the natural landscape."
Kitty Counter App
KKR is developing a Smart phone app that allows it's users to input the number of outdoor cats in their neighborhood. Currently, the only tools that animal control and shelters have at their disposal is to rely on reports from neighborhood complaints.
Hungry Kitty Food Bank
Far from having a feediing ban, Elk Grove's Animal Control helps colony caretakers feed feral cat colonies, rather than punish good samaritans who look after the outdoor cats. KKR is looking to create a Feral Food Pantry for those colony caretakers in financial need who have registred their colonies with us. Please check back often as this is one project we need to see happen right away.
