This spring, at the Kerrville Folk Festival, a handsome, young and affectionate black cat with a white star on his chest took shelter from the Memorial Day thunderstorm with me in my craft booth at the Kennedy Theater. After spending 3 weekends with "Bubba" around the craft village, we discovered that he wasn't neutered, and that there were several other cats on the ranch that needed fixing. And shortly after the festival ended several more kittens were illegally dumped off at Quiet Valley Ranch. This is an ongoing problem in rural areas of Kerr County.
I have connected with a superstar volunteer who works with BigFixCats.com, and Freeman-Fritts, a local Kerrville veterinary clinic, to get the ranch cats spayed & neutered and rabies vaccinated at a discounted price. I have paid for Bubba, a Bubba look-alike, and a Siamese beauty to have their vet appointments the beginning of July. At the present time there are approximately 20 more cats on the festival grounds all needing their visit to the clinic, and we need help paying for all of them.
Once the cats are fixed we will work to find them forever homes.
