The Story

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.

Ways that you can help:  

  • Your donations will go a long way to curb the cat overpopulation problem in Kerr County. Thank you so very much for your financial support.
  • Please consider giving one of these cats a forever home.
  • Come on out to the Kerrville Fall Festival to meet the cats and prepare to fall in love.
  • Forward this to Kerrverts and cat lovers on your email and Facebook lists far and wide.

Yay to the Spay has reached its goal!! Yay to the generous and caring donors for making this happen!
We begin the "cleanup" process next week, using a drop trap for those wiley mama kitties who wouldn't go in the regular traps. It may take several trips, but now that the veterinarians and trapping volunteers are back from vacation, we will get it done.
Check our gallery below for new pics of Bubba and his Papa. Also a new pic from the little Siamese adopted by a Kerrvert from Canyon Lake.

A huge shout out to all of our donors, Kerrverts, and friends. We are nearly at our goal. The QVR cats will all be spayed or neutered, flea-treated, and vaccinated against rabies thanks to your generosity. Two of the kittens were adopted as well as our rock star cat, Bubba. Bubba left QVR the day after the festival with his new person, Adrian. This adoption was meant to be since this music loving cat now resides happily in Austin. Adrian promises a picture soon.

One more week until "Little Folk". I hope to meet some of our amazing donors next weekend. Please come by our booth (next to "Kamp Pillows") and say hello. We are in need of foster homes for some of the kittens who are still very shy, and, of course, forever homes for all of them. Bubba, our rock star cat, will be available to greet you as well. He will be interviewing candidates who are interested in fostering or adopting a QVR kitten.
