After seeing yesterday's post about the cat hat craze that's sweeping the nation, Marilyn sent me a note about her very own line of feline-inspired head apparel, fashioned to help support feral cats.
Her shop, Catnip Hill, offers handmade fleece caps in a variety of colors, and just like kittens, you never know what you're going to get! Also, just like many feral cats around the country, the hats have one ear tipped to indicate that they're part of a Trap Neuter Return program.
For those who don't know, Trap Neuter Return (TNR) volunteers trap feral cats, have them spayed or neutered, and then return them back to their colonies, where they can continue to live without the threat of reproducing. The kitties also have one ear snipped in a painless procedure while they are still under anesthesia, so that once they're returned to the wild, caretakers know they've already been tended to.
