Cat Ac­tion Team (CAT) is look­ing to ex­pand its cur­rent net­work of vol­un­teers across the Is­land. The group, aimed to help lessen the num­ber of feral cats in P.E.I., is a vol­un­teer-run reg­is­tered char­ity that was founded in 2001. They of­fer a trap-neuter-re­lease pro­gram to mem­bers of the pub­lic who care for out­door, stray, feral and barn cats on the prov­ince. Since its in­cor­po­ra­tion is has spayed and neutered over 12,500 cats, placed over 100 wooden shel­ters in feral cat colonies, pro­vided food when nec­es­sary and re­sponded to in­nu­mer­able con­cerns re­lated to feral, stray and barn cat com­mu­ni­ties. To reach out to the pub­lic CAT is of­fer­ing two pub­lic in­for­ma­tion ses­sions, one in Septem­ber and one in Oc­to­ber. The group en­cour­ages any­one in­ter­ested in help­ing with fundrais­ing, shel­ter build­ing and more is in­vited to at­tend the ses­sions. CAT works closely with other an­i­mal wel­fare groups on P.E.I. like Keep­ing Cats Homed, the P.E.I. Hu­mane So­ci­ety and SpayAid P.E.I. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from these groups have also been in­vited to at­tend these ses­sions to an­swer any ques­tions. The first in­for­ma­tion cen­tre will be held on Sept. 30 at 2 p.m. at the St. Eleanors Com­mu­nity Cen­tre and the sec­ond will be held at the P.E.I Hu­mane So­ci­ety Con­fer­ence Fa­cil­ity on Oct. 14 at 2 p.m. For more in­for­ma­tion con­tact Carol Ann at cat­ac­tion­team@ ya­hoo.com.
