Ferals #3 and #4

Last week was a busy week.  I caught one cat on Tuesday night and took what turned out to be a "her" to get spayed.  This time I had caught a black kitty. 

This one was really subdued compared to the others. 

The next one I caught was on Thursday night.  When I took it to the SPCA the next day, it was full of ferals!  They were overloaded that day and I was turned away with a feral cat in my backseat.  I really didn't want to release it without having it fixed because odds are that I wouldn't be able to catch it again.  I called a few local vets to see if they worked with ferals and I found one that is around the corner from my house.  Luckily they had an opening and they offer a discounted rate for spaying/neutering ferals.  I dropped this one off, and it was actually a boy!

It's so hard to tell them apart.  There are SO many black cats at the school.  The vet notched his ear and I tried to get a picture up close: 

You can see the little V taken off the right ear so that people can tell this one's been fixed already.  When this one was done recovering, I took a quick video of me releasing it.  I think releasing them is my favorite part because they always run away and seem happy to get back to their home.
