Attack of the Alien Invaders, National Geographic Magazine: Care Given To Homeless Kittens

Cats lie on white sheets sleeping after operations they had in the clinic.

After surgery, cats are lined up in beds until they wake up from anesthesia under the watchful eye of workers.  Homeless felines find compassion at Caring for Cats, an all volunteer, no-kill shelter and foster network for cats and kittens in Florida.

Feral cats are trapped, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, tested for feline AIDS and leukemia. Their left ear is clipped to show they’ve been processed. They are adopted or released back into the wild and fed by volunteers.
