Cat Colony Questionnaire - 21 or more cats
The Fix Is In will help property owners who provide shelter, food, water and ongoing monitoring to a colony of cats, whether they are friendly or feral, or a mixture of the two. Our team will come to the property on a selected date and alter all of the cats. Included with surgery are a rabies vaccination, ear cleaning, and an application of Selamectin, a topical parasite treatment. Minimal wound care and other health related treatments may also be provided. All cats must receive an ear tip, no exceptions; this will assist in monitoring the colony for new cats who will need to be captured and sterilized. The property owner must be willing to continue providing food, water and shelter to the cats, as well as the monitoring for serious health concerns and new arrivals. The new arrival monitoring is critical to prevent the reproductive cycle from beginning again. The colony size is expected to decline as the cats age and die over time.

Cat Information
Total estimated number of cats on the property *
How many of this estimated number are friendly (anyone can pet and hold the cat safely)? *
How many of this estimated number are semi-feral (can sometimes pet)? *
How many of this estimated number are feral (wild)? *
Describe the general health of the cats, overall, including any notes about special cases (for example: good weight, underweight, sneezing/runny eyes, injuries or wounds, fleas, etc.) *
Are there kittens on your property smaller 1.5 pounds? If so, approximately how many? *
We are able to do surgery on a healthy kitten weighing 1.5 pounds. Please include notes on nursing mothers with litters.
If we are able to arrange for it, are you interested in having any young kittens removed from your property and placed with a humane society or rescue group for adoption? *
Property Information
Where are the cats fed? *
(Specify building(s) where food is made available)
Where do the cats shelter? *
(Specify building(s) or space where cats sleep or go during bad weather)
Please describe the space on your property where the cats (in traps) can be kept inside the night before and the night after surgery? Is the indoor temperature appropriate for the season (cool enough in summer, warm enough in spring/fall)? The building may be a garage, shed or barn. *
It is best to set traps up on 2x4 boards so urine/fecal matter will fall through. Are you able to provide such a set up? *
Do you have a clean indoor space for our staff to set up a work station to wash and repack surgical instruments? *
This would include plugging in two pieces of equipment. An example of an area that works well is a cleared off kitchen counter next to a sink and a cleared off kitchen table. This is a clean process as surgical instruments are immediately placed in a water bath after surgery, removing any blood or tissue before the instruments are washed. Please describe what you would have available for us to use.
Will you or anyone else be available to help transfer cats on and off the mobile during the day and with instrument processing? *
Logistics
How much you will be able to contribute toward this project? *
The Fix Is In maintains a fund to help provide this service. The fund relies heavily on donations. The cost per cat for this service is $40. Any contribution toward the services provided to you will help us to continue offering this service.
Do you have access to any live traps or carriers? If so, how many of each? *
Each cat must be in its own live trap or carrier for the surgery day. Because the goal is to sterilize all of the cats on your property, it is important to follow all instructions for rounding up the cats. The Fix Is In has live traps available for use and will provide guidance and assistance as we are able. It is expected that ALL cats be in traps/carriers when the mobile arrives at 8:00 am (or other designated time).
Do you have access to a truck/trailer to transport live traps? *
Traps measure 26x9x9-inches.
Will you be able to make arrangements to pick up and return the traps as needed, or arrange to meet another person to transfer traps? *
Traps are typically located in Rhinelander, but may be temporarily stored at a previously visited property.
Are you able to clean all of the borrowed traps after use? *
You will be expected to clean all of the borrowed traps after use. This can be done with a power washer, or at a self-service car wash, or with a large tote/bin of soapy water, a brush and hose. After cleaning, traps should be sprayed with a 10% bleach solution, allowed to set for 10 minutes, and then rinsed off.
Do you have experience/knowledge of trapping cats? *
If so, please explain.
