Weekly hospital update–week of April 8

The hospital received 98 animals last week, bringing the total for this year to 704.

Twenty-one of the patients last week were caught and injured by cats. Even though there are many other hazards for wildlife in our neighborhoods, free-roaming house cats cause a high percentage of the damage. Keep cats indoors as much as possible. For information on how to make an outdoor cat a happy indoor cat, check the American Bird Conservancy’s website: http://www.abcbirds.org/abcprograms/policy/cats/index.html.
