Cats!  Cats!  And more Cats!

The Cat Lady of Jaramillo

Written by Kirsten, ARF volunteer


I first met Ilsia and Gabriela at the April Los Animales spay and neuter clinic when it was brought to my attention Ilsia had 39 cats. Yes, 39.


These were not all Ilsia’s cats to begin with. She is very compassionate and people knowing this would drop unwanted or found cats at her property.  


Gabriela is a young adult who persuaded her elderly aunt that she needed to have these cats sterilized because before long she would have even more.  At the April clinic she brought two females.  That was all she could afford to sterilize and transport. 

I visited her home and saw that the cats were well cared for, but realized she needed assistance. 


ARF provided cat food and prepared a plan for sterilizing the cats. With the help of Gabriela and her boyfriend Carlos, 8 cats were brought to the May clinic.  We will continue to bring additional cats to each clinic as finances allow.   Gabriela and Carlos are socializing the kittens and finding them homes.  The older cats are ferals. 

ARF is seeking donations to construct a simple structure to shelter the cats, provide food and sterilization fees.


Now that’s a team effort!  Thanks Kirsten, Gabriela and Carlos for taking on this project.
