Starving Cats Need Urgent TNR

Urgent help needed with barn homes and donations!!! We unexpectedly trapped 11 (yes 11!) cats tonight.  We believe we have a total of 20 in need of TNR (relocation for some).  We were trapping in 2 locations - one a mom and babies suddenly showed up at what we thought was our sterile colony, other we were helping an elderly couple and returned tonight to find starving cats and kittens and dirty empty bowls. It was something I've not experienced before - seeing these cats that were used to daily meals so desperate for food, gulping it whole. I've been trapping a long time, and I've never fed as I was trapping but I didn't have to heart not to fill their tummies a little first. We trapped every cat we could because it was a heartbreaking scene. I didn't even know the final head count until we finished and counted carriers. We left some cats, but we will return to feed, of course, until we get them all.  We have at least one injured cat left to trap as well. Please, if you can help, we desperately need to relocate at least 6 of the cats from today (about 4 months old), if not all, to a safe barn home because clearly they aren't being fed or cared for. We need donations for TNR surgery ($55 per cat, $20 for dewormer and revolution) and donations of cat food (wet, any brand) and yesterday's news litter. Our wish list can be found at Donations can be picked up in our area or dropped off (message us please or email [email redacted]). If you have a safe reolcation placement, please email us!  Please share share share and thank you for any support you can provide!
