Long Island, NY: GOOD NEWS! RESCUED! RE: Semi-Feral(?) Cat Needs to be moved ASAP Before Employer Takes Matter into Own Hands


GOOD NEWS! KITTY IS SAFE! ALL VETTED NOW (spayed, tested & has no conditions or issues)! GOING TO FOSTER 11/10! Kudos to all the superhero, generous, talented, energetic rescue participants who rapidly took action despite horrible weather conditions and Superstorm's aftermath!!!
On a side note, I do verily hope that if strays adopt that secure gated employer in future, and said employer wishes them to be gone, they will advise ahead of next hurricane, floods, winds, cold, snow, locusts and pestilence ;-)
EXCERPT FROM WHAT THE TRAPPER WROTE:

Got to Hauppague around 6:45am.  Roads were very icy but we went slow and steady. Met Pat in back parking lot.  Lots of snow where kitty was and we were concerned she would not show, but she heard Pat's voice and was hungry and cold and came right out through the bushes.  She was behind a fence that we had no access to, so I set up trap near an opening with a protected cover on it.  She went in trap right away but did not trigger b/c food was on the trigger and so the second time (she was hungry thank goodness) I put the food beyond the trigger and she went in right away  ---  and success!  We were on the road to the vet by 7:15am.   We had to wait about 45 minutes for vet to open but by then she was toasty warm and very friendly, rubbing us through the trap openings. She is a sweetheart!
Just scared is all.

Bcc list, please cross post this Hurricane Survivor!  Need to TNR, she’s at risk of being picked up by the employer and heading to the pound.  Please contact me if you can help.  All costs will be picked up by No Paws Left Behind. 
She survived the hurricane but unfortunately no one has contacted me about fostering her or wanting to adopt her.  My company is doing another sweep of the property here and i'm fearful they will find her and get rid of her.  Have you hard anything positive about moving her from here?? Winter is coming and if they don't find her she'll have no shelter and it's getting difficult to locate new hiding spots for her food. what should i do. Can you assist further> thank you I'm in suffolk county long island

BCC list, please cross post.  A good Samaritan has been feeding this beautiful girl at her place of employment for three years now.  The employer wants it stopped so I need a rescuer to help out before she is pound bound.  She lets the good Sam pick her up so maybe a trap won't be necessary but she needs to be moved ASAP.  No Paws Left Behind will pay for the spay costs and vetting.  Please contact me if you can help.
