For the safety of the cats, I deleted their exact location. Contact Alexandra Kelsey or Elizabeth Asher if you can help.

While we watch our new, centrally-located real estate appreciate and while our neighbors are decked out in new yoga pants and pushing $1,000 strollers, it's easy to forget that the gentrification and development are a disaster for the community cats being fed in these location.  See below, if you can help feed a little colony of cats who are likely not even ferals.  They will likely need to be relocated, if possible.

Need a team of volunteers to take this feral colony- address below. If you can start feeding, we can get help for spay/neuter costs thru several programs. Maybe able to help with food from time to time. Pls share this email. It works well if friends get tog and take turns feeding.

Any time after January 8th (once a variance has been permitted on the empty house where these kits live) the whole block is going to be razed in addition to this pretty 1912 house.  My husband saw 3 when he went by yesterday--2 blacks and a tabby.  He knows that people had been feeding them, but these folks have all recently sold to a townhouse developer and left the area.
We don't live close and my health is compromised.  We can't physically or financially help this batch.  Please let as many people as possible know the situation--maybe someone can step up and relocate them.  My husband does not think they are full-out feral (I haven't been to this location so don't know).  He could not tell the status of their left ears.
Thank you so much for all that you may be able to do.
Again, please cross-post.
