"TEN LIVES: A Feral Cat Odyssey" documentary, Free at the Euclid Public Library

On Wednesday, August 20, 2014, Euclid Beach Feral Cat Project and Waterloo Alley Cat Project have teamed-up to present the new documentary “TEN LIVES: A Feral Cat Odyssey” at the Euclid Public Library, 631 East 222nd Street, Euclid, OH. The movie, supported by Friends of Animals (FoA), the Summerlee Foundation and ASPCA, reveals the lives of feral cats and the growing number of people and organizations working to not only humanely make their lives better, but reduce their numbers through the proven method known as trap, neuter and return TNR.  A question and answer session will follow after the movie. This workshop is FREE to the public. Times for the event are 5:45 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. and is FREE. Representatives from the Cleveland Animal Protective League and Petfix of NE Ohio will also be present.


The Euclid Beach Feral Cat Project and The Waterloo Alley Cat Project are two North Collinwood neighborhood volunteer organizations in Cleveland that have implemented the trap-neuter/spay-return method to reduce the number of homeless cats and kittens. After five years, the two Projects combined have spayed and neutered over a thousand cats and have garnered the support of municipal officials, residents and local businesses. Debbie Gulyas, business owner and Waterloo Alley Cat Project volunteer remarked, “Our two organizations have saved the lives of many cats and, now through teamwork, our mission is to improve and protect the lives of even more cats as well as the quality of life in our neighborhood by sharing our knowledge with people who would also like to help their community as well as the cats."

In neighborhoods throughout the U.S., trap-neuter/spay-return programs (TNR) have proven to be effective in humanely managing feral and stray cats while at the same time reducing their population. With TNR the cats are trapped, spayed or neutered, vaccinated for rabies, left ear-tipped (the universal sign that a cat is fixed) and, if feral, returned to their original territory. A trained caretaker then provides food and shelter, and watches for newcomers.

    What an amazing group of people were there, walking the walk. Acting on the needs of feral cats and other animals that need human love and care. I was so impressed by their personal commitment and dedication to their love for animals.

    Between the 3 groups of the Euclid Beach Feral Cat Project, Waterloo Alley Cat Project and APL, there were 54 fans, believers and followers who attended the documentary and presentation. It was exceptional and it was fantastic to meet the people who started their projects and remain very committed, dedicated and devoted especially to the cats and kittens.
