It rained halfway through our trapping so we only managed to trap 4 cats for TNR. Apart from weather challenges, we had to deal with 1 very skittish cat, and spotting the non-neutered ones from those with tipped-ears. We covered a total of 4 out of 5 blocks targeted for TNR before the rain came.

Some of the kitties could be handled, and easily allowed us to place them into carriers. Some had to be humanely trapped.

Here are the mug shots of the 4 cats we neutered.
The good thing is this project would make this group of cats almost wholly neutered and thus lessen the chances of them being culled due to complaints. There are probably 1 or 2 skittish cats that remain, and 2 of the cats we initially thought of the 8 we wanted to neuter, were already neutered with tipped ears.
Here are some pics of the already neutered cats. The residents here are mostly tolerant towards having cats as part of the community.

So we hope we have made a difference to the Haig Road residents, not just the cats themselves. Yay for change!
