Catnip Nation Has A New Trailer! And Other News

Hello, and Happy Monday! I've got some exciting news to tell you all! If you're a regular reader of our blog you know that Catnip Nation has been giving updates on their project right here on our blog. If you're not familiar with Catnip Nation, I'll tell you a little about it. Catnip Nation, a full-length documentary that looks deep into the soul of a handful of unsung and unseen heroes who feed and care for feral cats. Catnip Nation is not only a collection of stories, but the people behind it are working hard to make TNR legal everywhere. 

Today I'm excited to bring you their new trailer! 




Isn't it great? They have an updated website with new videos. Here's a little sneak peek at one: 



This is Ken Salerno, a devoted cat man, who exposed his government for giving up on a successful Trap Neuter Return (TNR) program on the New Jersey Shore, and singlehandedly relocated more than 60 boardwalk cats to a farm sanctuary. The cat world needs more people like Ken! 

You can see more videos from Catnip Nation here. 

The project is now moving from the filming to the editing phase. If you'd like to make a donation to help the film along, visit their website and click on the Donate Now button. For a $50 donation to help complete funding for the production, you'll receive the official Catnip Nation t-shirt. 



We can't wait to see the full length version of this film! Catnip Nation is shedding light on the issues that community cats endure and the struggles the people who care for them face.  We hope this film makes a huge impact on this subject.

  7. Like Annie Bear, I hope the film reaches a lot of people and that they open their eyes to the plight of the feral cats everywhere! and the hard hard loving work the people who help them, accomplish. They are being stewards of the helpless just as we are told to be.

  8. Each of these posts excite me more than the last! More people need to learn about TNR and the false beliefs some people hold in reference to the practice.

  9. I wasn't familiar with Catnip Nation but thanks so much for sharing. I've been involved with TNR and the abuse I got from neighbours was astonishing. Even when I explained what I was doing, why, the benefits to everyone they didn't care. I had to sneak around at night it was ridiculous. I'm so thrilled this documentary is calling attention to so much needless suffering, and to the incredible men and women who give so much of themselves to help those who cannot help themselves. TNR should absolutely be made legal and mandatory everywhere, the only thing it will do is end suffering.

  11. I've heard of TNR - although I didn't know about the acronym or that it's not legal in some places. I'm glad there's people working to fix that!

  16. I'm not far from Seaside! We do have a lot of boardwalks and feral cats. At our beach club in Sea Bright there is a female that had a little of kittens every year. Every summer, the owners of the club would put the kittens up for adoption. No kittens for the last few years so hopefully she was spayed!

  18. What a great project! I love that it is highlighting what amazing things some people do to help animals.

  19. That trailer is compelling! Nicely done. I’m looking forward to seeing the documentary and sharing. What really struck me was how several of the cat rescuers looked like retired people. Given the research about the positive impact of relationships between pets and the elderly, why is any government getting all ruffled up about retired folks dedicating their free time to helping these cats? Definitely looking froward to this documentary so I can learn more.

  20. Ken really is an amazing person! I can't believe they've had so much opposition to helping these poor feral cats in New Jersey! It's so awful. I look forward to seeing this documentary.

  21. What a trailer! I cannot wait to see the full film. As a mom to an adopted neighborhood feral, I don't understand why these kind, loving folks are getting so much opposition for helping cats in need? Looking forward to the film's release.

  22. I'm amazed at what some people can do! I've always been strong and a "move forward" type of person in my job, but I've never reached out into the community to try and make a difference.

  23. What a great cause! There are a few documentaries in the dog world that are trying to raise money, similar to what looks like Catnip Nation is trying to do. I know the one started a Facebook page dedicated to updates on the documentary complete with a donate button. Perhaps this would work for Catnip Nation?

  24. What an awesome trailer! I can’t wait to see the film and to learn more about the project! I am always worried about our feral cat populations and I am thankful for those who are so dedicated to assisting through TNR. Thank you for helping to spread the word.
