Nikki Martinez, Trapper, Foster Mom, and Feline Welfare Activist
Nikki Martinez was always a dog person. That all changed one day when a kitten ran in front of her car on her way to a post-surgical doctor appointment. Feeling down and overly focused on herself after her surgery, Nikki poured her heart and soul into nursing that sickly kitten back to health, and eventually found it a new home. In the process, Nikki herself began to healâ€”and she found herself hooked on helping cats. Today, Nikki fosters kittens, serves on the board of directors for a Las Vegas TNR organization called C5, traps community cat colonies with C5, manages a popular kitten Instagram page, and runs a side business called Fostering a Purpose. She specializes in caring for critical care and neonatal kittens, and has fostered hundreds of kittens over the years. It took her a while to see the connection between the kittens she was fostering and TNR, but once she did, she devoted even more of her energy to TNR. As she put it, â€œIâ€™d picture a bucket thatâ€™s overflowing with water, maybe it has a hole in it and the waterâ€™s gushing out. You can either mop up the water, or you can put a plug in the holeâ€”and TNR really puts the plug in the hole and stops these cats from breeding on the street, which ultimately stops kittens from suffering.â€ In this interview, Nikki and Stacy talk trappingâ€”strategy, trap and bait preferences, how to handle injured feral cats, whether there has ever been a cat Nikki couldnâ€™t trapâ€”and even using plumbing â€œsnakeâ€ cameras to assist with trapping. Nikki loves working as a volunteer trapper for C5. â€œItâ€™s such a satisfying feeling to know that these colonies of cats wonâ€™t be breeding anymore,â€ she tells Stacy. Nikki also has an Instagram account for her foster kittens as a way to share knowledge and information about cats and cat overpopulation with folks who canâ€™t help but click on her cute kitten pictures. The page has blown up and Nikki sees it as a great way to get people involved in fostering and TNR. As a result of her Instagram page and interest in purchasing and selling merchandise there, Nikki started Fostering a Purpose. The company sells high-quality cat-related apparel for people and donates a portion of the proceeds to feline welfare causes. As part of C5, Nikki has been part of a big change for community cats in Las Vegas over the past decade. The group has TNRed over 35,000 cats, and since 2009, the euthanasia rate at the local municipal shelter has gone down an astounding 90%. â€œItâ€™s just a small, simple organization with volunteers, making a huge impact in Las Vegas.â€ To learn more, you can follow Nikki and her foster kittens@myfosterkittenson Instagram, visit the Fostering a Purpose website, or check out the C5 website.
