I saw a house a few blocks away being cleaned out and the previous tenants' stuff being piled at the curb, so I decided I'd plunder. Nothing worth anything...
But the lowlifes left a cat behind. As well as it's litter of kittens.
There were at least 7-9 of the cutest little kittens huddled next to the house scared and hungry. Apparently the mother was having real difficulty feeding that many and they were looking pretty weak.
I set about trapping them 1-2 at a time in one of my live traps and am now nursing them to health. Trying to trap the remaining kittens and mother, but I think they've relocated. I have 5 kittens and am trying to find homes or shelters that could accommodate one or all. The city I live in cancelled all animal control services years ago and the stray animal population has gone crazy, go figure.
I guess since I have several traps and no job or prospects for one, I may as well start doing something about all this. I've been in contact with non-profit who spays or neuters stray/feral cats and returns them. They find homes for the kittens.
These little guys are so adorable!!! And so sweet...
They're about 3-4 weeks old. I hate having to do all this, but no one else was going to. I called every "animal lover" in the book and none of them walk the walk, apparently.
