Oh my paw...now what? About three weeks ago, Cindy came home with one of her cat-traps with kittens in it. Boy was she upset, too...she goes out trapping kitties every couple of weeks as part of a Trap/Neuter/Release program on Oahu, so she can get them spayed or neutered...but this time...kittens. Maybe four weeks old. She put them in MY varikennel, which is fine, I'm not using it or anything, out in the garage and then she started pacing...and thinking...
Turns out, these guys are way too little for surgery. She said if she was to just let them go, they'd go back into the colony and get big and have kittens of their own, and maybe never ever go in a trap again once it had happened to them. So she's keeping them...she said temporarily...til they get big, and also til they get healthier. These guys must've had it rough man...fleas, worms, ear mites...ringworm...ICK.
Well, fine...they live out in the garage in the cat cave Cindy made, we never ever cross paths, and there's been no change in the routine for me n' Ellie at all. Just hard to believe cats are living just the other side of the wall, you know?
I guess I'm just not sure they'll really want to go back to being feral after all this...I know they miss their momma and the other kittens, but they sure look better now...

Cindy is wonderful to help these kittens...Know what you mean. I have a kitty that lives on the other side of my fence...but your kittens are cute....
that is so nice to keep them and make them safe, My Uncle who lives in Las Vegas does the same thing with all the strays in his area.
