I have a lot of news, some unexpected.
First, I have not trapped any kittens. I haven't even seen them! I've tried two different kinds of bait, sardines and fish Fancy Feast (warmed). Any ideas from those more experienced?
Second, I brought home the male and female last night. Male was VERY unhappy, so I let him out within an hour of coming home. The goofball then got himself stuck inside a trap again, so I let him out. LOL
Now the female. . .
This is NOT a feral cat.
She is sweet, sat on my lap, purred, rubbed me. She has no interest in going outside. She was once loved and had a home.
It's supposed to turn bitterly cold in a few days. I can't release this sweet cat back outside. Her fur is thin and she is also thin. She's eating 4, 3 oz. cans of food and a nugget of raw since I brought her home!
We are debating our options. . . but know that bringing her in may be in the cards. I have a vet appointment for her today. We'll evaluate her and see what happens. . .stay tuned.
