Trapping update: Day two

Good news! We caught the adult male last night. I dropped off both mama and him at the shelter for neutering/spaying this morning. I will pick them up after work.

I was hoping to catch a kitten or two, but no luck. The snow really hindered our progress--the traps kept sticking, and with people out shoveling/snowplows/etc. it was not quiet enough for them to come out.

I'll set the traps again tonight.

PS Both Benny and Ringo were very curious about the activity out on the porch. Benny nearly bolted out there, but we stopped him in time. Given that both cats were in cages under towels, he wouldn't have gotten to see them anyway.

Great to hear. If you're not already a member of Alley Cat Allies Feral Friends Network, consider joining. I'm a member and it's a wonderful to connect with locals.

Well done! Will the two adult cats have an opportunity to be adopted or are they too feral?

Hope the kittens show up soon.

Two kitties on the porch couch

Ringo and Lucy both love to sneak out on the porch anytime they can (with sneak meaning that Jim opens the door for them).
