STILL
TRYING
TOO
HARD


There is a feral cat that just made more feral cats somewhere in the neighborhood, and the two surviving kittens have recently been moved behind my shed. What do I do? The momcat sucks at feeding herself to the point that I gave the kittens a bacon strip when they were meowing for her. They're also terrified of me. What do I do? Momcat is 100% feral and has attempted to swipe at me for feeding her dumb children, but I don't want my backyard to turn into a cat zoo, especially if they won't even let me pet them. I have to find a way to keep the kittens from making more kittens at some point.

help.

I also can't take pictures of any of them because they run away before I can get a camera out.

Contact a local “Trap/Neuter/Release” (TNR) volunteer organization. Most cities have one or more. They will help you set out traps, get the mother spayed, and then put them back in the area. If the kittens aren’t too old they can be habituated and adopted, otherwise they will be released back with the mother cat.

If you want to keep other cats out of your yard start putting some food down for her and she will establish her territory. Don’t just dump a big rear end bag of kibble down though as that will attract raccoons and other vermin. Properly managed a non-breeding feral cat can have a decent life, albeit shorter than a proper pet.
