    Hissing spitting feral kittens

    Have 4 feral kittens in our garage that are 5 weeks old. I've been trying to get close to them but they hiss and spit at me. I don't want to stress them too much so I leave them pretty much alone. I just poke my head in where they are every day and talk to them. Any suggestions to get them tamed...

    Today she brought the kittens up to the house into the garage. She brought 2 this morning and then I saw her carrying 1 this afternoon. Now just a little bit ago she brought the 4th one.

    How often do you feed feral/outdoor cats?

    It looks like most people feed twice a day. I have 8 cats right now that come in to feed. They don't usually finish off everything in the morning so there is some food available throughout most of the day. I add food late in the day and it probably lasts them into the night. That's what has been...

    How often do you feed feral/outdoor cats?

    I've been feeding some feral/outdoor cats for the last couple of years. I've been feeding twice a day, morning and early evening. Last summer the evening feeding was becoming a problem as skunks and raccoons were coming in. I was thinking of cutting back to only feeding in the morning. Wondering...

    When can you pick up feral kittens?

    Sad news. Sometime today she moved the kittens to who knows where. They were there this morning but when I went out there just a few minutes ago they were gone.

    When can you pick up feral kittens?

    She was a true feral. She started coming in with the other cats last winter along with her sibling. It's a heated garage.. She was quite young at the time. She wouldn't come near me. Always hid behind the car tires till food went in the dishes. When I would go out there, the friendly ones would...

    When can you pick up feral kittens?

    Yup I'm her food source. A week and 1/2 ago we had a snow storm with 9" of snow dumped on us. I took a dish with food out to her every day for a couple of days. I could see she was eating it. Snow melted within a couple of days and now she is coming to the garage with the other cats again.

    When can you pick up feral kittens?

    No rescue groups around here. Last year I had a similar situation. I had a feral cat that had 5 kittens. I managed to get her tamed and her kittens. When the kittens got big enough I was able to take her and 2 kittens in to a low cost spay/neuter clinic. 2 more went the following month and 1...

    When can you pick up feral kittens?

    A feral cat had kittens about 3-1/2 weeks ago. I've been able to pet her when she comes up to the house to get food along with the other cats. She won't let me pick her up tho. She won't come near me any other time. I found the kittens right away. They are in the front seat of a junk pickup...

    Leftover medications

    I called our local humane society and I was told they would definitely take any leftover meds. What they can't use they pass on to their Vet. Was happy to hear that.

    Leftover medications

    We live in a rural area and do not have any rescue groups. The closest would be our local humane society. I'm going to try to call them tomorrow.

    Leftover medications

    I contacted the Vet's office and they are not interested in taking the meds back for someone who could use it. I wonder if the local humane society could use it?

    He did get a dose of Revolution in Dec. which is for worms. I gave him another dewormer a week ago and he'll be getting a second dose in another week per directions. Just in case.
