    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...

    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?

    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...
