    Feral kittens & mama - foster/socializing advice needed

    Hey everybody, It's been forever! So much has happened since my last update: - The kittens started to let me pet them while eating (out in the yard), but were still very skittish. - When I finally figured out how I could take them inside (in a way that my husband was okay with), I trapped the...

    Feral kittens & mama - foster/socializing advice needed

    Hi all, I'm coming back here with updates and more need for advice :) Updates: - I've made lots of progress with the kittens recently: the striped one is still most skittish, but the other two have calmed down to the point where I can put my hand on their bowl and they'll stay... aaaand: I even...

    Feral kittens & mama - foster/socializing advice needed

    Mom was not visibly pregnant - at least I wouldn’t have noticed. I did also see the kittens try to nurse a few times (I doubt she had any milk left), and she happily let them - not sure if she would have if she were pregnant? For their surgery, I’m taking them to the ACC. I would much rather...

    Thank you for all of your advice. I’ve tried the things you’ve suggested, except for hiding my legs - so I’ll start doing that. They haven’t shown much interest in the wand toys I got so far - it’s interesting, because the very first time I pulled the first wand toy out, they were fascinated...

    Feral kittens & mama - foster/socializing advice needed

    Hey all, So, when you say you’ve successfully socialized cars outdoors… how do you do it? I’ve gotten them from running away and hiding until I’m no longer there, to coming toward me, all the way up to my toes and eating their food in front of me. This took about 1.5-2 weeks. But I feel like...

    Feral kittens & mama - foster/socializing advice needed

    Hi all, Thank you so much for your advice! I really appreciate it. I've been feeding them and they're definitely growing hehe! Mom joins sometimes, but is also out and about a lot. I've seen her catch a few mice, so that eases my mind in that she's okay out there. Trapping her, however, might...

    Thank you for your input ❤️ I‘ll get mom taken care of as soon as possible - just need a trap and an available appointment. And I’ll keep working with all of them to see what I can do! Mom actually seems to be warming up to me too, which I didn’t expect. We‘re nowhere near petting them for now...

    Feral kittens & mama - foster/socializing advice needed

    Hey Noralan, Thank you so much for your quick and detailed response. Technically, my husband would prefer not to have them in our yard either, but that might be something we can compromise on. However, another layer of worry for me is the fact that we’re renting this place - so when we move...

    Feral kittens & mama - foster/socializing advice needed

    Hi all, My name is Sandra, I’m completely new to this world of cat rescue. I’ve gone down this rabbit hole for the last 2 weeks, ever since the 3 cutest kittens and their mom moved into my backyard. The little ones seem to be about 3-4 months old, so the rescue group I contacted won’t take...
