Caught the Cats!

Lovely Daughter #1 caught Mama Cat last night! 


Then she caught two of the kittens this morning, and the last kitten just a few hours before midnight. She used humane traps and plenty of stinky, yummy food:


Early this morning Lovely Daughter #1 and I took Mama Cat to the vet to be spayed:


She was not pleased. But her life now that she is fixed will be so much easier. Tonight Lovely Daughter #1 released Mama back into the garden. Daughter will continue to feed Mama and give her a safe, dry place to sleep on rainy and/or cold nights.


I took this photo while Mama was at the vet waiting to be processed. She looks so young!


When she wasn't giving me the Stink Eye, she gave me a lot of the back of her head:


All three kittens are safe and in the house, ready to start the process of "gentling" them so they can be adopted into loving homes. LD#1 caught the first two kittens with canned tuna fish. The last kitten--the most timid one--wasn't having any of it. So LD#1 brought out the Big Guns--fried chicken. That did the trick. 


Tomorrow starts a new chapter in my life--sitting for hours with three kittens, teaching them to trust humans, to accept head skritches, to not freak out when a gentle hand is extended. I'm more of a dog person; I don't really gravitate toward cats. But I will do this because it's the right thing to do.

It's not the cats' fault. Somebody let Mama get in this predicament. LD#1 and I were there to help her and her little family out of a bad situation.


Meanwhile, here's a sobering thought. I saw this handbill in the vet's office today:


Please, spay and neuter your pets. Tell all your friends to, also.

It's the right thing to do.
