We have had a feral cat in the neighborhood for 3 months, she has torn up my flowerbeds and ruined everything. If we try to get near her she literally comes at us with teeth showing and claws ripping. I finally had to get a cat trap from the humane officer and catch her. I did catch her and sent her yesterday to the pound (they do not euthinize them here) well today 3 kittens came out from behide the building she was staying in and were crying so hard. I felt like complete do do. I went and bought nursery milk for cats and kitten food and fed them and they did come out to eat but are so wild just like the mom was. I know I have to trap them to get them and have called for another trap or 2 to get this done so they can go be with mom again. If I had even thought she had kittens I would not have done this. She was just so mean and vicious even to the kids riding there bikes she would attack them. I feel like a boob right now.

I Think You Did The Right Thing With Trying To Capture The Momma Cat...Ferral Cats Are Way Nutso!!!..Maybe When You Trap The Babies They Can Reunite Them With Their Mom...You Are A Great Person!!

You did the right thing! You had no idea that she had kittens, so don't feel bad! I'm glad the kitties are eating & hopefully you can trap them all real soon so that they can be with mama again. :cat:

You definately did the right thing. Now they can be with their mommy and they can all be fixed. Don't feel like a DO DO and you are not a boob!:smile tee

Some of our grown children work in a program where they trap feral cats, have them sterilized so no more kittens, then they are turned loose again. If the pound where you took the mother cat is part of that program, it's great. And they will very likely find homes for the kittens.
I do agree that you did the right thing. Cats that are wild usually need attention like flea treatment, innoculations, etc., that she will get at the pound.

Thanks everyone, I talked to the pound today and the momy cat's milk had dried up so they were not nursing anymore. I bought kitty food and have another trap to catch the kittens. I don't feel as bad now that I know they weren't nursing.

you did te right thing.. had one of them scratched or bit one of the children, they may had to have shots to stop anytype of infection oor god forbid rabies.. try to catch her youngins' and don't worry about it..

Yup, I have to agree with the other gals....you did the right thing.
Think of it this way, you broke the possible vicious cycle of this cat breeding and rebreeding countless times....resulting in oodles of homeless and even potential future feral PACKs of cats...
Don't beat yourself up....you should pat yourself on the back. I think you helped all involved more than you know, k? :)

you did the right thing we had a feral female cat in our old neighborhood and she had a litter that she decided she didnt wont. the runt and hse dumped him on our front porch. his little eyes werent even open. we bottle-fed him and then she dumped the other 4 two weeks later. we ended up being so bonded to the first one she dumped. we keep him and we also keep another little male in the litter and we had somebody come out and trap her and she was actually pregnant again when they got her she cold have hurt somebody in the neighborhood u did the right thing dont feel bad
