Easy Disposal of life at Waukesha HAWS.

I got the shock of my life the other week when I saw how easily kittens
were disposed of.
A lady in our park brought a mother cat and her kittens in to Waukesha
Haws the same place a couple months ago we brought a six week kitten
in.My husband asked them twice if the kitten would be put down.They
told us they never put young kittens down unless they were seriously
ill.
When this lady brought this mother and her kittens in they were
disposed of within hours claiming they were feral.

Definition of feral--of or characteristic of wild animals;ferocious;
brutal.

I had cared for the Mother cat who had walked in my house many times
to be fed and petted.
When the neighbor took her in and I found out I helped her trap the
very small kittens to bring them in to the Mother with the hope of them
having a chance not realizing I helped bring them to their death
within hours.
Is there a such thing as feral kitten so young that it;s hard to
separate feral from fear?
I had petted these kittens before they were hauled away.
My husband and I have socialized many young kittens within a few days.
Knowing the first step would be a warm bath to get the outdoor wild
scent off them.
Then to routinely nurture them through slowly letting them eventually
climb on us feeling their control.
Apparently Haws did not feel the need to give these kittens a chance as
they were put to sleep with the Mother hours later.
Was it that easy to dispose of them faster than a crumpled piece of
paper?
Were the not worth the time of trying to ease their fear?
Is it fair to call a kitten so small feral ?
These are questions HAWS needs to reevaluate before I ever donate to
them again .I hope others feel the same.
