|It's Stella. Even a hungry feral cat won't eat food that is spiked with sedatives, at least not enough to matter. I think what they have to do is have someone give her a sedating shot through the cage to calm her down. The bad thing is that since the recovery from surgery is ten days, they can't keep her sedated the whole time. The vets around here said the kindest thing would be to catch her and put her to sleep. But we can't do that right now--she is my mom and she leads a pretty good life for a feral, lots of food and a warm cat shelter here and under various people's trailers. If we could just keep her from making so many kittens.
There is a tomcat living with her, we think he is her son, and we are going to try to get him fixed as he is a little calmer and it's easier with boys anyway. But he is not the father of these kittens, or of the litter I was born from--that is a grey and white cat who lives a few blocks away. He is someone's pet and they let him out all the time, and they won't get him fixed, because it's cruel. Hah! If there weren't any tomcats around, it wouldn't matter that we can't get Momcat fixed.
You are sure the cutest kittens in the world! These two that my momcat brought last night are much older than you. She apparently has been hiding them all this time. She knows that people will catch them and take them away from her eventually. Or the coyotes will get them. She doesn't understand that the three who are adopted are much happier! You guys are so lucky to be raised inside and have good homes ahead of you. It's impossible to find good homes for kittens around here, and these two are so wild, just like their mom. Purrs to you!
