Hello Kitty

Being watched
This is Mom, she’s actually a tiny lady.
These are the first two I saw the other day
Would not come out from behind its sibling for anything

  1. Feral felines? So cute, I hope they find caring homes, and don’t cause too much destruction to wildlife!

    • Yes. Someone dumped or abandoned a female and that was all it took. These are behind my parent’s house. I’m reasonably sure I will have a litter near mine soon. I’m trying to get the kittens to trust me but mom has trained them well.

      • Your are doing work, there are so many feral creatures having to live tough lives, all because they came into the world without people there to love and look after them …

      • My mother taught me to care for animals such as this, and she still does it herself. Complains a bit, but does it out of compassion.

      • I’m much more a dog person, than a cat person, but the thought of all of the kittens born into a world that doesn’t want them is never a happy thought, and while all kittens are the cutest things in the world, cats are fearless and destructive predators, and many creatures (some endangered native ones), are killed by the feral cats that are all around. Pet cats too of course, if they live outside as well as inside.

      • I thought I replied to this but it doesn’t show the reply. We live in a rural area which while still bad, was once worse about pets being dumped. Not bragging, but we’ve rescued many an animal because of that. Years ago we had over a dozen cats that would appear out of nowhere to be fed. Slowly the number fell as coyote, traffic or disease got them. I’m trying to get these to trust me so to attempt to find them real homes. I have two big dogs who hate cats all cats but the one indoor we have. But they grew up with her so there is the difference. We’ll see what happens.

      • Best of luck with the rehoming efforts. Cats are so different to dogs, in their life attitude. Cats are loners, preferring to do their own thing, dogs prefer to run with their pack, and be team members.
        This is a generalisation, of course, some cats love being part of the team, some dogs are more aloof.
        Like people, they all have their own personality.

      • Oh I understand that. We have two dogs and an inside cat. The cat can be an absolute jerk at times leaving the dogs wondering what’s up with her. I hadn’t seen the cat all day until my son came in, then she came out of hiding, but she prefers him anyway.

      • When i met my husband, he had a cat, and a dog. They were good friends, and often slept in the same place together, somewhere soft and warm inside. Then his old dog died, and we got a puppy. The cat put up with the puppy, and taught her how to behave. Then we got our first show dog, a Schnauzer puppy, and the cat said, no way, and went and hid. We realised we needed to find that poor now quite old cat, a better home, so she went to end her days at my husband’s sister-in-law.
        Now we live in the country, only one dog, with that schnauzer and the others that came after her long gone. The only cats we see at our place are strays, or feral cats, and our current dog barks at them if they come around our place.
        It’s interesting to watch …

      • The not so stray cats that came to stay, if my dogs could get out, it would be on. My front yard is fully fenced, the cats mostly hang out in the back yard. My dogs know they are there and would let them know they are not welcomed by them if they could get to them. So far, we’ve managed to prevent that.

      • good on your for all you, and your mother have done, and are still doing!

      • leendadll says:

        I’m in the same situation. Momma kinda trusts me so I’m hoping to tame her and the kids simultaneously.

      • This momma trusts my folks, especially dad. According to my mother, mom has even let dad pet her some. She has for the moment left her family under mom’s back porch and a couple were on the porch this morning. If they stay, I may have a chance. Mom-the cat- seems to know we aren’t going to hurt her young so there is that.

      • leendadll says:

        Yay! And good luck!

  2. Yes, I’ve read that. One more reason I’m trying to get these to trust me and get them into a home. I prefer dogs as well..

  3. leendadll says:

    Blue eyes… still young!!

  4. They look super cute!!!

  5. Oh my goodness! Cuteness overload, I can not resist kittens, or cats, I love them all so much! Bless you for trying to tame them, best of luck! 😻

    They are beautiful…

  7. Rebecca says:

    Pretty babies! I love the color of their eyes.

    What a cutie!

  9. It will be awesome if you can locate such a service. Good for wild creatures, and good for the cats too.
    Being an Australian, living in country Australia, I have strong feelings about native wildlife being destroyed by cats, bot feral and and tame. Household cats if let outside kill creatures too, and the havoc wrought by them on vulnerable native creatures is horrendous.
    Properly cared for, and kept inside, cats can be wonderful pets for those who like a pet that isn’t as demanding as having a dog can sometimes be.

    • We have both, cat and dogs. Our cat though is strictly indoors. I’ve read the articles on how dangerous cats are to wildlife, I had hoped to get these tamed and find homes but their fear runs deep.

      • Poor little kitty cats …

      • Currently they are living and thriving behind my parent’s house. Their mother takes good care of them. I’m hoping to start spending more time trying to tame them so to find homes.

      • Best wishes to you with that! Mother cat may be untamable, but that doesn’t mean her babies will be doomed to the sometimes brutal life of a feral animal!

      • Mom kitty actually will let my dad pet her, but he’s the one who has fed her the most. I sat out on the steps this morning and watched as she came close enough to eat. She watched my every breath, but she did eat with me out there. I hope that is a step in a good direction.

      • It certainly sounds like a positive step. Give her time, rushing it wouldn’t work, you know that. She may always be on edge around you, but that’s the feral life …

      • Yes, I know. I’ve completely lost track of how many feral cats have passed through this way. We’ve saved some, most we haven’t. All we can do is keep trying.
