Well I can never help myself to take in abandoned animals I guess that's the soft side of me. I was out and about and saw a few kittens under a car. There are a TON of stray cat's over where I live. Poor little things it was 90 degree's out and one of them came out to my daughter crying and was licking a little puddle of water. I couldn't just freaking leave them. So I managed to pull the other 2 out from under this car and just took them home. Bathed them fed them and I have ordered some frontline and drontal to rid them of any fleas and worms. I have an appointment to get them spayed and neutered next month and I will probably keep them for awhile until I can place them in good homes. It really upsets me that people let their cat's out intact to breed freely within the neighborhood. I am not sure how long these little one's would have lasted had I not taken them in. They appear to be about 6-8 weeks old. I have no idea what breed they are other than they are really playful and sweet. And I am glad I got them when I did they are a little thin but not too bad.

Krystal I felt so bad it was so hot out I just couldn't leave them they are babies and I felt like crap. I had to take them if I didn't they would have died I am sure of that. If it's one thing I can do is get them fixed and feed and house them until I can get them homes. But just leaving them was not an option.

I know how you feel. I can't turn away a sad furry face in need either. It gets super hot over here too and being in that kind of heat with no water they don't really stand a chance. Poor babies, I bet they just love you right now :)

Yeah I imagine one of the many strays over here mated had the kittens fed them until weaned and the litter mates stuck together once the mother left them. They were all under a car hiding probably trying to stay cool. It's funny because they are all just running around everywhere it feels like animal kingdom right now LOL. They have been sleeping in a pile on my bed LOL. Yes I think they love me and my kids they have been marking us like crazy. Cute little squishy's for sure.

Blondie right now I am just trying to get them healthy. I put in an order for de-wormer and flea preventative. I am going to get them spayed/neutered next month. Get them their shot's and try and place them my sister want's one. My daughter is asking me to keep them LOL. I will keep them as long as it takes to get them healthy and find them good homes. Right now they need to be together and I will make sure they get everything need before I even think of letting them go to anyone. Until then they are just running around all over the place playing, eating and sleeping. LOL

My town has a cat catch policy where they provide crate traps to catch 'em, then they are taken to be fixed, then brought back. It's been for over a year now, but the cats are still coming. Hard to control...

Eagle it makes no sense to let these animals just mate freely. There are so many low cost spay and neuter clinics in town why don't they just take their pet's and get them fixed? I don't get it really. If you have cat's that you are going to let outside to wander they need to be fixed.

That's correct. The problem in my town is strays. For years people fed them, put milk or water out, but they grew wild. Only the young ones seem tame. This is why there are fines for feeding. Humans created this problem...some people just never learn to take responsibility for their acts of doing or not doing. They blame others, but always fail to look towards themselves. It's like a disease, it really is. I really feel sorry for the cats, and I've never had one myself...one wild cat used to share food with my Alaskan Malemute years ago, but that was it. It was a female tiger striped grey and black. But that was in the country. I see more in town, so that equals the equivalent of cats getting dumped or loose. We know the answer to the problem, but nobody ever does a thing about it...

Oooooh Kittens are feisty little buggers. I have to clean the cat room at the shelter sometimes. (Larger square room with sliding glass and kitten proof mesh doors)
While I'm sitting there cleaning they climb up by back, bite my legs, jump up at me, and some will start screaming.
I'm glad you took them in, I am the same way. I just can't leave animals behind.
