Someone gave a mother cat that was expecting babies. This was an outside cat that had always stayed outside and this was perfect for us for we were wanting a cat that would help keep the snakes away. Well as soon as the man and his son left, the cat disappeared, then she had her babies and brought the babies up on the porch after they were several weeks old. I reached to pick one of the babies up and it scratched me and realized these little kittens was really wild. but to make this story short, we do not ever see the mother and hardly see these babies and they are mothers now and none of them let me get close to them. My husband puts out food in the back twice a day for about 2 hours each time to make sure they have food to eat but they stay out in the woods. I have finally made friends with one of the cats, she was pregnant and her babies will let me hold them if I sneak up to get a holt of them, and her sister had kittens and she has just brought them up and there were three. I reached and held them and they are so cute but then she took them and moved them but brought them back on the porch to me today... but there is only two. so don't know where the third one is etc but could be around.. But we are buying lots of food... but after they eat they go back into the woods... But last week, realized I had 13 cats, that was eating at the same time.. This is not counting these new little babies. We do not mind feeding the cats but we don't want to get in trouble over having too many cats. We do live out of a city, just in the county etc. in Georgia. There is no way we can catch these cats to get them their shots that you generally give them... but what are the laws on taking care of stray cats etc. The new little ones since I am holding them often I believe I will be able to give them away but the older cats will not get close to me... any suggestions and is there a limit amount of cats I can keep legally? Also what are the requirements on the immunizations etc. I would never be able to catch one of them for that. I just don't want to get in trouble over these cats being out in the woods at my house... and us feeding them. But I cannot stand the thoughts of the cats being hungry. However we have not seen another snack since we got the cat... Multiplied fast... any suggestions from anyone... what are the laws? Thanks for your help.
Hi, That is wonderful of you to to take care of the cats/kittens. If no one says anything I would not worry about it. The only thing the anuimal cointrol can do is set traps or tell you to get rid of them. You want get in any trouble. Their are some states and citys have no limit on cats since your near the woods. You can get homopathic immunizations that you can put in water bowls including rabies thru CATWELL Yahoo groups. Very inexpensive to get to Sharon Hamel or Irene de Viller or vet homopathics and have tons of information. Keep up the love on the kittys. Kaye
I want some friends I can go level with or take some ops. Hard to find people on during my play time because I'm in the USA. I am currently Protopharma but I can switch on my own to whichever faction. I prefer anti-city.
