Today I went out on my porch and there was three kitties sitting there looking at me. I caught one and she was so cute. She is long haired with a grey tail and one grey dot on her head but the rest of her is white. Her siblings are black and tabby. And yes they are wild and probably about 6 weeks old. We have a screened in porch that somehow they got in through a hole I didn't know was there. My daughter now thinks that she has kitties but she is confused on why they run. I really don't know what to do about them because I can't have a cat using my porch as a litter box. What would ya'll do? And I can't take them to the pound. Thats not an opption. Thanks in advance.
You could put up signs for free kitties, or put them back outside and fix the hole. I understand where you are at. My mom currently has five strays on her porch. She loves them but wants them to go away, but then she feeds them. She doesn't believe me when I tell her that they are now there for good.
I would keep them and tame them (since thats what I do anyway) and then find them a loving home when they are tame or keep them! :o) I know how you feel I have olny one stray rite now and my two other cats they are all inside cats. I was going to find Pipper a home once she was tamed but I just couldn't give her up!! :o)
all good suggestions. definately do something like that. if you take them to the humane society they will probably be put down. i know our humane society has way to many cats... maybe you could take them all in and get them spayed/neutered. and then find homes.
You could also check around to other SPCAs. The one in county doesn't euthanise and has a program set up with our Department of Aging. Animals that aren't adopted out are spayed and given their shots, and then given to elderly folks who could use a companion.
I haven't fed the cats because it looks like someone is doing it. They are pretty healthy looking. I guess I could just keep them around here because they do keep rodents away. Oscar had one cornered in the backyard though but he looked more interested in them. He didn't even puff up at them. I was shocked. But the kitty was not a happy camper. I don't care if they sleep on the porch though because its getting cold at night. I thought about taking them out to my moms since she lives out in the country. I'm sure I'll think of something. Thanks for the advice.
It would cost way too much to get them fixed. We are living off my part time pay check and Brads disabilty which isn't very much. We are getting a huge chunk of money soon so maybe I could do something about it then. We really don't have a bad cat problem here though. So I'm glad about that. I'm pretty sure though that if someone finds these kitties they will pick them up. They are too cute.
