My neighbor has 2 cats that now have 4 kittens. They found the father of these kittens at a friends house and took him home since he was sort of tame. The cat would fight with my male cat, giving him nasty infections. He was never fixed or taken to the vet, and when he peed on our front door they said it wasn't really their cat, though when we threatened to take him to the pound they said that would be stealing. The kittens' mother was either born a stray or dropped off by the road, and she came up the hill and began living under the deck. She is not fixed and is very skittish. Well surprise surprise, she had 4 kittens, we think they are about 6 weeks old. They decided to either leave the kittens, or try catch them all and bring them to the pound. I know feral cats would not stand a chance there, so we are going to catch try to tame the kittens and get the mother cat fixed and take them to a no-kill shelter. Since we lost Oliver to a coyote, we decided we could ''rescue'' one of the kittens. It would be a house cat, because of all the predators around here. The thing is, the mom and her 4 babies hide under their deck all day with lots of black widow under it, and only come out at night to hunt and eat a can of wet food they put out for them. The only way to catch the kittens is to 1)buy a trap 2)make a drop-trap 3)catch them with a fishing net taped to a long pole. I have no idea if the net idea would be successful, but that would be the cheapest and easiest thing to make. I also do not know how to go about taming the kitten. Thanks for any advice!
