    I was wondering that, too.

    I can keep two of them. I have another spoken for, and I think I should have no problem giving the others away. My Veterinarian is a friend of mine and he helps me with numerous projects. I'm sure he can't wait to help with kittens!

    Even if they were being taken care of by a feral mother, they would then grow to be feral too. Not something many communities are okay with. Don't worry, they will be placed with good homes who want a cat.

    I am glad you are bottle feeding them but if they had stayed with their mom, it wouldn't be necessary.

    I wasn't suggesting you leave them there. I just thought if you contacted the humane society or feral cat group, if there is one in your area, they could trap the mom, and then take the family as a group until the kittens are old enough to adopt out.

    Now the mom is still out there, unspayed, and will probably have another litter.

    we took in a mamma and her two girls. she was raising them on her own and very scared of people. she wouldn't let me near the kittens. the two girls were all she had left of who knows how many in her first litter. They all live in our house now and the two kittens are still a bit shy. Especially one. but they all get lots of loving and food and i take mamma out on a leash every day. she is so sweet and loving now. I couldn't do without them.
    I should add, all of them are fixed. we weren't sure mamma would stay with us or insist on going back to live on the street. got her fixed, either way. But she loves having a safe haven.

    Adorable babies!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
