The critters are...........

baby kitties. Meowm hasn't been able to do TNR, so we have babies. Five of them. Three black ones and two gray tabbies. Their eyes are open, they are walking around and they are eating some wet food that Meowm has put out. Meowm is purrty sure who the mommakitty is, but she doesn't know how much the mommakitty is feeding the babies. Meowm hasn't touched the babies, but the mommakitty does know that Meowm has seen them, so hopefully that isn't making her stay away.

Their appears to be two stronger kitties, one on middle ground and two weaker ones. Several of them have goopy eyes. There is no way we can take these babies in...to much is going on and we just don't have room. Meowm has sent some emails to rescues so hopefully she will hear from one soon. Otherwise Meowm may just have to take them to a shelter as she doesn't know how long they will last as things stand. She realizes that at the shelter they may just put some of them down....and that breaks her heart....but at the same time she doesn't want them suffering trying to live either. Uh-oh, now her eyes are leaking...we better go for now.

Oh you're right, they would not be fun to have around stealing your mom's time. Tell your mom she can only do as much as she is doing! Last year the Woman at the Barn took home an itty bitty kitten to take care of and he died that night. Feral kittens have a hard life but its wonderful your mom is helping them.

Oh gosh, what a difficult situation. I think you are right not to take them in, because they probably have an illness that Junior or Orion could catch. I hope you can locate a shelter who will take them in.

oh Junior, we understand. i hope you will be able to find a rescue for them, but unfortunately as my mommy found out last summer, sometimes they have to go to a shelter.
TNR is wonderful but expensive, and these kittens will be able to make more kittens in just a few months. it is a horrible situation for your mommy to be in, but kittens are adopted at shelters all the time!
we are sending your mommy many understanding hugs.

Oh, I hope your Mum knows that she is doing all she can. If the kittens have to go to a shelter at least they won't be suffering. It is so sad and so hard. Darn it, if people would just spay and neuter their pets, sigh...

Oh Junior, it is good of your mom to do as much as she does! We hope a rescue group is able to help the baby kittens.

Poor Meowm. I agree with everyone else - she's doing what's best. Perhaps a shelter can take them in, but left alone, they face a very difficult life. Purrs to Meowm.
