Question 3 feral cats need help and home

I have a cat situation which I hope you can give me some guidance to
solve.

The following sums it up:

- 3 feral cats, two are 5 months old and one mother, which appears
pregnant;
- have been feeding them for over 3 months;
- planning to catch them and get them to vet re vaccinations, medical
attention and spay/neutering;
- did costing:* approx. $575
- hope to find a person to share costs
- hope to find a nice barn for them as this is a high traffic area.

Thanks for any ideas you may be able to give me about caring for these
pussycats.

Algee

You must catch them and get them spayed and neutered. Mom will probably be having another litter any day now. Too bad the kittens weren't caught a long time ago. Much harder to tame them at this age.

You can call vets and tell them you are trapping and rescuing these cats. Some vets will give you a break on the price and you may get a big discount.

We do have someone looking for a couple of barn cats, but they don't want ones who are so terrified that they never see them. If you can get these cats in and neutered, we can help you place them in barns if possible.

Once they are spayed/neutered, if no home is available you can provide shelter outside and release them again. This is the worst option unless you own your home and can safely keep them out there.

Algee, I think its great that you are feeding these cats. I know a group called
The bond foundation. http://www.bondspayneuter.com This great lady helps to pay from spaying and neutering for some of the no kill animal shelters in Montreal. (I believe she's helping out 5 shelters at the moment.) She also runs spay neuter Canada. Right now spay neuter Canada is just in Montreal. Call her, and she will make an appoitment at a vet clinic closest to your house who also agreeded to help her by reducing their sterlization and first vaccination. You will pay the reduced cost. I hope this helps.

Hi twintommy,

The cats live outside our home, mostly under the front gallery and another place near-by.

I have made 2 different shelters but they only used 1 of them and only for a short time. The problem may be that there is also a ferral (not sure) male in the neighbourhood and I think he may have made it dangerous for them to be in the shelter as he comes to eat also.

The plot thickens.
