Pregnant indoor kitten living in a park

I need help!! PLZ.

When i went to park this morning to enjoy my breakfast and coffee, i saw little pregnant kitten. She is definitely a house cat, she was the first one to approach me and actually purred at some point. She is heavily pregnant and under year old, also she is very petite. She is not declawed, but i don't believe she will make it in a wild for very long. She seemed to be so trusting and fragile.

I spoke to the park maintenance guy and he said that she showed up about 2 weeks ago and right now she seems to be a full time resident there. Also he said he saw other wild cats chasing her.

Unfortunately i cannot take her in atm, even temporarily but she desperately need home asap. I contacted Toronto Cat Rescue, but haven't got a call back yet. What else can i do? Or may be there is somebody here who can help, plz?

She is located in North York at GRoss Lord Park. I took some pictures of her on my cell phone, but unfortunately i have no opportunity to transfer them to computer.

Whats ur suggestions? What can be done? Is there any hope for this girl?

if nothing else, could you not drive her to a shelter?

This is TCR's busiest time of the year. Them and just about every other rescue. Give them a chance. Meanwhile - maybe that relative of yours that had Shura while Kissa was recuperating will take her until TCR can.

I live 5 minutes from G-Ross park in toronto.... where in the park did you see her? How did she look like? Unfortunatley in our area a lot of people believe that cats should have the freedom to enjoy the outdoors.... but this park has coyotes, foxes and many other wildlife that could be dangerous to cat... let alone the traffic in the area.... grrrr.....

Masha - If you can get her then contact TCR hopefully they can pick her up. But as I said it's their busiest time of the year. If not PM me. Maybe we can figure something out.

So far, i have contacted Abbey Cat Addoptions, North Toronto Cat Rescue, Annex Cat Rescue, Fostering Felines, and as i mentioned before TCR. As i understood THS does not accept anybody in atm. If i missed any organization that might help plz let me know. So far no answer from any of them.
I will try contacting my aunt, but she will be available only after 9 pm and i greatly doubt that she will be ok fostering this girl.
I saw her at the Dufferent and Steels at northen entrance, the one across from highland farms. It would be really amazing if u can help her
I ll pm u my info, if u dont mind.

If either one of you can catch and keep this kitty till Thurs afternoon pm me and I will make arrangements to pick her up from you then. I will foster for TCR until kitties are old enough to be adopted.

Oh, sorry did answer other question.
Basicly she is petite, black and surprisingly has shiny coat, her ears seems to be clean. I didnt see any obvious signs of infection or illness. She is very friendly and approachable. She is also quite a talker))
And she has couple long pieces of ginger hair on her mid tail that noticeable when she puts her tail up high in the air.
Sorry, i didn't notice any other distinct characteristics

When you go back in the morning or whenever if you can take a can of tuna and a carrier, put the open carrier on the ground near her, open the can of tuna and put it in the back of the carrier. Hopefully she is hungry enough to go in and then close the door quickly. To tempt her in hopefully faster sprinkle a little of the tuna juice on the ground in a line toward the carrier. That sometimes does the trick.
Great attempt tonight ladies!!

Another thing I normally don't advocate but - if all else fails - scruff her. Pick her up really quickly, have carrier on edge and put her in the carrier backwards. I have had to do that in the past as well.

Another failed attempt. She comes for food and scratches, but the second she sees carrier she runs, not too far thou. Tried to pick her up, that didn't work work either.
