An elderly lady answered and when I asked about the kittens she said oh would you like them? She was going to sell the house and these cats were just living in her yard uncared for. A few days later Aaffien and I managed to trap all the kittens and the mom in under 15 minutes. Aaffien took the kittens for a few days and tonight they are going to a TCR foster home where I'm sure in a few weeks they will go to forever homes. I got Momma spayed and will be releasing her tomorrow, she seems too feral for adoption. I'm hoping to find a well meaning neighbour to feed her or I guess it will be part of my route.
There must be so many instances of this happening all over the city right now, unwanted kittens being born. Knowing what would happen to them if they weren't caught, socialized and adopted, there was no way I could walk away.
