Kitten season is in full swing it seems! Our week started with a full evening of trapping. We began at Vic Park and Danforth where we've gotten 10 of 12 done but the last two were not to be that evening. We then made our way across town to Keele and Eglinton to a new-ish to us colony. Last time we got three cats and this time we quickly trapped two, thankfully we are almost done there. I had been speaking with a woman earlier about some kittens and since we were close we decided to go have a look and see how old they were.
When we arrived the feeder had five tiny kittens all out on the grass and her young sons were playing with them. Many of the kittens had already died. There were two that couldn't have been more than two weeks old and the other three were about four weeks. Normally I would never take two week old kittens and even four is borderline but these kittens were no longer in a safe spot and their mom wasn't around, we had no confidence they would be cared for so we bundled them up.
God bless Lesley, she bottle fed them overnight and by morning thanks to the wonders of Facebook and an amazing community, we found a super experienced bottle feeder for the tinies. The older ones have been placed now too!
