Good news to report all around! We caught the last kitten, she's the one on the right, isn't she a stunner! They definitely need some taming but they are young enough to be socialized and find homes.

Yesterday was a busy trapping today, back at two locations we've been to before. At our Donlands spot we found out that there were four kittens, and we managed to trap two of them. That seems to be our average these days, get two kittens and then have trouble getting the other two, sigh.
Then we were down off Queen trying to get a couple of adults and a litter of kittens, we had never seen them before but restaurant staff were feeding them. For the first time ever, I trapped pigeons! Guess they like cat food, sigh. After we release them and Lesley shooed them away, we did trap the momma cat, but no sign of the kittens.

I'm sure it seemed like a good idea, she wanted a kitten, and here was a cute one for sale on kijiji for $75, so she took it home, thought it was 9 weeks old, went to the store, bought food, a brush, shampoo, kitty earwipes, and then discovered it had wounds on its legs and was having trouble walking.
Having no money to take the kitten to a vet, she posted the kitten on kijiji, saying she needed vet attention. So what did I do when I saw this, you know the answer, I got in the car (and with Susan as my bodyguard) drove to Jane and Finch to get the kitten. The girl came out with this darling baby in a little bed. An hour's drive and $50 later I had myself a kitten but one who first of all was not 9 weeks all, and secondly desperately needed medical attention.

I couldn't resist sharing these pics Joanne sent me, she is fostering these two adorable kittens we trapped at Leslie and Finch. The other two and the mom have eluded us, they disappeared after we rescued these two but are back now eating at their spot, if only they knew what a wonderful life could await them. Let's take bets as to how long after posting these boys will be adopted!
Happy Canada Day! It's a good country for cats, thankfully we have lots of resources and caring people here!
