I am new to the feral cat world. There are, I believe, two feral kitties at my workplace. I was only vaguely aware of them before November. They were kittens last summer, we believe they were dumped nearby. I never saw them for quite a while. Others where I work began feeding them in Sept. The cats became a little bolder and showed themselves a little more, especially when someone 'forgot' to feed them. I donated food to one of the people feeding them, then realized that there was no organization or regularity to the feeding, and that poor quality food and no water was being provided. With winter setting in, I decided to become more involved. I checked every am to be sure the cats had been provided for, started feeding on weekends and holidays, and provide most of the food. After some disturbing comments by management at the facility, I looked into seeing if anyone would come take the cats and 'rehab' them, and found that a rescue was not available, that the best I can do for the kitties is to trap, neuter, and return. I found our local organization that coordinates this and I now have 2 traps and a date with our ferals this weekend. I guess I need a little encouragement that this is a do-able task. I am feeling a little nervous about this, and a little down as others at work have backed off of caring for the cats because management has been negative about them. Thanks for any help.
