I've been feeding the neighborhood cats. I don't know how many there are, but there are only 5 that I see daily. They are feral, and we can't get within 20 feet of them or they bolt back into the abandoned house that they appear to live in. Nobody wants to take these cats to a shelter as there aren't any no-kills around and they'll surely be euthanized. I found a place about 30 minutes from here that will do speutering for $20, and while I don't have $100 right now, I think 2 neighbors will pitch in. I was going to call the Michigan Humane Society to see about borrowing live traps. My question is mostly about what you would do about kittens. It appears as though at least one is pregnant. She's not really wide, but her belly is low. If any are pregnant, should they be aborted? I live in a one bedroom apartment with 2 cats already, so I couldn't keep a feral cat in my house and I wouldn't want her having them outside either. I was also planning to get DH and go breaking into that house their living in to look for any kittens. What if I find some? Should I take them from their mom? I just don't know what to do.
