Hello, an elderly neighbor just knocked on my door to ask me for help (he knows I'm a cat lover). Anyway, he's taking care of a colony of cats and kittens and wants to find them homes if at all possible! There are 10 kittens (five still nursing) and 3 adults (2 females and one male) -- none are fixed. They are not his cats, he's just been putting food out because he saw them around the neighborhood. Now, they are mostly hanging out in his backyard, though they wander the neighborhood as well. Do you have any recommendations for me to help him? Trap them all? Start with getting them fixed? Capture the kittens first and take them to rescue societies? I have also emailed somebody at the Feral Cat Foundation, but I know there are so many knowledgable people here on the Cat Site too! Thanks in advance for your advice.
