I knew it would not be long before someone told me about more kittens here! Yesterday I went over to a friend's apartment block, where her neighbour has taken in a tabby momcat and three kittens - a black girl and tabby and orange males, about three weeks old. They are currently in a basket on the staircase outside her door as her family have a dog and her father won't allow the cats in. But they all look healthy and the girl (around 20 I guess) is feeding mom, who was very protective of her kittens but allowed me to handle them. They were little lovebugs. But they cannot stay there and she says they will have to go on the street again when they are old enough. I asked if at least she will get them neutered and she said she would try to, so I offered my vet's number and said I would help with that if necessary. So now we have an impossible situation - as I know all too well, there is a 0% chance of findng future owners for these sweet babies, or for mama, and their lives on the Sarajevo street is to be condemned to stealing from litter boxes. I simply cannot take them, there is no humane society or shelter, City animal control puts down every animal brought to them, the same day. They don't even have cages. And I am sure that these are only the first of many that I will learn about this spring.
