I was just curious when is an ideal time to seperate feral/wild/barn kittens from their mother so begin to socalize them? I know with house cats it is 10-12 weeks, but in that time, feral kittens will already have learned to fear people and other unfriendly behavior from their mother. I left my uncle a cat carrier and I am going to tell him that when his barn kittens are _?_ weeks old, to put them into a carrier and call me. He will not let me spay and neuter his cats. I have tried and tried, I have even lied and told him I had a couple FREE spay and neuter appointments and he still wouldn't let me do it, they are wild barn cats and have been for years. I may possibly end up fixing them and then trying to give them back, but I don't know yet if he will accept them back. He usually drowns the kittens he doesn't want when they are born... sorry to disturb some of you guys there, I have tried to convince him but he won't budge (yet??) I am still trying...all I can do right now is help the kittens who are born.
