best mom!!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I have this feral cat who had a litter of kittens in my garage. They are now 5 wks old. Today, I saw them using the litter box all on their own. I am convinced she is the best mom ever!

now i just need to figure out how to convince her to get in a carrier so i can get her spayed. Good mom she may be, this is her last litter.

Oh, they are little geniuses! Are they tame?

I would advise using a trap in the garage to trap the Mom if she isn't easy to catch. The vet may be able to loan one to you.

we are working on the kittens. she has allowed us to handle them since they were born so they are overall pretty good. One is super friendly, and one is a little shy. But overall I think they will all be good pet cats. we are bringing them in the house and getting them used to tv sounds etc.
I will trap her if I have to. I hope I can just convince her to go in to the crate on her own (i already trapped her once, so I would hate to put her through that again!).

Can you pet her at all? I got mine to gradually get used to petting, then picking up, then carrying. After that, I was amazed that I put her in the carrier (which I had half-hidden in my car) but she was fine.

unfortunately, though mom is ok with us touching the kittens she is not so keen on us touching her. I might try and wait for a while after the kittens wean, and work on her, but i do not want to take a chance that she will escape and get "knocked up" again. In a week or so I will be making the appt to get her spayed, so I guess we will have to see where she is by that time.
