This past weekend my fiancÃ© and I decided to see if there were any feral cats in the area. We put some smelly wet food out turned off the outside light and hid in the pool. Sure enough about 20 minutes later a cat jumps the fence. It was an orange tabby as far as I could tell from the moon light. After a bit my fiancÃ© sneezed and he took off really quick so I know he is skittish of humans. We waited a bit longer and another dark tabby moved in. She let us get pretty close to her and even walked toward us to get a drink. I believe she was female because I heard the faint sound of kittens calling from behind the neighborâ€™s garage and she took off. I believe with a little coaxing we could trap her but I wouldnâ€™t want to take her without the kittens as they sounded very youngâ€¦maybe even too young to walk. Our neighbors arenâ€™t exactly on a talking basis with us and we have a 6ft tall wood fence. Should we wait a few weeks until we see the babies walking to try and trap them then? Any advice?
