The feral family living in the woods behind us disappeared again. We've rescued two of them (Lazlo and Sheldon), and boy we love them! (We're keeping them!). But the Vet FINALLY found the humane trap, and we brought it home - and the rest of the family hasn't been here since! We found a home for two of the three kitties left, and we checked with the local no-kill shelter and they do accept ferals - and usually have no problem finding homes for kittens, feral or not. We even made arrangements with them to notify us if the one kitty doesn't get adopted within a week. We made arrangements with the Vet to get feral mommy spayed and we planned to re-release her after five days of healing - and they've disappeared again! They've been coming and going for "extended" periods of time (we rescued Laz because the first time they left without all of them we didn't know they'd come back - but they were only gone three days). Now they've been gone five days - and I just don't get it, because they're always starving when they "come home." Please send hopeful thoughts their way - won't it be better for everyone if we can execute our plan? I need them to come back - I'm going nuts!
