Full StoryMy friend moved into her new house about a year ago, with her family. It was her uncle's old house, and it was very big and very creepy.
But then they noticed something that wasn't creepy at all.
There, by the greenhouse area, were several pairs of stray cats--one was exceptional. Her name was now Blackie.
Now Blackie had just given birth to kittens about four months after the family moved in, and the kittens are about 4 months now. Anyway, there were 3 kittens (only one of them has a name, so far--"Piglet", the brave one) and they were all feral.
They lived under a stack of wood in my friend's greenhouse and soon after that, my friend started feeding them.
Water, the occasional wet food that her own cat got, a little blanket, a box, and some toys.
Awhile after that, my friend tried to catch all of them and take them to the SPCA. They only caught 2/3, but they couldn't catch Piglet.
They took them to the SPCA and the people there said, "We cannot take your cats into adoption--they are too wild. If we take them, they will be euthanized."
How's that for a no-kill shelter?
Anyway, they released the now traumatized kittens back into the yard, speechless, where all three kittens got stuck in a tree. All my friend could do was watch.
They did get down safely, and now it's the daily thing to go feed the kittens. In fact, they are warming up to my friend and let her come within 2 feet. Isn't that cool? Even Blackie isn't scared anymore.
They get flea powder, but are not spayed or neutered. They got food and water, but must have at least one more disease that cannot be treated. They get close to humans, but if the kittens are not tamed soon, they never will be.
They are black kittens with white bibs and paws and tails. The runt has no name, and usually stays away from Piglet and his brother.
Piglet is very adventurous, and my friend only named him.
His brother (or sister) has no name, and looks exactly like the others, only he, like Piglet, is big. He has no exceptional qualities.
My friend asked if I wanted one of the kittens when Tiggy died. Actually, she begged, and I said, "I can't take them until they're tame. Besides, Tiggy just got hit a few days ago." She hasn't asked me since.
Is there any other way to help the poor kittens? Can you think of any names?
There are three kittens that live in my friend's yard. They are not spayed or neutered. SPCA will not take them, and the family gives them food, water, shelter, toys, and attention, but they are still extrememly feral. They have just gotten flea medications. Piglet and his siblings are black and white. Do you have any name for them? Piglet is the oldest--the runt and the other brother need to find names--and homes.
