Feral cats // kittens // whiskers, the whole bit

The people that live behind us didn't bother to get their cats fixed, so we have lots of cats and kittens in the neighborhood that are breeding and feral. One of the neighbors has taken it upon herself to catch as many cats or kittens as possible, get their shots and get them fixed. The vets that do take care of them, cut the ears of the cats, so you know which cats have been treated. It seems barbaric, but as all the cats look alike, it would be impossible to tell. I suppose it's a common practice. My daughter decided she wanted to help get the cats fixed (otherwise when they are caught be animal control, they will be euthenised).

Yesterday she caught a kitten, and (you guessed it) it's cute. REALLY cute. My daughter has decided to try and tame the kitten, which appears to be about 4 weeks old. I'll keep you updated. Oy.
