Re: Kitten Advice, please


The gal at the humane society suggested that the little guy might be too
small to trigger the trap. I may give it a try, though it's a 30 mile drive to get there to borrow one.

Can you get a live trap? Maybe borrowed from the vet or an animal shelter?
Around here the feed stores also sell them. Put in the tuna, kitty walks
in,
trap closes - then you can bring it in where it's safe.

Subject: [CHAT] Kitten Advice, please

A kitten was at my doorstep at 6:30 this morning. I've spent hours trying
to

get to know it, leaving several servings of tuna in a dish for it so that
it

can eat (obviously very hungry and meowing), and haven't been able to get
close enough to catch it. I picked up some cat food on my way home from
physical therapy this afternoon and will try that. The kitten has gobbled
everything I've given it as soon as I left the area.

My latest encounter led to the kit being terrified by Henrietta II (Rhode
Island Red Chicken) who came running to mama to see what goodies were
going
to come her way.

I'm exhausted and the kit is so very small, and there are lots of big
storms

coming. I'd like to get the poor little one into a dry and safe spot.

I also have two dogs that don't know diddly about cats except to chase
feral

cats out of the yard - that habit courtesy of an adoptee.  I don't know
whether they haven't noticed the kit, or whether it still has that baby
smell that seems to give kits and pups immunity.

Help, please.
