What to do with mom and four beautiful kittens?
About a year and half ago, I felt obligated to feed a tiny calico kitten that started following around a stray male cat that I had been taking care of for years.
It is as if my male cat had adopted her.
Tragically, my male stray was multilated on June 9 2012, and I was left to feed the calico, although I never bonded with her, and she was not people friendly.
She is an average looking cat, but she managed to give birth to four beautiful fluffy furballs that I estimate to be about six weeks old, and they now hang out upstairs outside my apartment.
I am not allowed pets, and my apartment is tiny, so I cannot technically adopt them, and I could not afford to feed five cats regardless.
Last week, I spoke to a local pet store owner who was willing to take two kittens, but this was before I discovered that there were four.
These kittens are so beautiful that it should be easy to find homes for them, but I do not know how to go about it.
I also would feel guilty taking them away from mom, so I would like to know the emotional affect taking away her youngsters would have on her. I might not have a choice, however.
Mom is no longer afraid of me, and no longer struggles when I pick her up to pet her, but she is definitely not a people lover, nor is she nearly as beautiful as her offspring. I therefore will continue to care for mom
I live about 20 miles East of Los Angeles.
If anyone can suggest how to find a home for them, please offer suggestions.
