Need Advice ASAP, Moving the Strays SOON
Well, it's been another week and no one has expressed any interest in adopting the stray kittens. They are another week old, so I'm guessing they are 7-8 weeks now.
I know that they are going to be very difficult to socialize beginning NOW. And I don't have the time, space, or finances to devote to socializing them, myself.
Do you all think it would be better to take the kittens to the shelter after I've taken them to the vet to get their shots and tests and everything? OR, should I just take them with the mom to my friend's parents' house...they have a colony of ferals that they feed. I mean, if they aren't going to be able to be socialized, I'm worried that if I send them to the vet and the new owners don't have the patience they need, they'll just end up back at the shelter and possibly put down.
One of the neighbours dogs scared them all yesterday by coming over into our yard and chasing after them. Then today, I saw the kittens at the FRONT of the house (they are usually out back in their bushes). So, they are getting more brave and wandering more. Time is running out, I fear.
I can't carry this responsibility any longer. And time is almost here that Jim and I will start packing up to move. What do you all think between choices above?? Thanks~
