Re: Rescued 3 Feral/Stray Kittens
Ah, that's good. Should I pick them up when they're antsy? I was told by the vet to 'handle' them regularly to tame them. Though I am uncertain if that means literally 'handling' them. They squirm at first touch, but usually relax once in my hands (gloved). Though sometimes they still squirm when I hold them. I try not to be forceful however meaning if they squirm too much I put them back into the cage.
As for TNR, it's not that I am against it so much that I am against irresponsible owners. I've seen, at least locally, it's hard to keep the population stable when people keep dropping off their animals thinking they'll be happy with other cats. Which is what we think happened in the case of this new cat- she just showed up at my grandmother's house pregnant (sigh).
