Advice for Shiva? (pregnant/nursing feral queen)
I have recently begun to plan out TNR for my colony, but Before I focus on that, there is a young queen in my colony who is either very pregnant or has just birthed her litter. I want to trap her and have her raise the kits in my apartment so they can be socialized and adopted out. Shiva herself needs a spay, earmark, and release. If she has had the kittens by the time I can get my hands on a trap(Grr why are they hard to find and expensive when found in my area?? Any suggestions where to get one for cheap?) how do I go about finding them? Just by listening for their mewing?
Which would be better, catching her before or after she has them?
I'm sorry. I have read the stickies on here, as well as reading elsewhere on the web, I am just new to the whole Feral thing, and any advice would be awesome.
