Trapped 3 kittens!

Out of NO WHERE, 4 kittens appeared yesterday.
I manged to trap 3 out of 4 of them.
The 3 are all tiger stripped, and the 4th one is all black with a white tip on its tail.

They were treated for fleas, and worms, and got an FIV test as well.
The vet thinks they are 3 months old at least.

Do you think I will have a problem socializing them since they're 3 months old?
I'm mainly worried about that.

What do you guys think?

That's wonderful! Good for you for rescuing these little ones! 3 month old kittens are perfectly socializeable. Older kittens do often take a little longer to socialize, but most 3 month old kittens will start to come around a bit within a couple of weeks. If it were me, then yes, I would take them in and socialize them, though, I admittedly have resources at my disposal that aren't available to everyone. Are you still attempting to trap the 4th kitten?

Proud people-mommy of Galileo, Dante, Cosette, Autumn,
Ramona & Choco-cat (and foster kitty, Poe).

Awwwwwww kittens....post pictures...please!!

I don't think it will be hard ti socialize them. They are still young enough...but I'm surely no expert. It would be great if you could catch the 4th one

Yes, I am attempting to catch the 4th one.
It doesn't come around a lot, but when its hungry, hopefully it will make its way into the trap and grab the food in there.

I will post pictures now, one moment!

I think they may be socialized. I would certainly try it. I would try to get the last one as well. Best case, they will socialize but even if they do not, TNR would be wonderful.

Was there any sign of a mother around? Or do you think someone dumped them in your area to get rid of them?
I know who the mother is, she is a stray we havent spayed yet.
