Feral Kitten living between access road and interstate
Recently I spotted a youngish (<6 mo estimated) kitten that lives/hangs out somewhere between an interstate highway and the access road, on a long patch of grass. I'm guessing she lives somewhere in the drainage pipes.
I've already booked an appointment to get her speutered and get rabies with the Humane Society.
My question being, she lives in a wildly dangerous area. How bad is it to relocate her? She knows how to avoid traffic, I thought maybe she would come to me one time and stupidly tried to catch her (Realized my mistake rather quickly). She's obviously survived this long, but should I relocate her or let her go back to where she lives now?
Also, what happens if I trap her and shes not feral and just stray? Will I see a difference?
I'm reading up on how to trap them now, etc. I should start feeding her regularly now, right? With a pungent food like tuna or wet food. The only thing I get afraid of is that ants will eat it, or something. Plus, it's close to my work and not my house.
