A Little More Camp
I do have a bit of a non knitting related issue and I'm hoping that the hive mind of the blog will be able to help. One of my neighbors has some outside cats that showed up a while back, hungry and cold, so she helped them out. I've been helping her try to catch them, to get them fixed (she doesn't have a problem with them living there, but doesn't want to be overrun with cats). We tried humane traps and while the female went in it once, she wasn't heavy enough to trip it. They did have a batch of kittens, but the kittens are old enough now to separate from their parents (dad has stuck around and been a good kitty daddy), so we're trying to catch them again. The male will let us pick him up, but he doesn't want to go into a crate to go to the vet (big surprise there). The female is much more shy and I don't have a clue how we'll catch the kittens. Have any of you done this? We don't want to turn them over to animal control because she doesn't mind them staying in her yard, she'll feed them and water them and the yard is safe for them, but for their health, they need to be fixed. Any ideas?
