I'm fostering a mom and her 5 11-13 day old kittens for the Pat Brody Shelter for Cats. The mom seems semi-feral. Prior to her giving birth, an elderly woman was feeding her but the mom cat wouldn't come in the woman's home. One day the woman opened her door and the mom cat ran into the house and gave birth! The woman called the Pat Brody Shelter for Cats.
So far the Mom cat has allowed only one person to pet her from the shelter. If she continues to be anti-social they'll need to seperate the kittens from her.
I tried to put her food bowl within a few feet of her and she hissed and swatted at me.
I'm a software engineer and the rest of the time, I'm a poet, writer, volunteer, blogger, and playing on my iPhone. I currently have nearly 700 poems. I enjoy outdoor activities like inline skating, biking, skiing (especially cross country) and hiking.
I have 4 cats all of them are litter mates - found homeless, feral around 5 weeks old by a volunteer at a cat shelter.
