Upset about a lost kitty

While exiting off the freeway this evening there was a kitty that was on the exit ramp who then ran into the trees between the circular exit ramp and freeway - blocked in by roads all around. (No, I slowed in time and didn't hit the kitty)

I went in and called for 1/2 but the kitty never showed his/her face.

I don't know what to do. I can't imagine he has a home as he was in an unusual spot.
I really adore cats and I find this most upsetting.

If I trap him and he's feral, where will he live - he can't live there.

Aw, poor baby kitten! I feel your pain.

I went back there today but didn't see any sign of the kitty. I'm hopeful that maybe, just maybe, the kitty belongs to the house I noticed across the street.
Really relieved that I didn't hit the kitty.

My four babies (in my avatar and on my blog home page) were actually all feral kittens found outside by some wonderful caring volunteer!

I hope you're enjoying Shadows of the Wind!

That does sound upsetting. I once tried to befriend a feral kitten outside my home when I was a teen. It turns out it was a Florida Wildcat kitten. Very feral and absolutely uninterested in my "help."

Lisa said...

Oh my - a wildcat kitten- did it look the same as a domestic?

Tia Nevitt said...

Yes--as I recall, it looked like a reddish tabby.


shhhh, don't tell hubby but i have three feral cats living under my new sunporch, i threw blankets under there & feed them everyday :) i never met a cat i didn't like. i have three indoor ones, so there's no room for anymore :(

Italian Peasant, it's good that you are feeding the kitties. If they're feral, then they wouldn't be open to coming in your house.
Please consider having them neutered/spayed. Let me know if you need donations to help cover the expense.

bless you're heart!
I have 5 kitties myself. 4 of them (in my avatar) are all litter mates and were actually rescued ferals around 5 weeks old - they would have died had they not been found as they were all sick when they were found - poor babies!
