North Brooklyn Cats offered us one of their spay spots at the clinic on Tuesday, so off we went Monday night to go get the rest of the family.
The resident cat greeted us and we headed out to the back yard.
This was one of the fastest trappings ever. All three were eating in the drop, but the little charmer walked out. I figured we'd get him later and pulled the string to get the other two. Sure enough, the little guy ran of scared, but was back within minutes heading straight for the owner of the house for some cuddles. Sarah simply placed him in a carrier and we were on our way. Mama will be spayed today, Tuesday, the kittens will have to wait.
Here they are, ready to be reunited with their little sister.
This is the charmer.
This one is a little shy,
These guys are much bigger than we had anticipated, this kitten weighing in at 2.9 lbs! The other black one was 2.8 and the little girl was only 2.1.
She was happy to see her litter mates. The two shy ones hung out in the back, and the charmer was front and center.
I hear we may have some foster/adoptive homes lined up. These two will need some socialization. Wish them luck!
Thanks to everyone involved: The residents of the house for caring for these guys and allowing us to bring a shelter for mama so she can remain there and keep warm, the construction crew for feeding, reaching out to Sarah and networking for placement of the kittens, Sarah for coordinating, connecting everyone and transport, Lisa, of North Brooklyn Cats, for offering us a spot at the clinic and recovering mama, and the foster/adoptive homes who stepped up to help these kittens. I love when communities work together like this. Sometimes we each only have a small part to offer, but when everyone pitches in and all the parts come together, we succeed. Nice job guys.
Excellent example of how anyone can do TNR.
