Mama's In The Kitchen: Cat Update


Mama cat is becoming a part of our morning routine. Before we eat breakfast, we feed her. Problem is, once we feed her, we have to tiptoe around the kitchen or else she bolts out the door. I want her to eat inside so that she gets more accustomed to us...for the day is almost here when we plan to capture her and her kitten.
She and Baby continue to nest in our neighbor's yard and I check on them a couple of times a day. Baby, now two and a half weeks old, is beginning to move around a bit more and is not constantly nestled next to Mama. I hope Baby does not move around too much as I hope to be able to capture him without a trap.
In the meantime, we are getting Mama used to the carrier. I placed her food in it today and she ventured inside to eat. Question is, will I be able to shut the door quickly enough? The plan is to trap her and have someone catch Baby immediately. We will take both to the vet for vaccines and Mama will be spayed. Then I will confine them to one room of my house and attempt to tame them...
Stay tuned...
