I am helping my human with some TNR! It started a few weeks ago, when I saw some kittens playing out on my patio. Of course, I was very excited about this, which got my human’s attention. And she saw them too — and the mom. So she put some food out and hunted around for a rescue to help her with TNR. But by the time she found someone, the little family had vanished.
It took them a couple of weeks, but they started showing up again, so my human began putting out food at their preferred time, which is just after dusk. And she got back in touch with the rescue human, who lives in our neighborhood, and they started getting to work. I am helping by letting my human know that I’ve seen them. Often I do before she does.
It’s a slow process because they are not friendly, but you can see how it’s going in this short video.
It turned out that they are getting breakfast from our neighbor just to the north of us, and she is hoping to coax the mom inside. The kittens are very shy and may be past the age for easy socialization, which is fine. They are welcome to stay here once they’ve been spayed and neutered. And now that the dad has started coming around, my human is really determined to snag him. He’s very wild, but it’s important that he get TNR’d.
We’ll let you know when there’s more progress!
