Thread: Kittens Kittens & More Kittens

  1. #1

    Default Kittens Kittens & More Kittens

    I bought a house a little over a year ago & we back on to 1 creek & have another just infront of us as well & surronded by little hobby farms & I have been inindated with cats & kittens.
    This year I caught the wild kittens very young & have tamed them so they could maybe get homes & also have 2 litters from a neighbour who moved & left 2 pregnant cats.
    I have now traped most of the wild mothers & am paying myself to desex the other 2 as they are stunning long haired girls but I need homes for the kittens I have left.
    I have everything fron short to long haired & blue to tabby in colours. I have taken pics & later to day after I get back from dog walking I will put them up.
    We are located near Tamworth in NSW but travel to Sydney reg.
    Any help much apprecated..............

    Hello CD.

    I will see if any of my contacts can help, but no promises.

    Re the parents......

    Just curious, is it possible to get the cats scanned for chips?
    If they are chipped, then the owner on the register is still responsible for them.

    I understand they may not care anymore, but just a headsup for u.

    I have had cats brought in tagged as wild or feral simply because they were caught in a trap. Naturally they were anxious & time was often needed to let them settle before scanning. It was a real buzz when a chip was located & the owner informed.

    Thanks any help is so greatly apprecated.
    I did scan any of the cats traped & sent to the pound but no chips........
    The guy we bought the house off had cancer & was going on a road trip & said he couldn't take his cat but that she was desexed & lived outside mostly.
    Well when we moved in there was a kitty litter(used) tray in our lounge room......
    I feel sorry foe the cat as she now lives on the outskirts of our yard(dogs don't like her) & i feed her but she also would love a inside home.
    She is very loving but for some reason my cats & dogs just hate her..........
    The other kittens from the neighbour who moved are part ragdoll their mums where from a ragdoll breeder who had an opps litter with a stray. I am going to desex them both & keep the blue/grey 1 myself & the other is a white based tortie with distint ginger & blue/grey patches very unusual & striking looking cat.
    The feral kittens are going to be big cats I think & really need farm homes as they are still not sit on your lap & purr type cats.

    Pity they won't let her inside, sounds like a nice cat.
    Must be some way they'll eventuallly accept her.

    Perhaps crate the rest and let her in till they settle

    Anyways, good luck.

    I don't agree that the ferals will not make good pets.
    I caught a feral kitten with a net from a litter under a farmer mate's house.
    My son, then aged about 10 and with oven mitts, newspaper for scratch proofing on his chest held that kitten for many hours. He became a HUGE black cuddly house cat. The most wonderful natured cat that we ever had.

    I put out food and waited up the steps with the net. I had my eye on a lovely long coated one but Jade was the only one I could catch, lol.

    Thanks that gives me hope. I have homed 6 of the 12 ferel kittens & 4 did go to inside homes but 2 came back because they where literly climbing the walls & tearing curtains etc. Those 2 are now happy hay shed cats at a freinds farm, lol.

    I have a pack of 8 sometimes 9(when sister is at UNI) & they seem racist against black cats, no joke.
    The neighbours 2 just moved on it bold as brass & the dogs did give them alittle curry to start with but very soon they became apart of our pack like my 3 cats. The blue/grey cat is now Pearl's(top TM bitch)sleeping buddy & it's not unusual to see her & the dog in the kennel together.
    But when it comes to the black cat they seriously want to do her harm. I did have her inside & they would ignore her around me but as soon as they thought they'd get away with it they'd target her.
    It really is weird as I do quite abit of rehoming so my dogs are used to exsepting newcomers but they just wont have a bar of this particular cat.

    Oh gee, thank you for your kind offer lol.
    I still have 2 and one is long haired. I bought her for $50,000.







    Well, ok, a holiday house in a very small Victorian town was thrown in free.

    The previous owner said she would be back to get her and didn't.
    I relocated Smokie, aka the bitch to the farm here with us about 10 years ago.
