Animals have a 6th sense about people and know where to go for love and help. We are on our second "set" of kittens, but this time, we can't get near them at all. They run every time. They are jut as pretty as the rist set and momma had enough trust in us this time to have them here, not bring them here after they were a couple months old. We can't afford much like you, but I did order those warming mats for them since winter is coming and next Clixsense check will go for a warming pad for the water bowl. They have made their home under our porch and also in the really gigantic dog carrier on the porch.
The last litter was socialized and I found homes for all but 2. One we kept and was spayd and the other was scheduled for neutering when he ran away, never to be seen again. When I get these bandits "caught' they will also get the pay/neuter treatment. Momma will be first. This time she's very loving and we can pet and she even sneaks in the house when i go to feed the "kids." My avatar is the kitten we kept from last litter that also ran away after she got sick and "lost her mind." She tried to bite us so we put her outside. I thinkk she had distempeter.
