Mother cat update


Mother cat behind bike

This is the cat that Rebecca and I saw last week. On Friday evening, a woman called to say she had gotten our note and that the mother cat had disappeared and one of the kittens was dead. One of the volunteers and I were planning to go down and pick up the kittens but we were also worried the mother cat might come back. The presence of a dead kitten was bad news though.

I called the woman back and she said that she would get her mother to check as her mother was the one who lived in the block. She called back to say the mother cat had come back and the kitten was not dead - just stuck in the bicycle spokes. I rang a volunteer who lives in the next block and he freed the kitten.

Another woman just rang as she had seen the mother and the kittens. She doesn't know who is feeding the cats either though. She didn't mind them being there but was just wondering why they were there.

Thanks to all and the volunteer who helps to free the trapped kitten.
Glad that all is well for now.
Hope someone will monitor their welfare as it is possible any of the kittens can be trap at the bicycle wheel again.

After reading the line "...the kitten is dead"... my heart dropped... but in the end am glad all is well, mother and kinds...

I know all I can do is post here "and talk talk", but think this case is slightly special because the whole "family" is living in a rather peculiar environment... think they really need to be re-home...

Cheers
