Kitten/Cat Update

I wish I could report that we have caught everyone, but we're still working on it. This morning I'm meeting a representative of the Animal Defense League of Arizona to get a cat-trap and packet of information about trapping moms with kittens.
The problem is you can catch one or the other, but usually not both. So, if you catch the Momma, you better know where the kittens are or you risk losing them. If you catch the kittens, then Momma runs off and you've missed the chance there.
It seems the idea is to catch the Momma with food in the trap (after finding where she's hiding the kittens), then go after the little ones.
The ADLAz will also be giving me a voucher to have Momma spayed and everyone gets tested for disease and shots when they're due - free. That takes a load off my mind!

So, please Everyone...please say a prayer and keep positive vibes headed this way. I need all the help I can get to make sure no kitten gets left behind. I'm also trying to get everyone before we have snow on Friday. Let's hope there's a few angels around to lend a hand - or paw.

Wow, what a great resource! I wouldn't have even known to look for such an organization.

BTW, looks like I may get in BSG after all! I will have to put all my sheep in one pen, as there is only one left in the Shetland barn. Just when I was getting used to the idea of just driving down for Friday and seeing everyone while watching the show....
