A scared Feral cat is fed by two brothers, months later, she introduces them to her young babies
A scared feral cat was being fed by two brothers over the period of a few months, even though it was obvious that it didn’t want to be near them. But one day, she took her little ones to meet them. She was really frightened when they first found the feral cat, and she refused to eat anything when the men were present.
“She was undoubtedly wild when she first appeared. She wouldn’t approach anyone, wrote Reddit user ogreaper”
“But we fed her over a period of several months. She gradually grew more at ease among people. Then one day she gave the lads a visit with her kittens. We were aware that we had to free them..”
“We had been feeding her all winter long. Thus, she slowly softened up to us over time. She basically wouldn’t allow anyone to come within 20 feet of her.”
“She did hiss and almost attack a few of times as we rounded up the kittens.” It actually took a few hours to get the kittens.
“We had been feeding the mother for months before this happened so she was already comfortable with us,” the nurse said.
“The mother was harsh, but the kittens were gathered up rather soon. Once we put her in a box, but she pulled directly out. So when she eventually out from hiding once more, we treated her with the actual cat box. It was a difficult experience.”
Things started to change as soon as the mother cat and her kittens moved in to the house.

“When we first got them to the house we opened the box and they were too scared to come out. They just sat there.”
The brother helped the kittens in transferring from the box to their previous bedding. The furry animals started running and jumping all over the mattress very quickly. The animal family stayed in a room that they weren’t using and that just so happened to have a few old mattresses.
“We laid one on the floor and angled another one over top of it, kind of like a little mattress fort for them. We figured they would feel safer in a smaller space like this.”
They then started looking for potential homes for the cats, making sure they were all adopted and receiving the necessary medical attention. All of the kittens were quickly placed in new homes. Contacting a local TNR (trap-neuter-return) programme to put up traps is a great way for everyone to assist to the management of the feral population in a cat colony.
Spaying and neutering feral cats greatly aids in population control, allowing the kittens to enjoy the happy and healthy life they so richly deserve. Ogreaper said, “There was no way I could leave them out there.” The kitties are no longer concerned about finding a place to live and food.
