View Full Version : Need help in NYC trapping a mom and her three kittens

Dear cats lovers,

I am trying to help stray cats around my building in Harlem.

I discovered a young cat mom 10 days ago. She gave birth under the
stairs of the garbage area of our building. It is a covered area, but
the ceiling leaks and it is quite cold.

The next morning, one little kitten was dead. It was in a freezing
night.
I'm trying to construct a shelter with boxes the best I can. I also
bought insulation/warming pad. But my means are limited.- I have to
deal with my 3 cats, 2 of them having health issues (cancer and
allergies).

I rescue cats from time to time, when they are friendly.
She is feral. So I would like to have her spayed and released. But the
kitten could be placed for adoption.
They are probably too young to be separated from the mom. I estimate
them 5 to 6 weeks old. They are already eating the food I put out.
So the best would be to have them in a foster place with the mom
first.

I am emotionnaly under pressure with my cats health problems and
thinking of these little being ouside in the cold stresses me a lot.
That's why I am trying to find some help to rescue them.

We would need a trap and people who know what would be the best way to
do this.

I really hope someone will be able to help me, her and the little
ones!

Thanks!

Patricia

There are many, many rescue groups in NYC--one nearby might be
building on Audubon Terrace (155 St. and Broadway) and the George Washington
Bridge.

They are not too young to be separated from Mom. In fact the sooner the
better at this point from a socializing standpoint. They are probably weaned
or mostly so by now so I'd go for it.

Dear friends,

I am very relieved to announce that with the help of a local rescue
group -StrayFromTheHeights- we were able to get the three kittens and
later to trap successfully the mom.

They are now recovering from these very hard last weeks in a warm and
loving foster
home.

And apparently, the mother seems 'quite' friendly an trusting enough
to let Cathy, the co-rescuer and foster mom taking care of her little
ones.

I would like to thank here from all my hart every one who supported me
with this rescue.
I have been extremly stressed and all your supporting words and
assistance have made the difference and allowed this action to be
successful!

Patricia
