What to do when there’s a litter of cats in your backyard?
(Los Angeles, California, United States)
Hello! A few days ago I found a litter of cats hiding under my house and playing in the backyard. They are very cute and I want to somehow take them inside my house.
Up until now, I have been giving them water, a bit of meat, and a box for shelter. I have also seen the mother of the kittens walking around my neighborhood, but she hasn’t returned for a long time.
I know that mother cats are supposed to come back within three hours or so.
I have actually tried approaching them, but whenever I do, they end up running away and going back under the house. One of them actually hissed at me.
I don’t know if they are feral kittens or stray kittens. By their eye color, they are blue-ish. I have been monitoring them since I have found them, but they haven’t been crying for their mother or anything like that.
Someone please help me find a way to tame them and bring them in. Also, please recommend some products I should buy for them if I ever do.
