Can you catch the momma cat too? That’s what I would try. But I definitely wouldn’t let them back out. They’ll just breed and make more strays.

They’re precious! I’d bring them to the shelter…

hmmm…. I would take them to the shelter WITH their mama, if possible.  If you speak to the shelter, they can give you a trap for stray cats.  I only say this because I’m not sure how old they are and they might not be ready to be completely weaned yet.

 

If you can’t get the mama, then I would still take them to the shelter.  We have strays in our neighborhood too and I tried so hard to catch them when they were babies… no such luck.

I would try to catch the momma cat too, they are better off being with their mom if you can, but it’s better for them if they are adopted into good homes rather than being strays and making more strays.

Their eyes are open and they are eating food, so they are actually at an age that they can be away from their mother. From the look of them I think they are 6-8 weeks old. I think it’s time they found homes. They are much better off in homes than being turned back outside, IMO. They are so cute! The little buff tabby looks just like my Odie when he was a kitten.

btw, I noticed you had some cat food in there for them, but they are still much to young to be completely off formula, so I would go to the pet store and pick up some formula for them.

What state do you live in? Local shelters can let you borrow traps to catch the momma cat

I agree all the way that the shelter would be safer and a better option for those precious babies! Kittens get adopted fast, so I’m sure they will find great homes quickly. Letting them loose will just repeat the same cycle of unwanted stray kittens. I agree that catching the mama cat to take her to a shelter is a good idea, but if she’s not socialized, that may prove to be very difficult! But at least get those babies to a shelter – they will be able to properly care for them and give them the vet care they need! They’re sooooo sweeet!

They look big enough to be away from mama cat. The shelter should be able to find them good homes. They will have a better life that way.

No no no, don’t give them back to the mom! Their eyes are open and they are eating kitten food. With them having human contact they have a chance at being pets in a loving home. Outdoors they would become feral strays. 

We have taken in so many kittens over the years and had strays trapped/spayed or neutered and released. Definitely check with the local shelter and see if they’ll trap & spay the mom. 🙂
