When we noticed a skinny cat staking out our bird feeder, we immediately started feeding her. She was so grateful that a week later she brought her two kittens along. Dismayed at the thought of two more cats living a feral life, we tried to catch them, but every time we got near they quickly hid inside an old drain pipe. After several failed attempts, we finally just hauled the entire piece of pipe into the house and dumped the kitties out in our guest bathroom. Boy, were they surprised! It took a few weeks of special loving care and lots of patience, but now they are happily integrated into our household and our two older cats have new friends to play with. Maybe someday we can catch their mom!
