Honey and Noodle appeared at the compost pile with their brother Mr. Broadnose. They were probably about three months old. I called the animal shelter as we live between two busy highways and was told they were not accepting any more kittens. They were at capacity. Our town has a program to reimburse if a cat is trapped, neutered and released and the lady at the shelter assured me they might have a shorter life but it would be a happier life. We trapped the three kittens, had them neutered (found out all were male), vaccinated against rabies and after the required three days indoors set them free. One month later Mr. Broadnose disappeared and we decided to bring the newly named Honey and Noodle inside. They are now the office cats.
