|The one with the teeth|
It was so loud I was sure our neighbors would come out to complain.
We could hear one of the kittens getting farther and farther down the road with his cries. Another sounded like it was across the road. As we went searching and unintentionally made noise with our big clumsy feet, they would become deathly quiet. At one point, when we returned, we found one had made it to our yard, maybe because he was attracted to the mewing of his sibling in the carrier, and he had gone up under my car, somewhere in the engine or wheel well.
|Kitten #2 was under here somewhere|
We got food and a trap and pulled the crated sibling up close to the car. We sat for ages. Finally, how, we don't know, the sibling disappeared and we could then hear him at the maisonettes next door. We have been trying to capture him/her ever since. He is now the only one we can hear aside from our biting fighter in the crate.
|We sat for ages|
Tonight, we were creeping around the maisonettes with a flashlight totally trespassing, and we saw the sibling, and got it to eat some food, but we could not catch it. It has wedged itself between two wooden fences. Our best bet now is to gain its trust with food and keep going back hoping it will come to us.
Nik thinks he knows who the mother might have been. He has not seen her since yesterday morning. She lived around the maisonettes. Obviously something has happened to her, or she would be with her young kittens and they wouldn't have scattered like this. I believe he has a picture of her, but right now he is getting some much needed sleep.
As we sat outside last night with Sylvia and Amber, we had a visit from Sundance. Today we had a visit from Big Van.
|Sylvia kept us company last night and has been following us to the maisonettes|
Right now I will leave you with more pictures of the kitten from yesterday. We are able to handle him now. A day with our vets, George and Christina, seems to have done the trick, as he was handled all day. Now he is rather docile and cries whenever we leave the side of his carrier.
