    I found a black kitten with no mama or siblings when she was 3 weeks old. She hated milk with a passion and prefered solid food but not kitten, she would only eat solid 1 year plus food, we tried so many times to feed her soft kitten food but it didnt work, so she ate adult food, she is now 1 year old 3 days ago and is a very happy healthy kitty

    Why didn’t you let mama cat take care of her babies for a little longer.... it’s so sad to separate them like that.

  • Miranda Marsden

    So sorry to have to say this, but I wholeheartedly agree with all of the other comments unhappy with this video. You have torn kittens away from their mother far too young, meaning they may well struggle as they grow. Their mother teaches them so many valuable lessons at their age: basically 'how to cat'. What worries me even more is the poor queen. I worked with feral cats for decades and she could have easily learned to trust humans and become a 'normal' cat with love, time, and patience. Instead, you have have ripped her away from her babies, terrified her, caused her pain, and then dumped her back on the street again to fend for herself. That's NOT rescue. Her life will be far too short (as it is with most feral's) and you have guaranteed she will never trust another human again, so has no hope of anyone else being able to save her.

    What happened to the mom cat????????? If they left her because she was Ferrel, that's just wrong. I don't believe in Ferrel cats. I have personally seen many "wild" cats that were taken in and became just fine house cats.

    Why would you tell the mother cat back out there to have more babies that you might not find in time or no one else either that mother cat deeded help those babies is the sign that says help me you put a Band-Aid where it needed real surgery to prevent her from having kittens that will suffer if you want to be a rescuer you should do it right

    Feral cats can be tamed. Keep them in the house, feed them, be quiet around them, never try to touch them and eventually they will trust you and tame themselves.

    The emotional trauma for the momma cat and kittens. Momma feels like her babies were stolen. I've seen other rescue channels rescue BOTH a feral momma cat & new borns and let momma cat take care of her babies in this crucial time. So sad.

    Isn't it interesting how beautiful kittens are. Then they grow up, develop an adult knowledge and personality, and are even more beautiful as adult cats. BTW, I have successfully caught and adopted adult feral cats. They are not the same as if they had never been feral, but they adjusted well. In my very small town (a village really) there are too many people with guns and nothing productive to do with their time. Not to mention having no respect for cats.

    why would you release a feral cat!! people are doing their best to get rid of feral because of what they do to the native wildlife I know it sounds harsh but it would have been better either taming her or putting her down, I just found this video so disappointing You have just released a cat back into the streets to cause more trouble and she will be back in danger!! there are do many people that don't like cats in their yards so will do anything to harm them

    These two women were not of the caliber the public has come to expect from Hope for Paws staff. As much as the public appreciates the cats' being spared the harsh life of ferals, I, for one feel the process of trapping of mother cat could/ should have been handled in a quieter, more thoughtful manner, I,e., sans the noisy chatter and laughter with immediate covering of trap and placement in vehicle, followed by the quiet, gentle picking up of each kitten by nape of neck and placement in pet carrier or covered trap placed next to mother cat's trap for reassuring of the latter as to their safety. Unless their being absolutely no foster care available, the kittens should have been allowed to remain with the mother. The vet'staff would have known the easiest way to defea/ de- worm and vaccinate the mom with minimum bother and risk to all. Had there been no option to immediate spaying, the keeping of mother cat in large cage with small carrier inside for sleeping along with small litter pan should have worked quite well. The usual anti-inflammatory/ analgesic could be placed in food each day. Should complication arise, a simple closing of carrier door (with further fastening of door to prevent iits inadvertent opening) for transport of cat to vet would work quite well. Each kitten could have been quietly, gently bathed, dried and fed with bottle before being placed in carrier which would have then been placed next to mother cat's cagehe allowing of mother cat' s witnessing each kitten's being quietly and gently bathed before placing in a carry all within the sa Furthermore each kitten feral cats in general, as too. Further, assuming, quite wrongly the morher cat's feral mentality to be permanent did her a the cage at lw separating 4 wk, old kittens from their mother unnecessarily is heartbreaking. Secondly, assuming the mother cat's

      Dear Hope for Paws and public: Sorry for the confusion of just prior text. I was in process of both writing and editing the text up to the sentence ending in "quite well" when I inadvertently hit transmit button. I'm sure you all can sympathize. Following the sentence ending in "quite well", I would have stated that per years of working with feral cats, I've learned that inability to socialize the rescued feral cat being a rarity, hence, misperception, particularly regarding the nursing mother cat with high estrogen level predisposing her to a more tolerant disposition when in a non-threatening environment. Hence, in view of that, along with the mother cat's probably being hardly more than 6 mos- 1 year of age, sufficient socialization for re-evaluation would, in all likelihood, have transpired within a week or so, certainly by the time of the kittens' reaching 8 weeks of age. Had I been able to finish editing I would have stated that had immediate spaying of mother cat been unavoidable, the placing of the havahart trap containing her next to the carrier with the washed/fed/dried kittens, at least during the the mom's 48 hour post-op period, would have been, although not perfect, a more humane option. With the mother cat's post-op abdominal discomfort, commencing of drop in estrogen level and cessation of milk production, subsequent separation from kittens would have been far more easily tolerated. However, since fostering of kittens would have been required for approximately 4 weeks, there would have been ample opportunity to re-assess mother cat's progress with socialization, hence, her hopeful qualifying for adoption as well. Finally, I couldn't help but feel, from watching the video of this particular trapping, that the volunteers were young and, whether because of their youth or because of insufficient training, were, unfortunately, of rather cocky attitude. As a result, their handling of both the trapping of mother cat and handling of kittens having been, however unintended, a bit callous and non- productive. Hopefully, however, my critique will not be misinterpreted as a lack of appreciation for the otherwise fine work heretofore observed as being performed by Hope For Paws. Its services on behalf of those without voice being sorely needed and I, for one, as animal lover and longtime rescuer, being most grateful. Sincerely, Vic

    Just going by my own experience... ripping those kittens away before 12 weeks (8 absolutely) was bad. I'm not sure why fix the mom and then release her? I've had two "feral" cats - I have one now. Henry. He's indoors and has been since I brought him home 2 years ago. We put a harness on him when we're gardening and while it took a bit for him to understand he couldn't be outdoors any more - he has come around.

    I'm sad you didn't give the mother a chance. Oh well, other people have discussed it at length in the comments already. I don't know the procedure, so I won't have an opinion before I can research it.

  • j9andphoenix

    I have to agree with the comments for the most part about the mum -My sister has two cats - one is the previously feral little girl and one is one of her children - she is very wary of people but has a safe home with love and good food and does not have to worry about where to find food, or possibly just hit by a car. Ferals take time but it can work. And even the spaying can settle them a bit.

    I love watching your rescues-however WHY, don't you drape a towel across the trap after trapping the cat? It helps to calm them down-helps them stop banging themselves against the trap. Just an FYI since I am a TNR volunteer.

  • Loretta Perrone
    Loretta Perrone

    Very upsetting to watch the way the mom was treated. First of all anyone that works with stray or feral cats knows that you cover the trap immediately after any cat is caught! I have worked with feral cats for 25 years and this is disgusting to watch! Also I have let the mother stay with her babies until the kittens were 3 months old. I use a huge dog crate to contain the mom while she continues to nurse! Abruptly taking her babies from her is inhumane! FYI...several times it turned out the mom was just very frightened and she was not feral. Your dog rescues are great, but you need to learn a lot more about cat rescue. :(

  • 461Jacque

    It's going to be a hard decision to make to donate again. It was cruel and unnecessary to take the mom from the babies immediately. I have see puppies rescued and the mother left with owners who didn't are for any of the dogs and now kittens taken from their mothers. I would rather donate to an organization that believes in rescuing families and not just babies. I have rescued several feral cats, It's not that difficult.

    A lot of people are asking why Hope for Paws didn’t keep the mama cat but some cats can’t adapt to pet life.

  • Nani Wijaya Nasution

    For those who made negative comments on Hope For Paws' action, I am a homeless animal activist in my city (Jakarta, Indonesia). I’ll tell you that Hope For Paws has done the right thing to get the mother spayed and then release her because cats only breastfeed their kittens until the age of two months. I noticed from the video those kittens had reached the age of two months. The cycle of reproduction in cats is quite fast, three times in a year. If we we don't get them spayed soon, right after the kittens reach the age of two months (can even be sooner than this), the mother will soon be "in heat", she gets stressed to attract the male cats to mate, then she gets pregnant again. Another bunch of homeless and unwanted kittens are born again! I always do the TNR (Trap Neuter Release) to control the overpopulation of homeless and unwanted kittens in my neighborhood. FYI, based on my own experience, some feral cats can be domesticated through a lengthy process, some just cannot. And also you need to understand that Hope For Paws should handle many things.

    I read a comment 3 minutes in and I can’t watch any more. Not if the momma cat doesn’t get to wean her babies. That was a monstrous decision!!! Her hormones would have taken her to a happy conclusion; with her babies leaving the “nest”. I’m just appalled. Feral kitties might not fit in for you, but her kittens would have still been fine with people and you could still spay-and-release. There is NO “good reason” (as people are apt to claim) for this.
