Strays in trouble…
I just got a call from a lady who lives in an apartment complex. Someone moved out in the middle of the night and left behind three stray kittens. The tenants who still live there are feeding the kittens but they just got served with a notice that the butthead landlord has decided anyone caught feeding or giving water to these kittens will be evicted! He has gone and removed all the dishes of food outside the tenant’s door and is looking to do harm for the kittens if he finds them! You don’t know what I want to say about now.
The only way I can take them is to build a special cage made of plywood and chicken wire. It would go out in the enclosed patio. I can’t put any cats upstairs in the summer time- it is brutally hot up there. But I can put them in the enclosed and screened porch. I figure the dimensions are 4′x4′x4′ with a solid roof because the other cats are going to want to jump on the top- plus they will be right by the big bay windows so the direct sunlight would be a big issue. Ot would have to have 2×4′s at least to brace it down so it won’t move and have a door large enough that I can get at least part of myself into the cage to remove litter pans and socialize these kittens.
I’m tapped out right now, I figure I can do this for under $100.00- if anyone can spare anything, I am asking to send it my way. These kittens are being hidden right now by a pretty frightened tenant so time is an issue.
Thank you for your compassion-
