Default New to the forums and 1st time kitty owner!

Hello everyone!
Yesterday I adopted 2 female kittens about 9 weeks old. They were found abandoned in a field with their mom and 4 other siblings. Unfortunately, the mom and other siblings did not make it (there were reports that they all may have been thrown into the field from a moving car).
My three boys and I are first time cat owners so I look forward to educating myself on the forum.

Hello Mama...

So glad you were able to save a couple of those babies. We have a mother and 3 (was 5, but we placed 2 of them) of her kittens. We think the mother was abandoned by the people who were busted in a crack hose nearby. She had the 5 babies a week and a half after we captured her. All the remaining, including mom, have now been spayed or neutered. They are all doing very well.

That was so nice of you to do. It must be nice to have two new members of the house.

Hi Jeff ... It's been quite a challenge working with the ferral cats in our neighborhood. We still have about 4 that live in an old shed in our back yard, or under the front steps where there's a couple of holes than can get through. We found 3 babies a few weeks ago and were able to capture one before they scattered. We call him Bud. He is fitting in to the rest of our cat clan very well.

We don't like the idea of using cages to capture the cats. It seems extreme. So, we feed them and try to get them used to us enough that we can finally pet them. Finally, we try to scruff the cat and get them into a cage indoors where we take care of them and get them used to people being nice and not scary.

Hello & welcome to you & your two little kittens!
I'm glad they've found a loving home with you and I am sure they'll bring you much joy.
You'll find lots of good advice on this forum.
I'm Helen & I have two cats.
