I came across a pair of abandoned kittens yesterday. I think one of the workers here in the office scared the mom away and left the kittens. We really can't afford to keep or maintain animals here in the office due to food regulations. I told them to place the kittens in an open box near the perimeter and to wait for the mother to come back for them. Meanwhile, I called the shelter and asked what I should do. (Believe it or not, there's only one animal shelter here!!) Here's what they said: "If the mother doesn't come back for them, you can bring them over and we'll have them euthanized." I've thought about keeping them (again!) but my dad finally put his foot down and said no more stray cats. Plus, we have 5 dogs at home. It's been a day already and they haven't touched their milk and look really weak or sad (I really don't know). I've tried touching them to feed them but they get really afraid and nasty. I can't even peak without causing alarm! Fangs out, hissing - the works! What should I do? The mother still hasn't come back for them and I was informed that after 1 or 2 days, it would have probably forgotten about them already. If I bring them to the shelter, they'll be euthanized! I already told the shelter that I'd be willing to supply the materials and food that the kittens would be needing until they grow but they said they just can't accommodate anymore cats. Is it more humane to bring them to the shelter or should I give them a chance in the streets? I really don't know what I should do...please help!
