New born Kitterns - homes wanted

Hi . I have a property on the spring development and have just been informed that a cat has just given birth to 3 kittens in my property. Obviously they are being looked after. Any advice would be very welcome as I live in the UK and don't really know what to do. I don't want them to be abandoned as they were only born this morning and need to be with mum. She has used my room as a safe place. What do i do as I'm not sure any of my renters will want this.

thanks

New born kittens - homes wanted

Hi . I have a property on the spring development and have just been informed that a cat has just given birth to 3 kittens in my property. Obviously they are being looked after by renters at the moment. Any advice would be very welcome as I live in the UK and don't really know what to do. I don't want them to be abandoned as they were only born this morning and need to be with mum. She has used my room as a safe place. What do i do as I'm not sure any of my renters will want this. I think she may feel this is her home. Mum looks a baby herself. I was out there week ago and obviously fed her as she was pregnant. She is a lovely cat and very friendly. If anyone is kind enough to have her that would be fab. I would but its a real problem bringing back to the UK. Im not back until August. I am happy to pay for her to be spade.
Or any advice would be great i.e. cat shelters etc.

thanks

Re: New born Kitterns - homes wanted

I also have 4 gorgeous Kittens in the kusadasi area of Turkey.... Long storey short!! we rescued these little kitties, that were left in an empty neighbours house..the mother wasn't coping well, and these guys were in a bad way...dehydrated, starving, and bad eye infections....So we collected the little fellas and orf to the vet we went...after some treatment and taken care of, they are all bouncing all round my house and loveing life...

I have 2 males, and 2 females.....if anyone can give 1 or more of these guys a good home....it would be great...I'm happy to pay for neutering if required!!

Steve

Re: New born Kitterns - homes wanted

We also own a property near to Spring. There are lots of feral cats (and a few dogs) who have young, especially at this time of year. It's very important not to feed them unnecessarily as they do find food from the numerous bins, rodents and food left lying around. In my experience cats find somewhere to shelter, and there are plenty of places in that part of Ilica. My concern is the increase in kittens, who then go on to have kittens themselves. Nature needs to take its course, and these kittens do not always survive. Sad but true. I would never invite a cat into my property, or feed it. They're wild.

I find this post quite offensive and I'm certain any true animal lover would see the total lack of empathy that this person has for other living creatures.
All animals, cats, dogs, horses and everything else deserve a fair crack at a healthy life as we would expect for ourselves.

'It's very important not to feed them unnecessarily! Realy??
I would feel that it's extremely important to see any animal fed properly. If you put food outside the entrance to your Site morning & eveningtime, you have no need to invite them into your homes but it will keep the animals out of the filthy bins etc, in turn keeping them cleaner and much healthier.

'My concern is the increase in kittens, etc'. Then get together and do something about it. Animals in this situation have no way of helping themselves.
Take the adult cats for sterilisation. Some of the vets will charge you half the going rate, Mustafa near the big mosque in Side is fabulous and supports us all the time as we take cats and this week 2 street-dogs in to be sterilised.

Over the last 20 years, groups that I've been involved with both in Kuşadası and here in Side have sterilised towards 3000 cats between us and many dogs.
Here in Side the cats are fed outside our office in the morning and again in the evening before we go home. They're all healthy and clean, tourists that come each year to stay in the local hotels come by and are so pleased to see their particular favourite cat still going strong.

I have no problem with this. We raise money as a group to meet the needs of these animals and overall, we get good reults that are there to be seen by everyone.

It's all too easy to keep on complaining about things that don't suit but unless you actually get together and DO something positive, things will only get worse.

Actions definately speak louder than words.

Rant over, back to work!

Re: New born Kitterns - homes wanted

It would appear Sharon H that you are definitely not an animal lover hence the comments in your blog! As Freedom49 states that ALL these animals deserve a shot at a happy and healthy life which means feeding them instead of them having to rake through the bins. We have adopted several feral cats who have gone on to lead a happy life, some not so fortunate as they were unwell when they came to us originally although we did everything we could to keep them alive. If you don't want to feed them, ok but don't put other people off from feeding them if they wish to and they don't have to be invited into your property as they are feral anyway and wouldn't do so. As stated, the females need to be spayed to stop the birth of kittens so instead of complaining about them, all get together and raise some funds to get this done! There are two ladies who do table top sales on a Sunday at the Flying Horse in Side to raise funds to prevent these things from happening and also to keep them healthy if they need vet treatment. Perhaps you ought to try this, it's very rewarding!

Re: New born Kitterns - homes wanted

What a wonderful person you are Steve and it's just a pity that there aren't a few more like this on here instead of the negative posts they put on the forum! It was lovely of you to rescue them and take them to the vet so at least they have a chance of a healthy survival! We live in Manavgat and we've been feeding feral cats outside our property and we have even gained the trust of a couple who now let us stroke them but they know where to come for food so they are never hungry! Keep up the good work and thank you.

This is the most callous post I have read in a long time.

Re: New born Kitterns - homes wanted

My wife and I walk several miles every evening.

First we call at local schools to collect lunch left overs and then to several sites where there are stray dogs. We’d like to have them spayed but they are faster afoot than we are.

I’ve never seen a stray cat or kitten here but as most people in the city live in apartments I think they are adopted fairly quickly. One acquaintance has 22 (yes, 22!) cats in her 2-bed apartment and we make a small contribution every month towards their upkeep.

There’s no way we could see an animal go hungry and if we do come across a stray dog my wife will always pop into a café and come back with something.
