The kittens are back

They were on the front porch when DH left for work this morning. I put Herbert's crate out there and filed it with towels, a bowl of tuna and a bowl of water. They skitter away every time I get near, but so far have kept the food in their line of sight. I'm hoping they get comfortable enough in the crate for me to take them to the local shelter. There are no tags on any of them.

    Can't you just put them in a sack and drop them in the river?  ;)

    I have to get them in the sack first.

    They're hungry little buggers. I've already gone through 4 cans of Tuna, and now I'm all out. Hopefully they stick around once the food is gone. They still run whenever I get close. One little guy couldn't find his way out of the cage when I went to refill the food. Poor thing completely panicked.

    Once they are comfortable enough for me to get near them with a camera I'll take pictures.

    Not to be a Debbie Kitty Hating Downer, but if they're that terrified of humans, what's the point of taking them to the humane society?  Can they adopt them out as farm cats?  If not, won't they just put them down?

    I'm hoping they warm up to me. So far I suck at this. The food is gone and they're back to hiding in the bushes. Oh well.

    If they're young enough, they can usually get acclimated to humans and be adopted out.  It's kitten season, though, and most rescues are full.

    ETA:  Keep trying, Duckis.  Sometimes it takes a little while, but you can get little ones to get used to you.

    Almost all cats are skittish around unknown humans. My family's housecats love the people they live with, but will hide from everyone else. Being afraid doesn't make them unadoptable: it makes them cats.

    BMom has an excellent point.  My youngest cat is a complete cuddler (the only cat I've ever had who meows because he wants to be picked up and held), but disappears the minute anyone he doesn't know walks in the door.

    They're sticking around. I went out to buy them more tuna and they were all hanging out in the crate when I got back home. Now they stare at me and slowly back away. I think they're starting to recognize me as the lady who brings the foods.

    Lucy is a year old now and she still won't come out unless she wants you to see her (then she's very loving).  The other two are weird and demand attention of who enter.
