Feral cat gave birth under our RV...

@dokuja we are trying to figure out if the mother cat is coming back or not. We lurking through windows trying to see like a bunch of weirdos lmao

either way, our city has a good program if it comes to it

@voltur Got some food out for the mama? She might be hungry. I hope she hasn't left them...they shouldn't be allowed to get cold...

@erosdiscordia yeah we have food and water out that she uses regularly. she's a common fixture in our garden. It looks like she hasn't left them, which is nice. I'm really worried about the day-time heat, here.

@voltur Whew, that's a relief. She'll probably come back if nobody goes near the nest, then. I've always heard it's more dangerous for them to get too cold than to get too hot, but what are you looking at, like 100F or something?

re: kitten care 

@erosdiscordia 100F on the low side. We're hitting 110+ lately. I think the next couple of days are a touch lower though -- storm moving in.

re: kitten care 

@erosdiscordia actually the weather looks like it's hovering at 100 for some reason. Luckily it was now rather than next month when we often hit 115-120 for days at a time.

re: kitten care 

@voltur Damn, that's rough. I guess if she's been around your property, she's aware of how hot it would get under there? Is it cooler under there than in the sun, at all? The little doodads would probably be ok, I know the nest is supposed to stay 85-95F. But the mama, wow. Did the vet have any advice?

re: kitten care 

@erosdiscordia we're going to keep an eye on it. the vet didn't seem to think it was an issue yet

re: kitten care 

@voltur Good! I'm so glad that they have such caring people looking out for them. I hope they thrive (and mama too). 💜​

re: kitten care 

@erosdiscordia thanks, yeah we take our responsibility for caring for community animals pretty seriously

re: kitten care 

@voltur @erosdiscordia I’m really glad you’re there to care for them like that.

re: kitten care 

@erosdiscordia we called the vet and they gave us some info, which was nice.
