Finally, I caught Little Miss Siren!
She’s sitting in one of my cat carriers here in the computer room. I put some food and water into the carrier with her but she’s refusing to eat.
I’ll be bringing her down to the shelter on my way to the dentist. I’m willing to have trap/neuter/return her so long as I can get the spay done for cheap (we don’t have any money for stuff we need much less to spay a cat) which is why I’m taking her to the shelter. She’s not feral, she’s stray. I really, really want to do the right thing here and will be advocating such. While I have no issue with setting up a feeding station for her and any other stray/feral, I can’t afford to get them fixed and ear tipped. I will do the best I can and right now that’s getting her into the shelter.
I don’t know if she’s pregnant or not. I certainly hope not. I didn’t try to touch her because I don’t want to have my hands ripped off. I’ve heard her crying the last few nights which is why I set the trap out last night and why I think she’s probably not pregnant. Correct me if I’m wrong but cats don’t usually caterwaul unless they are in heat, right? If so, then she wouldn’t be singing her siren song if she was pregnant. Or at least that’s how the logic works in my head.
Here’s Little Miss Siren’s saga thus far:
