We have had a stray cat hanging around lately and she had three kittens a few weeks back, but she will not allow anyone near her or the babies. I've sat for hours trying to lure the babies in closer, but they won't come. I have no idea how old they are, they just started to explore and are still tiny. They are all jet black and the babies have blue eyes while momma has bright yellow/orange eyes. Who knows what daddy was. Momma looks to be very feral, terrified of us, running and leaving the babies most of the time. How can we lure them in to start feeding them in the barn to make barn kitties. We will have to befriend them eventually to catch them and get them fixed and get shots and stuff. Even if I went and bought a cat, how do you teach it where home is? I am afraid to just leave food out, as we have a family of raccoons that are around and would eat it too. I'm stumped, short of setting out an animal trap. I have never had an outdoor kitty before.
