It is a sweet blessing to have your precincts be chosen as an acceptable place to deliver kittens!
As to their disposition into loving homes, would suggest having people adopt pairs of littermates because they will keep each other company and you can give two away each time.
An ethically questionable way to find homes is to take them all with you to a park or playground where mothers and toddlers go to play and get out of their houses. Then you can praise the benefits, ease and safety of having pet cats to the moms while the children beg and wheedle "Can we keep them, please?" and choose their favorites. Ask the kids which ones they like best, to prompt possessive instincts and let nature take its course.
Don't forget to take a little pack of dry treats and a saucer with a small bottle of milk. A ball of paper on a string will entertain all. You're pulling strings but the moms are grown up and can consent whether to refuse or to adopt. Soon you will notice them run off with that "Uh-oh here comes that adopt-a-kitten person" look. But there will be those who are already "kittened" and they will hang around with you. There are also lots of places like that. (Humans are 'the' most invasive organisms on earth and tend to proliferate wildly!)
Hi Cat lover's, I'm new here and I'm an extreme Cat(animal)Lover. Although I only own 1 cat she is my baby. I got here 7yr's ago April and I'm so grateful to have her in my life. I got her when she was only 5 week's old and ever since I'm the only mommy she know's. She is a house cat, but has adventured out since I've moved down South and into this hugh house with alot of yard, But she doesn't go far and she's really not a people cat,only me. Since the loss of my husband it look's like we will be the one's growing old together. And it might sound weird but it seem's as if I can feel my husband's presence in her(especially when I'm crying). Well I just wanted to share and my name is Lisa and my baby's name is "Snuggles" !!!
I love cats and have three. Two cats were from a feral cat colony, and one was adopted from a shelter.
What a wonderful group for me to join! I absolutely love cats and I thank God every day that he put this love for animals into my heart so that I have the passion to speak for them. What a gift!
Advise needed ! ! !
We have been inundated with feral cats. Our back yard had become a favorite birthing-place for the past two years.
Moms have their babies, wean them and then leave. We now have two litters of four each. Trying to find homes for them, but no luck and the SPCA and Humane Society are not taking any newbies.
Don't know what to do. Can't just put them out in the cold.
Please give me some ideas.

Hey, guys (and gals!) I love cats; and I'm a vet tech. People come into my entryway and see my knick-knack shelf (about half of it filled with cat fugurines) and say, Geez, you weren't kidding when you said you like cats!
I am trying to teach my cat to ask for food by placing his paws on my thigh, he's just got it but digs his claws in!!
