New Kitten Rescue question as well as new requests for our help

From: Jackie Eco - Eco Stand-up C.
Sent on: Thursday, July 12, 2012 2:00 PM

hi - can anyone offer some advice for me - ? stray mama cat is VERY tame (this, of all things, is complicating this); her 2 kittens are not. i'm new to a new california house. i'm concerned about the mother attacking me should i get them trapped. she is VERY affectionate and can even rub her nose against any bottles, strings, etc. should i try the "targeted" kitten trapping. i am feeding them closer to the house now, they are starting to feel more comfortable in my presence, i'm just getting impatient. remember, the mother loves me and practically jumps in my arms when she sees me. she is VERY protective of her kittens & has no fear of me (& therefore may possibly attack me in "protecting" her kittens) - unlike a feral adult cat who is terrified of humans. i was hoping to possibly eventually just get the kittens to walk in the house, but that will likely take longer - and time is of the essence in socializing kittens asap. do you know of anyone with this sort of situation and/or can i call someone about this? thanks, jackie eco
