Can anyone advise, please? My neighbour got a little cat a few months ago, who kept coming over into my garden and seemed to be very thin and desperate for food, then I didn't see her for quite a while, then when I returned from holiday 3 weeks ago, it turned out that she had had kittens during the time I didn't see her (nothing to do with my 3, who are all neutered). I had started giving her the odd meal as she seemed desperate for food and used to come in to my kitchen (my cat flap is broken so just have a gap there, as one of the cats has forgotten how to use the flap), but was amazed when I found these kittens coming under the fence and seemed to be at weaning age, as they scoffed the food also as though they were starving. I started to put regular kitten food down at the far end of the garden, in case they weren't being fed properly, and also gave the mother a meal of her own. The neighbour is out for huge amounts during the day (ie starts VERY early and gets back late, and the kittens are kept outside, she says, implying that the food is left outdoors also - not very hygienic in good weather. I know that the cat doesn't like hard 'kibbles' - even kitten ones - so that isn't an alternative). However, my own cats started to get very nervy with the regular visits and frightened to stay in their own garden, and much as I hate to see any animal suffering, I was worried about my cats wandering around elsewhere, frightened, when they used to enjoy being in their own garden. Even though the mother is tiny, she is quite spiteful and always hissing (though I guess that being a mother of kittens may not help that, so I can't blame her, in a way). I decided enough was enough today as found that I had to follow my own cats into the neighbouring field to feed them as they were frightened to eat their food in the house or garden. I blocked up the gap under the fence where the kittens were coming in and keep putting the mother on top of the neighbouring fence and 'easing' her over, with much hissing and spitting. I feel bad about it but what else can I do? I think that a couple of the kittens have now been adopted but wonder about the welfare of the other two. And what of the mother? I feel bad for her. I cannot report my neighbour as, firstly, I can't prove anything, and secondly, it would be obvious that it was ME as we live down an 'alleyway' and she is on the far end and I am next to her. There are no other neighbours in houses who would know what is happening as the large field is behind and beside her house. I have to add that I cannot have an easy conversation with the woman. There is a slight language problem and she is quite 'forceful' and she has a rather strange boyfriend - I am frightened about reprisals to my cats if I reported them. The boyfriend seems to be out a lot also and I never hear the back door open (leading to where the kittens are) open when he gets back from work, so don't think that he feeds the cat/kittens. What on earth can I do? I hate being horrible to the little cat and am worried about the kittens that are left, but I can't risk my own cats wandering off to find a more 'peaceful' billet.
