Found 1 Feral Cat and 2 Kitten Litter. What to Do?

Hi everyone.

Woke up to a feral cat who has 2 kittens living in our backyard in St Albans Victoria.

I have called council but they have said to hire a $60 cat trap which seems a bit stiff for a problem i didnt have yesterday. They will allow me to have it for 2 weeks?

Questions for you all.

Has this ever happened to you and what did you do?
Should I feed the cat and what should i feed it with? Even though the cats are a nuisance i guess i should feed it?

any services that would freely come pick up the cat or kittens?

Should I just get the cat trap and get it over with?

    Haha, good to see this thread is playing out like every other cat thread in the history of OzBargain.

    Cat owners: "My cat never goes after native wildlife. I've never personally seen any evidence and, as we know, qualitative studies with a sample size of one are inherently reliable and replicable."

    Other people: "Uhhh, evidence?" We're not saying you can't have a cat, but please just keep it contained kthx.

    Cat owners: How dare you generalise about Mr. Whiskers. If he's kept indoors he exhibits some anthropomorphised psychiatric condition that hasn't been diagnosed by a veterinary professional. Why don't you kill yourself instead? #notallcats"

    Rinse, repeat.
