Also, am helping an Albany family feeding the offspring off two females that found their way to the family's rural property, probably dumped or bred nearby by others. This was an easy thing, because the woman is anxious to get it done and follows directions and helps! Man alive, wouldn't it be nice if everyone made things so easy?
I went this morning with my drop trap, and just as I'd asked, she had not fed them, had her own cats contained, and the unfed teens were swarming. I set up the drop trap and waited only a couple minutes, for one last kitten to crowd under and dropped the trap on 8 cats at once. 8 cats! In about 15 minutes of time there.
A mother, and seven kittens. Six of the kittens are hers. The other kitten is the only survivor from the missing (this morning) mother's litter. She believes the others in his litter were killed by owls. That other mother is the only one I didn't catch and did not show up this morning. So hopefully the woman will be able to catch her later today or tonight. I left her traps. Here are photos of six of the eight I caught.

I had only 3 sets of trick or treaters who braved the down pour. They had some great costumes!
Now guess who gets to eat all that left over candy?
