I'd try calling the Animal Defense League and asking if there are any people who might foster the kitten. If it is really small, it may be able to be domesticated, and kittens are far more adoptable than adult cats. There is also the San Antonio Feral Cat Coalition (San Antonio Feral Cat Coalition). I hope that someone can help you.

I believe that is an illegal cat colony and you should call ACS

Well, tried all of the organizations listed, and no one is picking up.

We've fed it and gave it some milk and water, but I would like to get rid of this thing as soon as possible...

Clare Boothe Luce was right!

this has been an ongoing issue...HOA is involved, city is involved, multiple complaints have been issued. Just called again a few weeks ago when I saw new kittens on their doorstep and was told there is already a work order to investigate that address yet again... Sigh.

We got pretty lucky. There were 4 cats running loose (one met its demise on Reed Rd). The (now) 3 of them belong to neighbors and while normally I dont want to be bothered by them, they have done a great job of controlling the mice migrating from the new subdivision being built across Reed. Of course the flip side is that some times I end up with a dead mouse on my doorstep.

The cats like to spread the love it appears.

I wouldn't worry, I'm sure one of the organizations mentioned will help you when they are open tomorrow. A hassle it might be until then but thank you for taking it in, even if you don't like cats it certainly would have had hard time in the heat with no water. I've lost two of my kitty family members in the last six months, one to lymphoma another to a stroke, I'd love to take it but we are in the process of selling our home and moving to Arizona so the timing is all wrong. When you catch them this young they can be tamed. Denise at SCAT has a huge heart, I'm sure if you showed up with that kitten in a crate at Petsmart @281 in the morning hours she would take it! She would of course appreciate a donation in turn or maybe a donation of canned cat food if you can swing it.

Hi, majormadmax.

Check out this site for a list of cat rescue organizations in SA. There is quite a large network of cat rescuers in SA. If you have already contacted all of them then thanks for trying.

San Antonio Cat Rescue

Around here, they are a problem because they kill birds, attack peoples' dogs in their own yards, use the bathroom in our bushes (which smells to high heaven), and are a generally a nuisance.

Plus, they aren't really "wild;" they are/were peoples' pets who just want to let them run loose. Or, there is a good chance that it was just dumped here because someone didn't want it anymore.

Either way, neither my neighbor nor I want it on our properties, and we are trying to do the right thing by the animal. There are much quicker/easier options for getting rid of it, so spare me the editorial because this has already gotten to be more of a hassle than its worth; and let's keep this to more constructive suggestions...
Ha, no thanks! We have enough to deal with in our hood like everyone else. I am glad you're trying to solve the problem by seeking assistance. My experience with the Animal Defense League is not good. They want you to deliver a perfectly healthy specimen to them or forget it. Hopefully some of these other suggestions pan out for you. Good luck.

Another place to try is Bulverde Area Humane Society. They took in a dog after Katrina when everyone else was full! Barbara is the person who runs it, another animal person with a huge heart.
#Phone: 830 980-2247 Open Tues, Thurs & Sat. 10am to 1pm

I'd ask around with neighbors too, maybe one knows someone who loves kitties and can't say no.
