Alte - the Alte project is coming to an end for now.
This morning we caught one more kitten, unfortunately we didnt see kitten nr 6, and we were also notified of 3 kittens living on a roof. They will unfortunately all have to wait until end September!

We trapped this little tabby kitten, and returned the 4 siblings we caught last week. It was a quick visit to the vet clinic this morning, drop off one, pick up 4 🙂
We will post the video of the release seperately as facebook will not allow us to post pictures and videos in one post..
