Missing Cats, Sad Outcome

I called Katrina last night from a camp site at the bottom of the San Cristobal canyon. She mentioned she saw a dead kitten down by the bottom of the driveway. When I got home today I went and looked. I am not 100% sure but I think its the little black and white kitten that we just started to feed. Its sad, but we really didn't get a chance to get attached to it yet. Katrina mentioned Puff 2 was missing. We just had him neutered and he did fine. Well, I found him but he wasn't alive. It was very sad. It's hard not to get attached to these little guys. After seeing these two kittens dead I now think that Junior may also be dead. We really liked him. We don't know what happened. I wish we did so we could try to prevent it from happening to our other friends. Now we are worried about them.

Summer, it isn't cars. The one at the bottom of the driveway was on the porch of someone's house (they aren't there for the month) above the road and I could smell it which is how I found it. No blood. We haven't ever seen anything dead on our road - it is very small (one car can pass) which makes this really sad and perplexing.

Puff 2 was up near our carport but in the plants near the big mango and I found him by smell. He had just been neutered on Tuesday and was healthy. He was adorable. Now I am worried about the others. I don't want more cats. I am feeding the ones we have befriended inside now so there isn't any food scent to bring any others around. We never left food out, but did feed them outside. Every morning when I wake up now I am going to wonder who is dead. katrina

so so sad to hear about this. i hope a human being isn't responsible, but i've seen a lot in my day. it's always a tossup when you care for cats but are unable to keep them confined. i know you try not to get attached but how can you help it. please don't get discouraged in your efforts. fran
