Trapping Activity Sept 4th

Friday morning, Sandestin Security reported small kittens in the middle median of the South gate entrance. This is a high traffic area and a very dangerous place for any animal, much less 4 week old kittens. There were at least 3 kittens sighted and two were successfully caught by Anne Harriot, president of Feline Friends of Destin. We are still looking for another black kitten known to be in that area.
Here is a picture of the two kittens who are now in need of foster care and a future home:
