Houston TX: Update RE: No time. 4/12 10 AM deadline for newborn kittens who will be killed - Feral Mom to be TNR'd

The mom was TNR'd and the three kittens are in foster care. I don't know particulars about BARC's policy of TNR'ing owner-surrendered scared cats and separating such from 5-day-old kittens but I encourage people to inquire :-(

URGENT! Please save this family. (I didn't take time to fit the email into blog post).
