Afterwards, both Angel and Ginger seemed to hold no grudges against us - returning to visit on the lanai:Amazingly, Kauai Ferals brought me two traps a couple of hours ago, and they now house Ginger and Angel. They will be checked by a vet, spayed and returned here in a couple of days. Ginger and Angel were the only non-tipped (un-neutered) that were part of the local "herd" that we had seen (though two additional un-tipped have shown up this afternoon). First time I have ever tried helping out in management of a colony!

One of the cats we wanted to trap:
|We called him "SC" for Scaredy Cat - he was VERY cautious, and the one time I saw him in the trap, escaped just as the door was closing on him, which made him even more cautious.|
Some additional history - I found some additional pictures from October 2, 2012:
I had included this comment: Anybody want us to bring you a kitty from Kaua'i? These are on our lanai... there are two others under the front steps.
I am pretty sure the calico is the same as the one I called "Sweetie Pie" the following year (pictures further above). I don't think that the orange tabby kitten is the same as "Max" - I think Max may have been a previous generation.
We got rid of all of our timeshare weeks at the same time that we were clearing things out of the house in 2014, so we have not been back since 2013... I do sometimes wonder how the kitties at Makai Club Cottages are doing, and we remember fondly our times on Kauai over the years - from our honeymoon in 1989 every other year in odd years through 2013, with a couple of even year visits thrown in too.
