    Although your intentions are very honorable, it's difficult to perform a rescue like this unless you have resources with an animal shelter or rescue organizations. If I were in your situation, I would call an animal welfare group and explain what's going on. All organizations right now are blasted with cats and kittens, but if you agree to "foster" this little family without asking to take up space in their shelter or foster homes, I know they'd be more than willing to help with advice and perhaps even traps. Please understand that by rescuing these cats, you are taking responsibility for them. If they are sick, you will be obligated to vet them. Kittens aren't able to be on their own much before 8 weeks or so, and this is a long-term commitment. Then you'll have to go through the adoption process with them. (No "free kitten" signs, please!) I commend you for wanting to help. Just understand what you're getting into...
