CatchACatFilter: We have discovered 4 very cute kittens and a mother living in the bushes behind our office. We need some tips on capturing them before the winter hits.

The kittens appear to be around 6 weeks old. We started feeding the cats about 10 days ago as the mother was looking really thin. We've installed a cat carrier in the bushes so they have a dry place to sleep, but obviously this can't go on forever, especially in the Great White North. I've been able to get within about 2 feet of them while they were eating some very tasty sardines, but usually they run away as soon as we step onto the grass in front of the bush. The kittens have started to hang out in the cat carrier, but the mother won't go in.
The current plan is to get all the kittens in the cat carrier (food bribe), and then use a string contraption to close the gate. We'll get shots for the cats and then people within the office will adopt them.
Any tips on catching cute little kitties?
