If you’ve found Kittens
If you find young kittens without their mom, it does not necessarily mean they have been abandoned. Their mother could be out looking for food or finding a more suitable home for her kittens. If you find one or two kittens, mama may be in the process of moving the family and is on her way back for the others. If the kittens appear healthy, please wait and observe from a distance for an hour or two before doing anything else. Important Note: When dealing with mother cats, it’s essential to exercise patience and discretion. These vigilant felines can spot you from a distance. We kindly request that you stay indoors and out of sight for at least 6 hours before drawing any conclusions. For detailed guidance on your next steps, please refer to the following link.
We sincerely appreciate your dedication to ensuring the safety and well-being of these kittens. We understand that this approach may not align with your initial assumptions, but we want to assure you that it is backed by scientific research and studies. Your efforts in following this method will greatly benefit the kittens’ health and development. Thank you for your understanding and compassion in making a positive impact on their lives.
