Mom will likely return. Please don’t intervene.
When we find a litter of kittens, our good-hearted instincts tell us to rush to the aid of these fragile felines. Thankfully, human intervention is typically not required. In fact, the best thing we can do is leave the kittens alone. Mom will likely return shortly, and it’s critical that the kittens remain in her care, as she offers the best chance for survival.
Shelters and rescues are inundated every spring and summer with underage kittens brought in by well-meaning good Samaritans. Please, if you see “abandoned” kittens, don’t remove them from the area if they are not in immediate danger. They’re probably just fine where they are, and kitnapping them can do more harm than good.
