Cats/found kittens


I found a den of kittens in the bush around my property, I was
able to grab two of the kittens but two others escaped. The
kittens have their eyes open and can run. Should I put them
back in the Bush where we found them or what do you suggest.

ideally they should be brought up by their mum, but something may have happened to her in which case you will have to take over job of mum. the best option is to put them back and keep a close eye to see if a mother cat comes back in a few hours as she wont stay away too long. if not then you will have to take over.

I have some pages on my site about how best to do this


best wishes Kate
