Joann just called me to foster a mom cat and her kittens. We'll probably be getting them Sunday or Monday. Well, a friend of mine just called frantically, one of the ferals she hasn't been able to trap just deposited 3 kittens on their doorstep. My friend moved them to the shed, and now Momma cat won't go near them. I'm not sure whether she did the right thing in moving them. She lives 350 miles away, but it coming up here friday night. If I have her bring them over, and get the foster earlier, would the mom cat let them suckle? Poor Boo isn't going to know what to do with another female cat and a bunch of tiny kittens! Tiger and Jorin'll probably be like "Cool! Playmates!" if I let them nearby, which I won't. I'll probably keep mom & kits in the bedroom with us. Either way, I'm going to take the kittens from my friend in and care for them. It'll be a lot of work, but if they turn out as sweet as Tiger and Jorin (who were hand-fed from 1 week old)it'll be worth it.
