How to Rescue Kittens with a Feral Mom

Feral cats may not want to be near you, but they’re still great moms for their babies! This video shows how you can give feral cats a safe space to raise their young. While the kittens can be socialized and adopted, a feral adult cat cannot be socialized and does not want to be indoors. The safest and best place for them is outdoors – after they have been spayed and vaccinated.

I love how accepting the kittens are. A big ass random thing scooping and pushing you around? Just take it as it comes. They really just couldn’t care less

It’s crazy how different cats can be. One day a feral cat approached my grandpa and kept meowing at him while he was doing yardwork until he followed her behind the garage. What happened was she had given birth to a litter of 4 kitten in barrel, but it was raining and said barrel was slowly filling with water and the mama cat was smart enough to know she needed help with the kitties. They were all taken in and given this kind of treatment, but the mama cat absolutely loves my grandpa because I guess she knows what happened and was grateful her kitties are safe. She’s super affectionate with everybody now, years after and hates being outside now.

It’s almost like she knows the concept of privacy. Incredible how she smacked the camera away at night 🐈

It’s funny because a few months ago I had the exact OPPOSITE problem. There’s this stray momma cat who always comes around where we live and she grew quite fond of us. For a while she had disappeared and she came back PREGNANT and decided to have her kittens there. The mom is really friendly, so much so that she would even try to call her babies to come and see us. But the kittens were not having it. Finally we lured them into a kennel and took them to a place where they could get trained and used to people and hopefully adopted. She had SIX of them and I find that really funny because the mom is an extremely tiny cat lol. We later got her fixed so no more babies. Guess she’s ours now lol.

I got so emotional when you said “She’s actually happier outside. This is her home.” I adopted a stray cat last year who was so sweet and well-behaved. As much as I wanna keep him indoors, I freed him because I realized he was actually happier outside. I’m just happy that after a day of playing and doing its thing outside, he comes home and wanted snuggles and cuddles and FOOD ahahaha! I love that cat, sadly he passed away a few days ago due to old age and complications. He was my first ever pet. I was always scared of animals but he came to me at the most random time to make me feel that animals are not all scary. They are capable of loving you and healing you and protecting you. Now I wanna cry 😭

Great work there – thank you on behalf of kitty cats.
If I may make a point – if you can keep kittens with Mum a little longer than just 12 wks it is much better for all. ❤❤

I just realized she’s a calico with three kittens, and each kitten displays one type of coloration. They’re like the RGB profile of their mum.

I rescued a feral mama, abused by our neighbors severely (they would kick her and throw things at her). She was like this…no, much worse. It has taken 2 years for her to trust us and stop randomly attacking us. Now she only gets spooked by weird gestures or noises, and will swat.

Animals can experience fear and trauma too, and you just have to be patient with them. Give them the space and time they need, show them you are safe.
