How to rescue kittens with a feral mom

  • Published on Apr 19, 2019
  • 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.

    what a wonderful video!!! i especially loved the “behind the scenes” watching mama cat play with her kittens when you guys weren’t in the room. also, very helpful of you to show how you opened and closed the carrier door, while still protecting yourself.

      @Sebaka & Co. Calicos are wonderful cats. They don't stay in shelters very long.

    Why didn't you sterilize the mother cat before release?

    Dude why did you separate the kittens and the mom?

  • Some Random Fellow

    What was wrong with the neighbours approach of simply giving the cat food where she was at?

      @IrishEvey Feral cats have it thought, but it depends on where the streets are. I'm in SEA and here it's pretty much the way of life to have wild cats running everywhere. They eat rodents and cockroaches.

      If the climate is cold, then it's tough. But otherwise more cats the better, if you ask me.

      Some Random Fellow none of the cats were spayed or neutered. The mother cat would have had litter after litter, her babies would have grown up to do the same. Feral cats have an extremely tough life on the streets. Getting them fixed and vaccinated and then ensuring they are fed regularly is the best thing and most responsible thing you can do for them.

    So, why are you interfering with this cat again?

    This is amazing, you are amazing. I saved as many cats as possible and it's an awesome feeling, BUT the worse part for me, is separating the mom when it is the time. I just can't do it xD it makes me feel so sad ...wish i could keep them all but, the best is to find someone that can focus on them 100%..

    A vet told me kittens should NEVER be separated from mum before 12 weeks. Eating solid food is not the measurement. There is also the psychologicsl factor. Too young to leave mum.

    He rescued them from a life of killing and hunting pests, fucking cats, fighting rivals, getting free food from old ladies getting petted by various pedestrians whenever they want and exploring an open world to have their balls cut off and live in a 65 square meter space for their entire lives wow isn't he a philanthropist.
