Patches first day

Today has been rough ... I was up at 4 and finally got Patches at 6. I put the babies in the dog crate with out the door on in the sunroom thinking Patches would go in there .. not so much ... Shon messaged me mid day to say she had not eaten and she was ignoring her babies .. I told him to take the babies out of the crate and place them on a rug in the middle of the floor .. within 30 minutes Patches had moved them to another rug and was licking them and feeding them. When I got home I fixed her a new plate of food. Dry and wet and went out she hid them behind her and was posed for a fight, hissing and growling. I left the food and came back into the house and I haven't bothered her. Im hoping by morning, 24 hours after being caught she will be calmer .... Her and I will need to have a talk .. as I want to touch those babies and make sure they are friendly.


  1. Oh, that is stressful for you AND for her. I hope hope hope for something good today.

  2. the one piece of advice we got with feral moms is to leave the lights very low too....it helps them think they are hiding and safer. it can be very hard but at least she was nursing them at some point

  3. Good luck with that Mama and her babies.

  4. Good luck making friends with Patches and getting the opportunity to socialize those kittens. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
