If you discover a litter of kittens, before coming to their rescue, watch and wait to see if their mother is coming back for them. A mother cat will not approach if she senses someone is nearby. It may be several hours or more before she returns. Remember, community cats are most active at night, so you may not catch a glimpse of the mother at all.
If you are unsure if the cats/kittens you found are in need of rescue please email Riverdale Animal Shelter at [email protected] or call us at 720.523.PETS (7387).
