my cousin who takes care of animals at a shelter touched three of them to move them to a warm box, but now rosie is moving away from them and is not going near them, we are afraid she might be rejecting them. what do i do?

Daniel, Did you put them back with mama kitty? If you did and she continues to leave them alone, you may have just adopted three baby kittens. They will have to be fed every 2 hours by eye dropper or baby bottle (animal baby bottle) with a milk that you can get from your vet or from the store that is kitten milk. Do not give them regular milk! And keep them warm on a heating pad. Do not put them directly on a heating pad, put a blanket over the heating pad and put it on a low heat.

While you feed them, keep them in the same position as they would be if they were eating from their mama. Do not lay them on their back, they can choke. After eating, you will need to burp them, just like babies and you will need to take a wet cotton ball and wipe their little bottoms to help them go potty and poo poo, just as Mommy would do and this is very important too. The wet cotton ball step should be done before and after feedings. We just went through this with two babies, I speak from experience.

Every two hours, I believe for I can't remember how many weeks. I can look it up for you tomorrow. But for your sake and the kittens too, I hope she takes them back. Let me know, o.k.?

Oh, Danielle, I am so glad Momma kitty took them all back! It's best not to move them! It is SO much work and so scary to raise baby kittens from day 1. Nerve racking actually, but it can be done. But I am so glad to hear that it is working out for you. Please post some pictures for us if you can, (but don't move them!) hee hee.

She is just protecting her babies. It's o.k., she's just being a good mama. Don't be upset at her for that. That is to be expected of a new mommy (anything). Those are HER babies and she wants to keep them safe. It's a sign that she will keep them safe from anything and that she will be a good mom.

Congrats on the baby kitties! i bet there really cute Im glad momma took the kittens back, bottle feeding them is hard work. I wouldnt worry too much about how momma kitty is acting toward the other cat. Like Charlene said, shes just doing her job. it means she'll be a good mother. As the kittens get older she will relax more, and they will be friends again.
