So this is a bit of a long shot but..
6 week ago a female cat was hanging around our back garden a lot, having 2 cats ourselves we put some food out for her and water and gave her attention. She had no collar and wasn't chipped so we decided to keep feeding her she came by every day that week to be fed and petted and she even ventured into our house a handful of times. Fast forward a week and I'm out in the garden hanging out the washing, I hear meowing so head over to the bushes where the sound was coming from and there in the Bush was this female cat ( socks as we temperellerly named her) and 3 little kittens newborn!! I sat with her and comforted her and not long after she had a forth little kitten. I rang my friend who is a vet not long after she was done giving birth to come and check her over to make sure she was done and she was ok. He assured me that everything was fine with mother and kitties and that once she'd finished cleaning them up to offer her a warm comfy spot inside for her and the kittens.fast forward 5 weeks and this is where we are today, socks was great for the first few weeks feeding and tending to her kittens around the clock, we fed her well and we flead and wormed her and generally looked after her whilst she did such a great job with her babies, she was going outside to use the toilet but coming straight back to her babies. Come week 4 she would spend longer periods of time outside and was eventually leaving them for 22 hours at a time! We are now on week 5 and she comes to the garden to be fed but doesn't come in to feed her babies anymore. We have started giving them kitten milk and have started to litter train tgem this week and they are all coming along great, they have even managed bits of kitten food. They sleep on a heat mat in a big pile of their litter mated and seem to be doing ok, we need to now find the money to get them all vaccinated and the appropriate vet treatment do any help big or small will be greatly appreciated.
