    My cat is missing and she has left seven little kittens that are crying so loudly I can hear them from inside where would she have gone or are my suspicions confirmed and she is dead

    It is odd indeed that she hasn't returned to them, unless she is a first time mother?

    If she has successfully reared kittens in the past, I am very sorry to say that I too would be very worried. Is it though possible that someone took her to the animal shelter?

    Good luck!

    She has had kittens twice before and successfully reared them all this is very unnatural for her she usually stays around we have had a curious fox hanging around so she may have saved them by being bait for the fox I want to take them to the vets so they can help but they close at 12:00 on weekends which I think is really stupid but anyway

    I would get the kittens some milk replacer and start feeding them. Also, if they are outside, I would bring them inside. Sounds like mama may not be coming back. [​IMG]

    Good news the vets took them in and promised to look after them and find new homes for them all ,but their mother is definitely not coming home if she was alive someone would surely have seen her by now and taken her to the shelter
