Why Do Mother Cats Abandon Their Kittens?

Answer

Mother cats may abandon their kittens because they believe the kittens are sick and will die. They may also abandon their kittens if they believe they can't take care of them. Sometimes a mother cat will choose her pick of the litter. She will then care for that kitten and abandon the other kittens. Finally, a mother cat may abandon her kittens if she becomes hurt and is unable to get back to them. A human can try to raise orphaned kittens by feeding it with a pet nursing bottle or dropper.
