After the critical points of surviving have been taken care of, Momma Cat teaches things to babies - manners with claws and biting, litterbox manners, not playing too rough, etc. How does a surrogate (human) mother teach those social skills? Especially so they are model kittens for adopters, so they will come back to adopt from the rescuer or rescue org again, and so baby doesn't end up in a shelter because of behavior problems.
