Hello.
Found 4 kittens in a box in street in cold...take them home and feed them and put them on backyard..1 hour later mom came and took one of them..3 days later ..nothing..
They are 2 weeks old

1-What can i do to bring cat mom back to take her kittens with her

2-If she did't come back , what should i do to raise them independent ..survive without my help.
I mean i just can't keep them..I'm a traveller and can't stay home for long and i'm alone
I don't want them to starve after i'm gone and i don't want to ditch them now

What should i do
plz help
Thank you

You must try to find someone other to take them. Not easy, it would be much easier with a little older kittens, infants with lotsa of work arent easy.
A shelter, if they dont have fosters lined up, will probably pts them.
Although even this is less evil then if they starve to death by themselves, or get taken by predators.

Where are you? Somebody here perhaps has more advices.

The ideal is to feed every 2 hours. If they are very weak and manage just little, even down to every hour.

Every 3-4 hours stands on many labels of kmr, but its really too seldom...
If you MUST sleep 7- hours, so you must, but its NOT the optimal...

Amount of kmr or goats milk: you weigh them, or appreciate how much they weigh. Then 8+ ml on every 30grammes a day.

Say, they are 150 grammes apiece now. (5,5 oz). 8x5 = 40+ ml a day, if they want more give more, but shouldnt be less.
40 ml a day; say you are giving them every 2 hours, but just 10 times a day so you can sleep some. Each meal should be 4 ml...
More if they grow as they shall.

A healthy kitten grows about 10 grammes a day, sometimes even more. If they grow much less its usually because they get too little food.

Try calling nearby shelters, or friends who do not travel who can help you out.

The kittens should be indoors. You need to feed them during the night. Are you feeding them kitten milk with a syringe? They must be fed on their tummy with head up.

They meow (kitten meow)so much i can't even sleep for 2h
They were somehow weak but now they are strong enough to climbing banana box and they move alottt
I did not measure the amount of milk..i just let them eat until they don't want it any more
They let me know...is it wrong?
