Hello!
A stray cat i’ve been feeding has brought me her babies this morning.
I’ve got all but 1 kitten inside of my laundry room with momma cat. I have a liter box, food and water out there with them as well.
Stray momma cat will always come back to my house, so should i let her back out to go find her other kitten than i couldn’t catch?
Also, any other tips would be helpful!

Yes, momma cat knows where she had left the last kitten, so you should let her out to retrieve the missing one. I doubt she will take the other kittens away from your laundry room, I have understood she knows and trusts you.
How old are the kittens?
Make sure she and her babies are comfortable, so they won't leave.

Yes she knows and trusts us!
The kittens are still nursing, but they look to be maybe 5 weeks? That’s just an estimate!

Momma cat is sleeping on the front porch right now, but babies are in my laundry room.
They’ve stayed hidden all morning, but they have all of the supplies they need! Also i am keeping an eye on momma cat and having her come in every few hours to check on babies

Thank you so much for helping this family. Did the last kitten turn up?
