Please learn the lesson.
Usually, mama cat comes back.
Another kitten call, 4 tiny babies, they think mama has been run over because she hasn't been back all day and they have been checking every 15 minutes and please could someone take them and...
People, please! The cat you saw flattened on the road two miles away is probably not mama, she wouldn't go that far to hunt for a meal. She will stick close to look for food.
Do not go out there and mess with the kittens every 15 minutes to see if mama has come back. Even if she has, she is hiding, waiting to make sure you are going to stay away.
Most mama cats are good mamas. Yes, we get some that run off. There is that one wild Siamese out in P-ville that we have been trying to trap for 3 years who drops 2 litters a year and abandons them all at 2 weeks. She is not a good mama, and we are ordering a special drop trap to get her so she can be spayed. She is the exception, however, and most of the time, if you wait, she will be back.
