Cat Loses Kitten in College Dorm

I live in a pretty big college dorm where you can easily get lost. And this cat had the wildest idea to have her three kittens in here. The thing is, at first everyone thought it was cute so they were helping and feeding her and everything. But once the kittens grew a little bit everyone forgot about them. And of course the little ones started exploring the dorm. So as of now, one already got lost or taken, I am incapable of finding him even thought I really tried. And the other two always get into trouble. Almost every night I hear the mama screaming and searching for them, sometimes we do find them and other times it takes hours or even days. But since I'm usually the one who helps her, recently she had this habit sitting at my door whenever she loses one. Now, of course I help her, but it won't be long until I go for a holiday and I have no idea what to do. I'm afraid she would stay at my door someday instead of searching for her kittens.

Kittens grow fast. Soon they wont need her. Maybe they dont need her now and thats why they dont look for her.

Do you have a resident assistant? Go to him or her asap and ask for help. Yes, you may get in trouble, but you are talking about the lives of helpless creatures running loose in a place where they could be hurt or worse either by accident or by mean kids.

If you can't care for these animals, take them to a no kill shelter today...as soon as soon as you round them up. They need to be in a place where they can get the care they need and hopefully find loving and safe homes. This includes the mom cat.

Animals are not disposable. They are sentient beings who deserve appropriate care and love.

Please do right by them. Post back with an update. Prayers for these poor animals and that you do right by them.

I would suggest that you gather all the kittens up, and with the mother , take them to your local animal shelter , if you can find a cat carrier to put them all in, if not at least a large card board box to keep them altogether. Thank you for taking care of them !!

Hi,

Kittens are into everything! It was nice of you and the others to be helping the mother. There is not a lot of do for them, because they will go outside or get in places where they cannot be found.

If you put out food in the same place, you might be able to find them after a few days, if not I would say they are gone.

There are often organizations like Alley Cat Allies, which will take cats and pick them up and spay them and then return them. I don't know if there is one near you, or if the cat is even able to be touched. Feral cats are cats which cannot be held or petted.

Whichever the situation is, if you find any of them, I would call the animal shelter and ask them what to do. Before long, the dorm will be full of kittens. They breed fast!

Have a great day and let us know what happens!

Hi There,

Thank you and the others for helping the mother cat with feeding and care. Kittens go everywhere, and they often hide where you can't find them during the day.

I would put out food and see if they come in and eat it. If they don't come to the food, then I would assume they have left the dorm and are out on their own, looking for bugs and such.

I would call animal control if you do not want the mother cat to keep having babies. Cats reproduce fast, and before long there will be a lot of kittens everywhere :)

Have a wonderful day!

Hey there! Thanks for answering me. This morning I went to the administration of the dorm (I'm from Morocco so the system is kinda different in here) and I asked for their help. Turns out, they are already aware of the cat. They actually feed her three times a day and they cleared up a tiny room that gets washed regularly for them.

So I told them that the kittens dont stay in the room and always get lost. But then, they told me that there's a girl who likes them and they're usually just in her room. So I talked the girl and told her that the mama is always searching for her babies and that she should leave them with her, she seemed understanding but I'm still waiting to see what she's gonna do.

Also, about the no-kill shelter. I don't really have one around here. Cat shelters in my city is just a place where a lot of unfixed cats stay and people give them food. The real shelters are overcrowded and I honestly don't believe that they dont kill cats at the end. So I figured that she's taken care of in my dorm sufficiently for now. I do plan on getting her fixed but I'll wait until the kitten won't need her as much they do now.

Blessings for you for following up! I hope it all works out for the fur babies. Perhaps you and the other girl can work something out to find them good homes and get them all fixed.

Hopefully Morocco has free or inexpensive clinics for the spay and neuter process. Keep me posted on the progress!!

Hey! We do have free clinics so that's convenient. And actually the other girl kinda stole the cats from me lol. Now she's taking the whole family in her room. I only manage to see them few times a day. But I'm not complaining, she takes good care of them. I couldn't get them in myself since my roommate is allergic to cat fur. Anyway, we talked about fixing them and she said that she's happy to help.

I'm thinking you need to contact your local animal shelter or people who foster out cats and have these kittens adopted out. I think theywill come to a bad end living in the dorm in this way. Probably a PA or someone can assist with this
