Feral cats are born on the streets. They have not spent time with people and are not socialized. Most have never had any human contact, but some were once semi-tame cats that now have to fend for themselves. These cats do the best they can to survive, facing many hardships.
March to November is kitten season, the time of year when most kittens are born and shelters are busiest with incoming cats and kittens. If you have found an orphan kitten, preserving its health is a difficult job requiring prompt action. Before you take any action, be sure the kitten or litter of kittens you have located are truly orphaned.
