If you happen to find one or more baby kittens, it’s important to resist the urge to touch them. Your first instinct may be to scoop up those kittens and take them home, but if you want to do what’s best for them, back away and keep an eye on them. Their mother may simply be hiding because you’re nearby, or she could be hunting for food. She could also be in the process of moving her young to a safer place since this one is obviously frequented by humans.
If the litter of kittens is still there after six hours, contact a rescue group. A feral cat will hide her kittens to protect them from predators and intact tom cats. Newborn kittens are blind and cannot protect themselves, so they rely on their mother to keep them safe.
