Handling newborn kittens.

Species: Cat
Breed: Long haired cat
Age: Less than 3 mon
Hello,
My cat has recently had kittens. I think they are a day old. She had them in our barn and I would like to know why I can not pick them up?
Thank you!




Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

You can definitely pick up newborn kittens.

I wouldn't take them away from mom as this might stress her out. But, handling the kittens is just fine!

Dr. Marie.
