when to let mother cat and kitten outdoors?
We have 6 week old kittens and their mother in a back entry way. The mother is a very socialized barn cat who adopted us right before giving birth. All have been to the vet for shots, etc. When is it safe to let mom and kittens outdoors? Will she watch out for them? We also have free-range chickens and the mom and chickens get along fine but do I need to worry about the kittens? My biggest fear is that if i let them out, this evening they will have scattered and someone will be hurt or missing. Any advice is appreciated!
