I would trap her and bring her to a shelter, so the kittens might find a good home. My Future Mother-In-Law did that twice. Her backyard seems to be a stray cat nursery.

I don’t know where you live, but in our area, it would already be too cold for the kittens to even have a chance for survival. Are there any pet shelters in your area that could assist you with capturing the mother cat and kittens? We have a great non-kill cat shelter in our town that helps catching feral kittens and rescue cats. They even neuter and spay grown ferals.

Call your local shelter, aspca or city. A lot of these places will trap a cat for you or let you borrow one of their traps. I would definately get her to shelter or rescue for care.

Call a local shelter and ask for their advice. She (and most importantly the kittens) should really be inside. If left alone, even if everyone survives and is healthy, then the kittens will be (unfixed) strays who will breed more unfixed strays etc etc etc. This way they’ll probably end up in good homes and won’t contribute to the population of homeless, unwanted animals.

I don’t want to be a downer but a lot of shelters will abort kittens because they are so over run with cats and kittens that need homes. I have taken care of pregnant cats in the past and found homes for the kittens and momma cat because of that. The Philadelphia SPCA actually will put down kittens under a certain age, it is very sad. So, if you do decide to trap her just look into the rescue or shelter first.

I hate that people let unfixed pets just roan the streets. So irresponsible! I wish people would not let their cats roam at all (SO BAD for the local environment/bird populations!) so that it would be obvious which cats were strays so that they could be fixed to take down the feral cat overpopulation.
