GOOD LUCK , SHE WILL BE FINE !
  • Be sure to get the kittens and the mama spayed or neutered! You want to prevent more kittens. Millions of cats and kittens, yes, kittens are killed every year in shelters. As long as the kittens are old enough (the ASPCA recommends they are 12 weeks old) the mama should be fine. She will know that they are ready to go. Make sure to give her lots of attention for the first few days after they are gone. The kittens, as long as they are old enough will be social and confident. Kittens get very important skills that they only get with their mama and siblings. Taking them away too soon can make them shy, possibly destructive and only bonding to one person-which means people will want to bring them back to you in a few months because they aren't behaving well. Also, charge a small fee. Sometimes people who get kittens for free have bad things in mind for them. http://pinupsagainstbsl.blogspot.com/2008/06/free-to-good-home-ads.html
  • If they are 8-10 weeks old, she usually won't miss them. She might get lonely but they are at the age when she would want them gone and to stop nursing. They just don't have attachment to their young like people do. When it's time for them to go, they want them gone. In fact, it sometimes is difficult to keep a kitten, especially if they are indoor cats and there is no place for the mother cat to escape the kitten.
  • Give her a couple of Prozacs just to make sure
