My 2 or 3 year old cat had 2 litters and raising the third one now. Her second litter had 5 kittens, one black, two gray tabbies, and two orange tabbies. One orange tabby was light orange. The mother brought them out on August 12, 2016. They already opened their eyes after, a couple days the light orange tabby we called Sandy was gone. I searched for her but had no luck after, 6 months the mother cat had her third litter.
After almost 2 months after the third litter was born a light orange cat came with the believed to be the father of all the three litters. I try to figure out it's sex but, it always runs away. I think it is a female because the father does not attack it.
They also visit the mother cat and the kittens are there too. The light orange tabby started to visit the mother cat more often. Could this be the lost kitten? And if so did it wander off and someone adopted it or did it survive being taken by an animal.
Every time we leave the mother cat alone outside when we check on here the light orange tabby usually comes. It just started today. It always runs away from us. How do I make it know that I am not going to hurt them?
