When we find a litter of tiny kittens, our good-hearted instincts tell us to rush to the aid of these fragile felines.  Thankfully, just like a baby hare, human intervention is typically not required.  The best thing you can do is leave them alone and wait for mom to return until they are self-sufficient. It is important that kittens remain with mom as long as possible because she offers the best chance of survival.

If mom does not return within eight hours, or they are not self-sufficient, they need your help.  Not to worry though, there are many options to save them.
