    We adopted our kitten after she fell in the storm drain last year. her parents are the feral cats in the backyard. there are 5 or 6 feral cats out there that spend their life in our neighborhood. there are 3 cats that look identical to our kitten and one of them especially likes to come to our back glass door and sit there and try to get in to see the kitten. she has tried to climb the glass door she will bat at the door and stormy and what i think is her mom will just stare at each other for a while. I’m just curious if cats can recognize their children even when the kitten has been adopted and taken away from the mother’s care. and fyi stormy was sick when we rescued her so we didn’t just take her away from her mom for no reason. just curious

    This is just my opinion, of course, because I’ve a farm and many mom cats have raised their kittens here–but after a certain age it doesn’t seem that they recognize each other as mother/kitten. They KNOW each other and recognize each other and they definitely know when a new strange cat has entered their territory. But in your case, I don’t think that she sees the other cat through the window and longs for her kitten. But what the heck, what do I know??!! 😛

    I have actally been doing a lot of reading on Mother to Kitten relationships because my 4 year old female is going into labor soon. Kittens reconize there mother from there smell so it is actally very likley that your kitten reconizes its mother.
