ok so I know my mom’s adult female cat is pushing her kittens away.. they are almost 5 months but earlier this week maybe Sun.. my mom said she was actually feeding her 5 month old kittens, it looks weird cause the mother cat is small and her kittens are big.. still smaller than her but they are almost her size..
is that normal? it’s her first… and only litter…
what is the oldest kittens you know that the mother cat still fed?
The boys need to be altered, too. Even though mom is spayed and there is no danger of multiplying there, the guys will start territorial aggression and marking. The fights could become quite serious and you really don”t want to deal with the odor of marking.
Also, the guys could get out and breed with intact females in the area causing more unwanted and feral kittens.
Maybe call your vet and ask if you need to force ween? A friend of mine had to do that with her rescued mom cat and her babies. It was not easy- she had to separate the mom and babies part time and there was complaining from all cats involved but the mom was very young herself and inexperienced. Also she needed medicine for something and could not feed while on it so they force weaned.
