Human Scent & Kitten Abandonment
So today, I recently posted a photo on facebook of my 1 week old kittens laying on my brothers lap.
Since then, I have had MANY hateful people telling me that my cat is going to reject her babies or kill them.
While this does NOT have me worried, It still angers me to a certain point. My cat would have rejected her kittens from the beginning if this was true. I have handled them since they were born, given the fact I assisted in the birth.
What can I say to tell these people that this is a myth, and when it DOES happen, it usually happens in FERAL cats, and not loving, domesticated house cats?
This is also the picture I had taken. Momma was on the other side of my brother, laying next to him sleeping. If they were in any danger, I believe momma would have done something, not just of laid down and slept.
What is your opinion on kitten handling?
