If you find a litter of kittens, please leave them where they are. Their mother might have heard you coming, so you can't see her, but she's probably hiding somewhere nearby. Kittens have the best chance of survival if they are with their mother, especially if they are very young.

If you are sure their mother is not around, and the kittens are too young to survive on their own (e.g. their eyes are still closed and their ears are pinned down), or if they appear in need of urgent medical treatment, call the RSPCA Welfare Hotline on 1300 278 358. If you are nearby, you can bring them to the RSPCA Animal Care Centre in Malaga.

If the kittens are a little older and appear healthy, please contact your local city or shire rangers. Your local government is responsible for lost or stray cats under the Cat Act 2011.
