The mother cat did her best to keep one of the kittens, who had gotten stuck on one glue trap, calm. The other three kittens were glued together by their fur in a different trap. The mother cat was completely helpless and unable to do anything for her babies in distress.
"I took scissors and cut around the trap to separate the three so I could get each one unstuck at a time," the kittens' rescuer told AAURP. He was careful not to accidentally cut one of the kittens while freeing them.
