Exclamation Found kitten in greenhouse

So, one of our barn cats had a litter a 2-3 weeks ago, anyways. One of the kittens must have wandered into the greenhouse, or was left there when the mother moved them when the rain stopped, what ever happened, I found her stuck between the wall and the pool we have in there for growing saplings. I wouldn't have known she was in there if she hadn't been yelling. I'm not sure how long she'd been in there, anywhere between 2 days to a few hours. When I reunited her with her mother she started nursing pretty quickly. I'm just wondering if there's anything else I should do, I don't want to risk her being neglected because I took her to a vet as it seems that she hasn't been weaned yet.

Hi yandere, thank goodness you heard her yelling/meowing, you've done the best thing by reuniting her with her mum. The mum's doing her bit now by cleaning her and feeding her. The little kitten will be fine now she and mum are back together.

I'm still trying to figure out exactly what happened though. I think the mother brought them into the greenhouse to shield them from the cold and the rain, then the kitten fell in while trying to climb up on the ledge, The mother could not reach her as the gap was too thin and she was too far down so she left her there. But as long as she's well that's all that matters, she was well enough to play with her siblings too, which is a good sign.

I think what you've just said is probably what happened to the little kitten. The main thing is she wasn't injured and has settled back in with mom and siblings.

I just checked on them, she is completely back to normal and seems to be just a healthy as when I last saw her.

Might be a good idea to have the mum spayed and the kittens too when old enough. Some cat charities can help with that free or for a small charge. x
