well, i think it depends. does your cat let you hold her kittens? if so, you could take the kittens inside the house and show the mother cat that her kittens are there. if your cat doesn't let you hold her kittens then you could keep a close eye on the kittens then take them inside the house when the mother cat isn't there or let the mother cat keep her kittens there. you could also call the animal shelter but if the kittens are too young they'll have to take the mother cat too. well i hope i helped and good luck :)
