A stray cat had 4 kittens behind my barn, been feeding them for 3 weeks, all of a sudden they are gone. What happened?
The mother hisses at us sometimes but always eats the food we give her. She will come within 3 feet of us. She has been bringing her own food to the kittens (other small animals). We got a used dog igloo that a friend used for her outside cats, we cleaned it and placed it by where they were, within 2 days they were gone. Not sure how old the kittens are, they were eating wet food and starting to eat dry food, very active and playful. Their home was under a woodpile behind the barn and under the roof. Located about 20 feet from a small crick. There are groundhawgs and small water snakes. I see no sign of a fight, no fur, no blood anywhere. I am thinking the mother may have moved them?

Definitely. At six weeks, she has to take the kids into the woods/prairie and teach them how to hunt. They may be long gone or nearby. You can do a good deed with TNR (trap, neuter and release) if there are any low-cost clinics or programs in your area. ^_^
