The survival rate of kittens depends on a lot of things. With the tens of thousands of homeless kittens in shelters today, I'd say a lot of them survive and probably just as many do not. Whether a kitten lives depends on the health of the queen, or mother cat, how often the queen has kittens, her age, where the kittens are born, how good a mother the queen is, if she and the babies are lucky enough to be rescued and cared for by a kind soul, and on and on. This is an interesting question and I wonder why you ask.
