How far do Mother cat's move their babies?

Got a new, young, furry love in your life? This is the place for you to ask all of your questions - big or small! Just remember that you are receiving advice from other cat owners and lovers... not professionals. If you have a major problem, always seek the advice of a vet or behaviorist! Most important is to remember to have fun with your new fur baby.

I ask because there WAS a mother and her two week old kittens (well at they looked that old) living under one of the stairwells in my building. I had seen all them on Monday as I was leaving and then the mother saw me when I got back and I am certain had a melt down about. Today, I went to move all of the box's the construction crew left behind and poof! No Mama and no kittens! I looked through out our entire ENCLOSED SECURED building and can't find them!

I already has worked with my non-profit shelter to place them in foster care but I just wasn't quick enough. And I didn't have the time or the heart to move the kittens out the stairwell when I had the chance. I am really hitting myself over the head for this one because I am typically put my needs second and a furry friends needs first.

Anyways, I was also wondering if I put a new clean box w/bedding in it, that maybe she might come back with the kittens? I was thinking of putting out food too. The conditions of the stairwell has changed since she's been there; I had to sweep up broken glass and what not.

But if some one could give my an idea of far the mothers typically move their young, that would help.
