She moved one to the room I had thought she was going to have them in because she always was in the place I made for her. I moved the rest in there and shut the door and left her food and water & litter box, but now she is clawing at the door. I don't know what to do because if she keeps moving them the dog is bound to get them.Cats do move their kittens at times. Where did she move them to?
Yes I did sleep in there with her and she was just fine. She seems happier there. She isn’t scratching at the door yet today either. I think she feels better in that room. I hope she is getting used to being a mommy. I feel she was a bit in shock after the birth and her nap and woke up confused about what just happened. Is it okay that she leaves the kittens for a small time? She jumped on the bed a couple times last night to get petted. She went back in to care for them but it just made me anxious for some reason. Also do babies sleep without constantly nursing? I seen a few sleeping and not nursing. They are the biggest ones born I would say. Thanks for all the help.Your closet description sounded ideal. Didn’t realize that was the dog’s room. That’s why she moved them - to get away from your dog.
Did you sleep in the other room with her? The cat and the dog definitely need to stay separated for now.
Thank you very much. I sent a picture to the vet as well this morning as well just to make sure. I will start putting something on them.Yes, they are well used but would benefit from applying coconut or olive oil or bag balm on a regular basis for now. They look chapped and sore, but I do not see mastitis.
