OK, so I will go ahead and say sorry now for having to ask so many trivial things, but this is the first pregnant cat I have ever had as an adult (was 8 when we had one). I just got Grey a little over a week ago (almost two) so I have NO idea what her "normal" behavior is, nor do I know what her behavior is like before she gives birth? I am concerned about her noticeable increase in trying to get into places (utility closet, washer room, son's bed, behind Aidan's aquarium, under the desk/shelves and behind the Chameleon cage). I have several locations that I would prefer her to give birth (I know that it may not be her first choice, LOL!!). I have a box in the closet in my room (dark, quiet and not to big), a quiet place under my computer desk (not used for anything but storage), a corner by my dresser (closed in on three sides and quiet). Problem is she is VERY scared by my trying to put her in any location and will run away right away, never giving it any chance!! Grey is very friendly and LOVES being pet, however she is easily scared and will run and hid at the smallest noise, people (except me and Aidan), quick movement and so on! How can I help this mommy-to-be feel safer in her new home and pick a location to give birth that is liked by her, but easy for me to observe what is going on? I REALLY want to see the birth and ensure all goes well, but I do not want to scare her or make her nervous!!! I will be getting the digital scale, KMR and bottle on Friday; anything more I should have on hand?
