    It may have been a wee! She doesn't like her box anymore so I've taken it away, she's purring and panting away:)

    She pushed twice then stopped, could they have been contractions?

    she had 4 kittens, one of which did not make it, it's heart breaking but I think she knew something was wrong, she didn't want anything to do with him,
    Mums doing well and the little ones are all feeding ,
    Thank you for your advice and support
    Will post some pictures of the babies soon

    IMG_4403.JPG Hi she decided to have the babies in the middle of the living room on my night gown! Do you think it will be safe for me to move her and her little one's to their box and put them somewhere quite,
    The kids are due to get up soon
    I don't want her to get freaked out.
    Here's a really bad picture of baby number 1 :)

    Mum does not want to be moved, put the box in front of her popped the babies and her in , she got quite rough with the babies dragged them out and went back to the couch, I'll leave it until she feels safe moving them. Thought she was gonna bite the little ones head off !!

    Hopefully, once mom settles down, she'll let you move her babies in the box and follow you to a quiet room.

    IMG_4463.JPG IMG_4453.JPG She finally moved them yesterday but in to a really small spot, behind the birthing box we set up for her!
    It's in between two wooden boxes under a blanket, should I move the boxes a bit to give her more space?
    Or do you think she feels saver all closed in?

    I think she feels safer this way. She has her feedom of moving, so...
    Do you have possibility to look see everything is OK?

    Most rescuers and breeders do weigh the kittens every day, so to be able to reach the kittens is what is desired. :)

    Hi, no we can't see them, she has them well and truly hidden!
    I could move the blanket to check on them and then replace it but I'm scared of freaking her out and her hurting the babies,
    She's a very friendly cat and keeps coming out for cuddles but is a very protective mummy I don't want her to feel threatened by anything we do
