I usually only have 1 new litter at a time. Until the kittens are about 5 wks, they are keep in the converted room in our master bedroom (used to be a 2nd closet). Then they are moved to the "kitten room", to make room for a new queen. But right now I am actually expecting 2 litters, mid november. 1 of the queens does not like to be bothered for the 1st week and likes it very dark. The other one, doesn't care who is around or whether it is light or dark. Because of this, I need to find something else to put the queen in who does not like to be bothered. I can still keep in the Kittening room, but put a blanket or towel over to make it dark for her. Other then not liking to be bothered in the beginning, she is an awsome mom...just likes peace and quiet the 1st week.
I like the Kitten playpen you guys mentioned. I think I saw something like this at PetCo. I will definately check it out. Thanks for your suggestions.
