I just found this site and posted yesterday for the first time. I am trying to read and learn everything I can before Bella has her kittens in the next few weeks. Bella was abandoned by one on my tenants and has found her forever home with us. Well what we have now is a beautiful pregnant kitty. I found a great supporting vet who checked out Bella gave her a clean bill of health and performed an ultrasound that showed she was carrying at least 3 kittens. My question is this....I just read somewhere that as the time grows closer....to quit using clumping litter as she may have one of the kittens in the litter box and she wouldn't clean it and the kitten may drown in its own fluids? How true is this? Should I really stop using the clumping litter? I just want to be as cautious and responsible as possible and help her bring this beautiful little kitties into the world. I do definately plan on having her spayed as soon as the kittens are weaned. I also have already found homes for 2 of the 3 kitties so far. The vet kinda laughed and said she can't promise there won't be more than that. Unfortunately somewhere in this house Bella has found a hiding spot and we all have no idea where that may be. Sometimes she disappears for several hours....we check everywhere but have no idea where she goes. I am hoping this is not her chosen birthing spot. I have made a nice birthing suite for her our laundry room away from alot of noise. Anyways..thanks for any support and advice that you can give this first time nervous kitten mother.
