Sometimes the kitten will nurse after delivery sometimes not--it can be dangerous if the mom cat is having more kittens because as she moves around she can step on them-I had a separate box that with blankets and warm rice socks that I put the kittens in after they were cleaned up a bit either by me or by mom so that Sadie could have enough room to move around between births w/o stepping on the babies--If you do have to move them somewhere away from mom while she has them it is very very important that you keep them warm!
