What are your experiences with due dates? - Page 4

post #91 of 99
It is good that you are handling them right away. Kittens who are handled early in life become much less skittish of humans and socialize that much more easily. Congrats on a safe and uneventful litter!

Thank you so much. I have been picking them up and giving them back to Coral after she takes a break to eat and then goes back and lays down. They have such a hard time finding her, poor little kitties. It also puts a nice trust between Coral and I because she sees that I am giving them to her and I can tell she really loves it. What an amazing experience!

Yay Coral!
One of my foster cats was like that, always so proud of her kittens, trying to show them off to us! It was adorable!
So glad everything went alright!

I had to move the kittens and Coral into the bathroom last night because they all kept meowing and I'm a very light sleeper. Has anyone else had that problem? I felt so bad because this morning I opened the bathroom door and Coral immediatly began moving them back into her birthing spot in the closet. I didn't know what to do last night and I was really needing some serious sleep after the 2 1/2 hours from the night before. Is it okay to move her at night and then put her back in the closet in the morning? Otherwise, I don't think I can sleep.

Does she have food, water, and litter box in the bathroom? She should be fine moving back and forth since she's been trusting you with her babies.

I did the opposite with Goldy. Kept the basket under the piano in the living room during the day and moved it into my bedroom at night. That was mostly so I would know if my other cats were bothering the babies (they never did). When I went to work I left them in the bedroom and shut the other kitties out. It never seemed to bother Goldy. She just kept caring for her babies wherever I put them.

Ok, good to know. It was so cute how she moved the back this morning! I guess it will be part of our daily ritual. I'll help her move them back tomorrow morning, since I'm the one causing it. What a great kitty she's been through all of this.

I wish I wasn't such a light sleeper. Those little meows make my heart just out of my chest when I hear them at night. I don't know if it startles me or what, but I couldn't take it last night.

Oh, I know what you mean! When I had a bottle feeding kitten, he would want me to be up at 7 every morning, just so he could have his bottle! If I didn't he would cry at me!=P
Finally when he was old enough, I just moved him out!

It sounds like you sacrificed a lot for a long time for that little one. That's very sweet. The kittens were very quiet last night. They only meow when Coral gets up to go potty and eat, but she was pretty good about getting back to them quickly.

It did take up a bit of time, but at the end it was so worth it!
I'm so glad everything is going good wit Coral and the kittens!
In a couple of weeks we should be getting a foster mother to care for...I'm so excited!
