Hello everyone! It has been awhile since I have been on this site. I have been pretty busy. My cat had her kittens about 31/2-4 weeks ago. Everyone seems to be doing fine. The male kitten is larger then the female. I have kept a careful watch to make sure that they are both nursing equally. The male is more active and he is even start to rough house on the sister. She does not seem to care. The female is walking around, but not as much as the brother. This morning something very weird happened. While I was sleeping I heard alot of crying and wimpering from the kittens and the mom. I did not make a big deal about it because they sometimes do that. When I woke up I noticed that my mama cat took the female out of the box. I do not know why. She had her in the corner of the closet. Almost as if she was trying to protect her from something. I called the vet and they said that they did not know why should we do this. I put the mama cat out of the room and put the female back in the box with the brother. The brother immediately charged at her and started rough housing again. I let the mama cat back in the room and she jumped in the box. She saw them playing but it seems as if she did not like what the brother was doing to the sister. Do you think this is why she took the sister out of the box? To protect her? Do you think my mama cat thinks the brother is being too rough witht the sister? I am so confused and I do not know if I should be worried about this. Also, how do know when the are weened from the mama? I have so many quesitons. Someone PLEASE help!!!!!
