Congratulations on the new babies:-). It sounds like Stella chose a nice warm spot for the babies but I can appreciate your concern. Is the radiator one that can be turned off individually? If you can, that would be the first thing to try. Do you have a dark closet that you could set a kitten box into? Hissy has a great idea about using rice-filled sacks that can be heated in the microwave to provide an alternative heat source for the kittens while you move them. Stella may be willing to accept that alternative. In the meantime, if the kittens are not in danger from the radiator's heat, let them be for the day. I am sure other posters will come up with some good suggestions for you.

i think your gonna have to leave the hun. if not you'll worry Stella and she might move them somewhere even more unsuitible or get stressed and accidently injure them.

if you can maybe confine them to one room or buy a large cat crate with the space for her to move them around in. try setting up a few nest boxes so she can have a choice and some control. good luck!

Try offering a nice warm box on its side with a towel covering most of it.

I used a large dog airline kennel when I took in the pregnant stray, that way my other cats couldn't bother the babies and the momma cat felt like she had a nice safe cave for her babies.
