Ok so heres my situation. We've had this cat, Ginger, for about a year. She just gave birth to her first litter of kittens. THe kittens are about 3 weeks old. I noticed yesterday that the kittens looked like they were trying to get out of their box, Ginger wasn't in there with them, she was eating. So I thought maybe the kittens were ready to explore outside of their box (they were scraching at the top of the box, meowing, trying to look over the edge). So I picked them up and set them in the floor, well when I did that Ginger went crazy. She would stand over them and then just plop down on them. She was grabbing them very aggressivly with her mouth. She was bitting them on their throats (not the backs of their necks), hug them, then she started kicking them. I dunno know if she was playing or what, I mean the kittens weren't crying out or anything. I don't think she was trying to move them cuz she'd grab one and hold it against her, then start biting and kicking. So I put them back in their box. I've never seen her act that way before. We don't handle the kittens that much, but we have started to pick them up more now that their eyes are open. She doesn't have a problem with that, when we picked one up sometimes she would look at us and sometimes she didn't pay us any attention. That all changed once we tried to let them walk around, she was very agressive towards them. Any ideas?
