help cat may be having kittens - Page 2

post #31 of 40
Nope really bad idea- your cat could get stressed and have her kittens early, or he could lose her outside and then what would you do? Keep her home, and keep her safe, and give him a frog to take instead. If you have only had this cat for five days, she is not going to allow a bunch of strangers, particularly kids to come into her room and view her babies. Tell the teacher to take the kids to the local animal shelter, so they can learn about what happens to cats that don't have homes instead!

One of the teachers at his school all ready asked me if i would bring them by so she can look at them and may take one.. oo and his school isnt a regulare school hes in a private school and theres only abour 30 kids in the whole school..if i where to take her i would stay there and and watch and if she starts to show any signs of not wantting the kids home i would take her home right away.. ty
I dunno, if I was in labor, or even close, I wouldn't want 30 screaming / overly excited kids wanting to rub my belly.

I would wait until the kittens are at least 6 weeks old and then only one or two at a time...short periods of time, maybe 15-20 minutes then back home, totally supervised.

My son's 1st grade teacher form last year is a huge cat lover and fosters for the same group I do and I took in our last litter of 3 and it went great...but I also know how careful she is with her class, and her kitties...no way I would do it otherwise. It was great for the kids to learn about them, and it was also wonderful for the kittens since...according to the org we foster for, we are a very good household for kittens that need socialization...when they leave us, they can handle anything I guess.

yes if i wear to take the kittens to see the class i would stay there with them and would only have them there for a short while.. just so the kids could see them since my son has been telling them that they are coming soon.

I think this is a really, really bad idea. Don't take that girl into your child's classroom and don't allow anyone to come over to see her or the kittens until AFTER all of the kittens have received at least their first series of kitten vaccinations. You are courting danger here and I strongly suggest you put this idea out of your mind.
