you can move them but i wouldnt unless you really have to. make a few boxes so she can have choice if she wants to move them and keep her in a safe kitten proof room.

my cat followed me around too after she had her kitten. maybe sit in the room with her for a while so she feels safe. shes looking to your for reassurance.

i had to have the nest box on my bed for a month to make her happy!

if you do move them by hand try to cover your hand with something with her smell on

buy a couple of cheap pet beds coz your gonna need to wash the bedding every few days. get three so you have one to se, one to wash and a spare.

Is the mum looking after the kittens properly ? when mine had hers, she didn't come out of the box for the first few days (apart from when she was hungry). Does she visit the kittens regularly ?

I would leave them alone, and shut her into the cupboard with the kittens. Use a baby gate to block her in. They need her warmth and they need her milk. I would check on her a few times and if you see that she isn't caring for them, they are constantly crying, moving about, then you need to get proactive and raise these babies yourself. 6 months is a very young for a kitten to give birth and she may just be overwhelmed and in need of help from you. Also keep her indoors or she will get pregnant again- www.kitten-rescue.com will help you learn what these newborns need.
