She is due in a week, and has started to get very cuddly - still sleeping on the bed which is a worry - might have to put a daggy quilt cover on cos my other cat had her kittens right next to me!
I don't think the size of the cat has anything to do with the size of the litter...however, if she is small, you should keep an eye out for if she seems to have problems during delivery.
I would also recommend that you keep her and your other cat indoors. Since the one cat has already had her litter, now would be a good time to set up her spay appt so she doesn't go back into heat and get pregnant again. Once the pregnant one has her kittens and weans them..that would be a good time to set up her spay date.
