I would go to work as usual. It would be good if you can come home and check in on things during your lunch hour but not absolutely necessary. Even if a problem does develop, in the vast majority of cases you have a few hours to seek medical care before the situation becomes critical. And if something significant happens, you will probably have to use some leave from work to take care of the kittens and maybe Patty too. Realistically even if everything goes well you can plan on visiting the vet at least a couple of times for one reason or another (even just for kitten vaccines) and you may have to take time off from work for these. So in general I definitely would not take time off from work at this point. What you want to avoid is a situation where you've used up your leave and/or your boss' good graces by taking time off on days when nothing at all ends up happening, because then you will be in a very bad situation if something serious does happen.
