Regardless, I suggest you find a way to keep them separated from your other cats. That's probably the main reason she does not feel safe.
I'm sorry I should have made it clear, yes I am breeding purebred cats, and not only purebred, but registered with champion lines, and exceptional pedigrees (all house cats caged very little) as well as a registered cattery. I live in a small house so for now I have one breeding female, one male, one retired queen, and one kitten from her last litter.
I have been posting a lot in the "labor" thread I started and figured most have read about this birth. I have contracts with the kittens from her last litter requiring them to be altered, and have recently found a vet who will do early altering and any kittens that leave me will be altered prior to leaving.
I raise ragdolls and here is the litter she just had:[img=http://img80.imageshack.us/img80/2497/icedantelitter0020ka.th.jpg]
