My cat had kittens 15 days ago, Last night i heard one of the kittens crying,I hunted high and low for him and eventually found him behind the wardrobe in my kids' bedroom.There is no way he could have got there himself as the kittens are kept downstairs, why would my momma cat do that to the one kitten??

This morning about 2am I heard the cries of a frightened kitten.I had to hunt high and low for hom and eventually found hom behind the wardrobe in the kids' room.
Now there is no way that he could have got all the way upstairs alone, can anyone tell me why she would have done that ??

There could be many reasons ... do you have Momma and babies confined to a room now where she can't get out to move them around? That would be best.

Sounds like the problem I am having here with Sammi - I put her and the 5 kittens and all there "stuff" (box, litter box, food dishes, water and milk bowls) in the bathroom and now they are confined to a safe area where I know that at least they can't get out!!
Good luck!! It's so scary when mom decides to "relocate"!!

He could have. How far was it from the nest?

about 25 feet from the nest lol, surely he couldn't have done it on his own.

Oh, I beg to disagree. When mine were born, I went into the room and the NEWBORN was about 2 feet from the mother. She kept doing that too, and was christened, "Dora the Explorer."

OR....the mother could have been in the process of moving the whole nest and got tired. But I really think you have a little explorer there. I think you should name him Sir Edmund Hilary!

How does she respond when you put the kitten back with the others? Is he smaller than the others, or less active? It is possible - though far from certain - that she is trying to reject him. If that is the case, you will need to bottle-feed him.

He was only moved the once, a couple of days ago. She welcomes me putting hom back as she seems too scared to do it herself or to lazy

Yeah, for every time YOU have put him back, she's probably put him back 3 times. I'll bet she's sick of him exploring!

Very often a cat will do that when they do not feel their kittens are safe. They are tring to find a "safe" place for them.

Remember that they do not judge "safe" the way we do.

One of the problems of putting them in the bathroom is there is a lot of traffic in the bathroom. If different people are going in and out of their, that can be interpeted by a cat to be a threat to her babies, especially if its not a home the cat has grown up in. but is a fairly new one.

If there are other animals in the house, she could even be trying to protect or hide them from the others. And that scent is there, even if she can't see them.

If you can, try to find a place that not only can you limit how far they can go, but where there is little traffic, so the interaction is planned and quiet and uninterrupted.

Personally, I wouldn't keep a cat with kittens in the bathroom. I think there's too much traffic, too much light, and too much noise (remember, plumbing makes noise we become acclamated too, but to them it's new, and can be scary).

Good morning, It is definitely little man who is the explorer and not momma moving him. She had me up 6 times last night because he had done a runner.Me and Hubby have now decided to name him houdini.

Hehe, what a cutie.

Storm moved Midnight once into a closet. Just Midnight and just that once, it was really weird.

Maybe midnight is her only child that listens to her

Maybe Midnight was in time-out.
