Welcome to TCS boots....one great resource is to read the links in this thread:

http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=74659

If she is due at any time...you can set her up with a nesting box now...make sure it is in a room that is quiet and have her litter box and food set up in the same room.

If she has been allowed indoors/outdoors..you need to restrict her to indoors only from now until she has her kittens weaned and can be spayed as cats can get pregnant again as early as a week after giving birth.

Again..welcome to the site and keep us posted on her progress.

Boots..that is why we are here..to help you. I understand it can be hard to keep a cat indoors only....but if you feel that will be a problem...setting her up in a large dog crate is an option.

dont think it will be too long as boots has started to go into her box not for long though she lies in for 5 minutes then goes n lies on her side on the floor im guessing thats a good sign ?????

Have you been able to see/feel the kittens moving at all? How about any signs of contractions? Is she going in and out of her litter box, pushing but not producing anything?
