Sounds like she is back in heat. If you need to get her into a vet soon to have her spayed..you can seperate her kitten from her so that her milk dries up. Just make sure you keep her indoors only as now is the time that she could become pregnant again.

She Has Been Spayed Last Week

she probably just doesn't understand where her babies are so she is calling them to come to her. Give her some time and extra loves and she will move on. (((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))

I agree she is just wanting to know where they are and why they are not coming when she calls them. It will take her some time but she will be ok. When I was younger I had a Calico that had 2 litters and each time one of the babies left she cried and called out but she got over it. Good luck.

You could try putting some stuffed animals in with her (maybe where the kittens would sleep or something). I did this with my foster momma when i separated her from her kittens. I put a blanket with her kitten's scent on it down in their sleeping area, and then put a few small stuffed bears in there. She snuggled down with them and calmed down quite a bit.

It will take a while for her hormones to adjust too. She may be a bit overwhelmed right now, love her a little extra and try the stuffed animals.

Oh...sorry Kittenuk...it is so hard to keep on top of every situation. I would certainly provide her some stuffed animals and just know that she will b calling for her kittens because she doesn't know that you placed them into good homes.

only by sitting up on window sill i am going to feed kittens in room and let her have her own space in hall ectfor a while each day hope it helps only wish the other mum would stop creating she has been spayed so should not be in season is there herbal oils or anything to calm them
post #13 of 20
NO herbal/essential oils Please most are Poisonous to you babies.

Do you have access to Feliway?? Do they sell it in the UK? If so that could help.

i will see if i can track down some feliway what do i do with it
post #16 of 20
Feliway is a plug in device that sends out calming pheremones.

You can get it on ebay or at your vets office.

YOu could try rescue rememdy in the cats water bowl. you can get that from holland and barrett.

Don't forget to have the first mum spayed now that she has completed her parenting duties.
