So we just rescued a pregnant cat (apparently this is her second litter and she is only 10 months old herself!) and have no idea what to expect. We have made a den for her and have a spare bedroom for her, but when should we lock her in that room to ensure a safe birth? The vet gave us such a vague due date that I don't want to confine her to only one room in the house longer than is necessary. Plus, she seems to like going under our bed and seems to be nesting there, but it doesn't seem safe to just let her give birth under there-right? Please share your birth stories, what happened and what didn't so we know what to expect. Much appreciated. P.S. Will she be very protective of the kittens....will she let us take them and put them in another basket next to her during sibling births? I can't imagine she'll let us get that involved....although, so far she has been nothing but needy, loving and cuddly. Hope that doesn't change too much once she gives birth. We are just as cuddly back. We love her so much. thanks. Any input is helpful.
