And im only 17 and my parents keep saying she will be fine. But its nerve recking. lol. I just want everything to go smooth with her.
You are a good cat mom despite your youth, my dear! Your concern and love for your girl shows through in your words.
Does Tuppins sleep with you normally? If so, you might want to try fixing up a box for her to use as her delivery nest and put something like a t-shirt you have slept in (and that you don't mind if it gets totally ruined) in the box with her. She might also be comforted by your presence when she begins the actual delivery. You mentioned that you will be attending your brother's wedding, but will someone be there at your home while you are gone? If not, maybe you could notify your vet that the delivery time is close and ask if one of the vet techs could come by and check on her while you are away. If you are home again before she delivers, the vet/vet tech can assist you in gathering some things you might want to have on hand as well as what to watch out for in terms of problems.
You will want the box to be big enough for her to move around some and to stretch out longwise, with a part of it covered at the top. Most mom-kitties like to think they are safe when delivering and caring for newborns - give her that security in a safe, low-traffic area where she can be confident that no "baddies" will jump out and harm her babes. Dim the lights as best as you can, put her litter and food/water nearby and then let her take it from there.
Just as a quick suggestion for later ... after Tuppins weans this litter, you might want to think about having her spayed unless she is part of a breeding program. She will be a much happier kitty in the long run.
Best of luck, and please let us know how you (and Tuppins! I ~love~ that name!) get along. I'll be looking forward to hearing all about the experience.
