first time poster, so be kind
Hopefully someone can help me. Our cat gave birth last night, under the bed. I'd built nest all over the place, so she could choose one. Not that I thought she would, I knew she'd go where she wanted.
Here is the weird thing though. I was under the impression that the mother, wouldn't let anyone near them for the first week or so. So, at after a couple of hours in labour, she did a quick clean up job and we have 2 new cute kittens. Then, she jumps up on the bed with one of the kittens, takes a seat and starts nursing between me and my husband. I knew she'd had more than one, so I bought the other kitten up to join, as I wanted both to be feeding. Anyway, she's now taken up residence on the bed! Please tell me this has happened to someone else?
The kittens seem healthy, and they were both feeding well this morning before I left for work. I was initially concerned as she didn't go back for the 2nd kitten and I had to bring it up on to the bed. However, she allowed it to nurse and showed to signs of rejecting it.
I'm probably worrying about it more that I should, but thought I'd ask on here more to put my mind at ease than anything.
Thanks in advance
