I'm so grateful for all of the advice everyone gave me in my other thread right after the kittens were born. This question is more lighthearted and about mom.. she's been glued to me ever since she went into labor. She'd been very affectionate throughout the pregnancy but it hit new heights this morning: screaming if I'm not petting her, screaming if I move away. I have been stuck sleeping on the floor right next to her and her kits all day. If I get up to move AT ALL, she starts screaming and leaves her kittens to follow me and paw at me. Tried leaving her for awhile to see if she'd return to her kits, but no go. Why is she being so overly clingy? I can understand wanting comfort, but this seems pretty overboard. I'd really love to be able to leave long enough to take a shower!!
