I've noticed that Doodles doesn't pay much attention to her kittens. She comes in to feed them and disappears. I had to learn how to stimulate them to go to the toilet after the 3week mark because as soon as they were done suckling, Doodles would disappear.

I haven't seen her 'training' them either. I left it a while but she didn't seem to be doing anything about it so I stepped in again and started teaching them how to hunt and stuff.

They do however seem to be more mature, I started weaning them at 4weeks because mummy wouldn't show up very often and I'd have crying kitties at my feet. They've been litter trained for about 4 days now and they've only just passed the 5 week mark. I know mummy still has milk because she still feeds them now and again.

Was I right to interfere or should I have left them? I can't really win, because I feel bad for interfering but I couldn't stand to see the kittens crying because they were hungry or needing the loo.

Yeah, I'm getting her spayed as soon as pay day comes, been trying to keep her in as much as I possibly can until then.

It's just that she was a great mother with the first litter, she did absolutely brilliantly. That's why I've been so confused
