I have just found out my cat is pregnant ... I have no idea what she will need...she doesnt have a cat bed at the minute .... should I buy her one? Also, we were just going to bet a large cardboard box to keep the kittens in with some blankets etc. Any advice on what to do...im completely clueless Im afraid
When she has the kittens she will find her own place to have them, it might be under a bed or in your sock drawer, you can't tell! You could provide a box that she might use but cats tend to go off and find somewhere that they feel safe and comfortable to give birth!
I plan to keep them for (hopefully) 12 weeks after she has them before trying to find good homes for them....will a box suffice for this time to keep them from wandering anywhere dangerous....at what age do they tend to wander off? Im SOOOOO excited!!!
Awwwwww how lovely!...my cat had kittens ages ago now..but twas lovlely...
perhaps a comfy bed for kittys to go in after, and definately card-board box. Eventually you will need a litter tray for mummy cat and you to teach them to poop!...one with low sides is what you need.
My cat had hers in our downstairs bathroom, we put the box and bed in their quite early on and thats where she went to give birth. They stayed contained in their too, which was safer when they started doodling around..and it kept the children away from them.
Me and DP work all day and im really hoping she can hold them in until I get home from work....I would hate to think of her going through it on her own (oh how attached we get to our pets...). She keeps going in behind the washing machine though and im worried about her having them in there in case they are hurt....will need to try and box it in so she cant go in there any more.
