Wondered if anyone could offer any help with this one. Katie cat had a litter of 5 kittens 2 weeks ago today and has been taking care of them in the dogs old bed happily since they were born. Woke up this morning to find she had moved them all out on to the carpet at my side of the bed. I have tried putting them back in the bed twice but she keeps moving them back on to the floor. Is this normal? What should I do (if anthing)?

Totally normal. Cats do that to keep their litter safe. It's an instinctive thing so they'll do it even if there's no danger about. Let her settle down for a while then try moving them again later. She might have relaxed a little and be ok with it. If she's not though I'm afraid you'll have to put up with squeaking kittens all night! Take it as a compliment - she considers being near you very safe.

BTW I am so incredibly jealous that you have kittens envy
