Cats/Queen Cat


My cat has kittens that are 6 days old today. She has kept them in the nest until last night, she moved them. Why? Will she bring them back to the nest or is it okay to get the kittens %26 bring them to the nest or should I just leave them alone?

no this is fine and quite normal behaviour. Often queens will feel the need to move their kittens for safety. I would leave well alone she will move them to somewhere safe and it sounds like she is a good mother and so i would not worry.

best wishes kate
