Thanks for your response! So far, so good. She is taking short breaks away from her babies to eat and use the litter box, and as you say, for some attention herself. We are giving her lots of love and pets, talking to her constantly, telling her what a good Mommy she is.

I have another question. Despite the fact that we provided nesting boxes throughout the house, she choose to have her kittens on the rug, next to the bed. We've put keep the room extra warm, and put a blanket behind her, but I am worried by the fact that the kittens are on the rug directly. I don't care about the rug, it can easily be replaced, but I am worried that they will start going the bathroom, and it will soak into the rug and they will being lying in it. Should I move them and put some towels and newspapers under them? I have been afraid to touch them, although Munchie Mommy is certainly not bothered by my being close to them. I could feed Munchie, and quickly move them and put the towels and newspaper under them (several layers, as I saw suggested somewhere).

Should I do this? Or should I wait?

Thanks for your help!

Christine
