Miley had her kitten, and has moved her. She had her in a safe secure place, and has left her there for 5 days. Well this morning my daughter went to take Miley her food and water and she moved the baby. Now, I am not sure if she didn't feel safe anymore or what? I would like to move her into our garage so we can contain her and make sure the baby stays healthy and Miley for that matter. How do I do this without making Miley feel threatened. The weather is supposed to include rain and cooling down in Ohio the next week. I don't want baby to get wet. I would like to move her tonight? Is it too soon? the baby was born on Thursday. I would really appreciate any advice...I am guessing they are both a permanant fixture in our house...My daughter was crying when she couldn't find Miley...I have a vet appointment Thursday for Miley..
I've had the same problem, and the Queen always picks the most god-awful places to take them, like under a bed.Unless you have the cat in a quiet place, like a crate with a blanket in it, you will not be able to keep track of her moving her kitten. She will also want to move it from the crate too. Where does she have the kitten now?
she was a stray cat hangning around the house...we started feeding her b/c we felt sorry for her....she is outside until we have her checked on Thursay at the vet...we have 2 cats inside...so, I don't want to bring Queen in yet...I was going to put her in our garage with a box and blanket, litter box..etc..right now she moved her in the bushes in front of the house...it isn't protected from rain etc...what do you think?
That's the problem with cats, the places they pick are not necessarily safe. My only other suggestion, if you want to make sure that the kitten won't be moved again (she will) is to crate them until the vet appt. Do you have a spot where you can set an x-pen up, with the crate litter box,food and water in it? The garage is not the best place, if you actually park your car in it, because of the fumes and noise. It will drive the Queen nuts.Of course, if you don't use it, it would be perfect. Do you have a garden shed, or any other shed that would do? You could put the cat and kitten inside, but they would have to be seperated from your other cats for sure, until after the appt. Have you noticed any fleas or ear mites on her? Those 2 things you could treat, but you can't risk the leukemia, etc. Not an easy dilemma! I hope you figure something out, and the hedge is not good. A dog could easily come by and hear it, as could another Tom cat.
I know Pen...I am not sure what to do? I could park my car outside the garage until at least after the appointment...I don't want to put her in the shed, b/c it gets very warm in there...I am not really sure what to do? I really wish I could just bring her in, but I know Max would drive her crazy..and I have to protect my other cats as well..I know it is going to rain tonight. I put a box with a beach towel in the garage. I will leave the garage door cracked. She has been following the girls into the garage alot today and wandering by the steps going down to the basement from the garage. I am hoping she will move the baby to the box. She has been a very good mommy. She rarely ever leaves her baby and the minute she hears her baby she runs to it...I am trying to do the best I can...I just know nothing about kittens and would never do this to myself...I guess I am lucky I don't get more stray animals out here...My heart is too big and I want to help them all...I don't know what mites look like, about a week ago, my husband picked a tick off her. We haven't seen anything else. I don't think I see any fleas. I am sure I would have seen at least one if she had them, especially b/c her teets are so big. What do you think?
