Neither Gemma nor Gina showed any interest in nesting in the birthing box before delivery, but love laying on my bed. I just knew I'd wake up some morning and there'd be a litter of kitten on the bed. I couldn't put them in the nursery, because Sasha and her kittens were in there. After Pippa was born, Gemma still didn't want to use the birthing box. She kept taking Pippa out and putting her in various places in the bedroom. Every 30 minutes I was using a little flashlight and playing Find the Baby.
Hard to believe that two orange moms produced six gray and black kittens. They're all girls, and the four dark ones aren't solid black, but are torties, and have tan on their faces. All are doing very well and gaining weight every day. Gina has also gotten wise to the flashy thing on the black box.
The back bedroom has just become available. I cleaned it and moved the girls into it last night. Every time I go in the room, the box is empty and all the kittens are on the floor in back of the recliner. Admitting defeat, I put the heating pad and towel behind the recliner. A room heater on low helps keep things cozy. So far, the babies are staying on the towel. So far.
