When I went outside I kept hearing a kitten crying. I looked where the babies are supposed to be and was missing one. I followed the sound and found it in a bucket full of rocks. This did not surprise as mommy cat has always liked laying there. But the bucket is full so the kittens would not stay there and would fall off. I put it back. Next she brought it out and laid down by where hubby and I were sitting. So I got a clothes basket and put them in that as you can see in the picture. That worked for about an hour but they could not stay there as the basket was out in the open. She started trying to take the kittens back to the bucket which I had fixed so she could not. I thinks we came to an agreement of the kittens in a feed pan, under the tilted wheelbarrow, by the bucket of rocks. I will know tomorrow morning for sure. Silly Gray Cat.

Often its the first litter that they are bad with. She will learn, I am just hoping I can keep track enough to help keep them safe. I had one that put her kittens in a small dip in the ground once. Looked like it might have been a rabbits nest. That worked great until we got a downpour. She brought me a soaked kitten. Then a second one. I finally got her to let me follow and got the other 3 in and dry. She did learn and never did that again.

They are worse with first litters. They can get them into some unsafe spots while learning what to do. But this cat is such a love bug that being happy having them beside us was not surprising at all. I just am not staying out there all night.
