barn cat just had kittens--questions!!!
A week ago a neighbor's barn cat came to live with us. SHe had been hanging around--is very gentle with us and our chickens and has been socialized by their children. The neighbor said we are welcome to have her. We have 20 acres but no barn so I set up a large plastic crate filled with pine shavings and towels and blankets over that and she has been sleeping there
I just got home from work to find her with 4 kittens (a 5th died). They are in her "bed" She has food and water nearby. Is there anything I can or should do? Should I try to change the towels? that would mean taking them all out and putting them back. Will they be warm enough with her in the garage (low in 40's tonight but nights in the 30's coming).
I could put them in a back entry room that sould be warmer.
I have no idea what to do--any advice appreciated!
