Nest outside of the nesting box
My mixed breed doe just had six kittens. She had a nesting box but she decided not to use it. Should I put the kittens in the box or leave them where they are? Thanks :)**** Karen Sez ****
The main question then is - will the kits stay warm where they are, and will they stay put or will they crawl away accidentally?
It's usually best to put the kits into the nestbox. Then move the nestbox to the space where the doe put her kits. That should work fine.
Good luck and have fun!
