Queens will need privacy to nest. Separated birthing rooms are ideal. Do not allow tall scratching posts or cat climbing condos in the birthing rooms. Hammocks should be lowered so the Queen is not jumping. Then removed before delivery, as babies can easily be smothered in a hammock. They need to keep calm to carry as long as possible. Make sure your birthing room is clean and quiet. If a Queen feels threatened, she could eat her kittens. It is best to have color coded scoopers and smocks for each birthing room so that you are not spreading germs and scents to Queens and Kittens. When your Queen starts labor, notify your Vet to be on stand by in case of complications. This is the time your cameras will be an exceptional tool. You can keep a close watch on your Queen for signs of labor without disturbing her.
