I prepped her little room for birth tonight and put the heating pad in her birthing box, covered with a soft blanket and 2 layers of puppy pads. She has not shown any interest in the box at all, unlike any of my other queens, so I tried sprinkling just a little bit of catnip in it and this is the hilarious result. Hopefully she'll positively associate it to the box and combined with the warmth, start using it and give birth there. If not I also have towels and blankets all over the rest of the floor just in case. #babiessoon #pregnantcat #fosteringsaveslives #fostermama #catnip #spayandneuter #easycleanup #laboranddelivery
