How to Prepare a Birthing Box


Is your kitty expecting to give birth soon? Here are some tips on how to make an ideal birthing box:

  1. Line a large cardboard box with newspapers and some soft sheets (flannel works nicely).
  2. Cut an entrance into one of the sides (for easy access).
  3. Make a cardboard cover to go over half of the top (makes a partial roof).
  4. Be sure to leave the box in a warm, quiet room.
