Female cat gives birth
by Ali haworth
My female cat just gave birth to 3 lovely kittens about 12 hours ago. When I go to her box to tell her what a good mom she is being and pet her, she comes out if her box and makes this growling type noise. Yet at he same time she is rubbing against me and giving me kisses like she always does. Is she trying to tell me to go away? Is she protecting her kittens? Why would she make this noise?

Umm strange. Her behavior would suggest that she is happy to see you so i am not sure what the growling could be. I wonder if she is a little confused at this stage and wants to protect her kittens but is also happy to see you. Sometimes first time mums can be a little unsure of what to do at first.
All i can say is that i would imaging that over the next few days she will settle down and the behavior should stop.
best wishes Kate
