my cat had a second litter of kittens yesterday everything went fine and she had 5 babies. this morning she was throwing herself around on top of the kittens my husband thought she was trying to kill them.after we took her away and 5 minutes later she was normal again.then the same thing happened a few hours later its like she doesnt know what she is doing. after the episode she will return to them and wash and feed them as normal.please help

Answer from Kate
I don't think there is anything to worry about. Cats are normally very good mothers especially if they have had a litter before.

Just let her settle with the kittens and make sure there is enough room in their bed so that the mother cat has plenty of space.

best wishes Kate
