    Ok we now leave Tiff and Bell to do their own thing at night but what about Jessica/Miranda? She is so tiny and apart from the other cats its a big house for her to wander around. We have a room set up as a nursery with everything she needs but when we put her there she cries, we won't sleep if she keeps crying but I won't sleep if I don't separate them for fear of her being lost or eaten?!?!?
    Help please

    Ooops!
    If only we had seen this before bed last night, I landed up sleeping in the spare room with her, after being scratched to bits she settled down and snuggled up under my chin. No such luxury tonight though she will just have to get on with it (feel so bad already!)

    We left Jessica in her room last night and unless I was unconcious before my head hit the pillow then she didn't make a sound (although she does do silent meowing sometimes).
    When I went through this morning she was in the bed, under the quilt, it was so cute, all snuggled up with her head on the pillow and quilt over her, only a little ear sticking out. Talk about a pampered puss, she is the size of my hand and sleeps in a double bed! :eek:

    Missing all my girls terribly being at work, but OH is there with them until I get home, wish I could give up work and just stay home with my babies.

    Might try to get a pic tmrw morning but she doesn't stay long once she see's me come in.

    New kittens always sleep in our room with the door shut & access to a tray & bowls with food & water. As they grow (in confidence to chase OH's toes!!!) they are encouraged to sleep elsewhere. Last night we had both cats asleep at the foot of our bed with the door open to wander freely. Success, I think. :cool:
