    I have just heard poppy in the cupboard under the stairs as she kocked som larger cans over. Went in to find she'd snuggled up in a cooler bag that i had used to store some gloves and scarfs, very cute but don't fancy her giving birth in such crampt locations.
    Other places have been in a small suitcase underneath the bed, closed but not zipped.
    Underneath a drawer that had been part pulled out, she was there for hours we thought she had got out cause we searched high and low.

    as far as im aware they tend to look for dark quiet places where they feel safe. we put a birthing box in our wardrobe and eeny chose to use it and have her babies there, mo on the other hand chose to have they on the floor at the side of the tv in our bedroom lol

    Usually the most inconvenient place EVER! No matter how many cat beds/boxes I set up, she always went and hid behind the sofa! In the end she did use a cat bed under a low shelf to have the babies, phew!
