Gather up the kits and all the fur pulled by mama and put them in a nest box with wood chips and straw. You can also use a shoe box in a pinch. Mama should take care of the rest. She’ll only nurse the litter for a few minutes twice a day. You most likely won’t see her nursing the litter or spending time in and around the box. Check on the litter morning and night and remove any kits that have expired. Clean the nest after 5-7 days.
