Order in which mother cat moves kittens?

Is there any particular order in which a mother cat takes its kittens to relocate them? Does it have something to do with weight or fur color or birth order? Or is it just random?


I noticed that my cat always takes this particular kitten first. Is there some evolutionary reason for this?

Not that I know of

There's no order that I know of, but a mother cat may reject a sick kitten, refusing to care for it, or worse. Interesting that your cat always moves the same kitten first. Maybe she has a favorite. :)
