Maybe it was the cool and very wet conditions outside (we had a rather big storm that came and went during the day).

Hopefully this is a sign of things to come, but only time will tell.

I could definitely lock her in the room along with the kittens if I wanted - seems like cruel and unusual punishment, though
You are doing great !

Nope, a cruel and unusual punishment is to put her outside to fend for herself! My foster mommas are kept in a room with their kittens 24/7 because I can't let them out due to my cats. They were all just happy to have food and warmth and no stress. I did provide a cat tree in the room to get away from the kittens once they start exploring outside the kitten box.
