Definitely within the next week. I would guess within the next three days. If she is beginning to lactate it is very, very close. Just keep her calm and make sure to feed her kitten food to give her extra calories and nutrients, she'll have a lot of little mouths to feed!
I just felt her ears and they're cold as well but i'very not noticed her losing her Mucous Plug unless she's licked it away. I looked at a Cat pregnancy calculator and that said she would have them thus week though. Just a waiting game now lol. This is the only way she can get comfy now too bless her little paws.
I just thought that she would have them this week because a scan on the 31st of May showed she was pregnant. Then on the 1st of July they showed up on an X-ray, þhought that would help. So any ideas when she will have them please anyone?
I know how hard this is, but it is truly a waiting game. She will have them when they are ready and not a moment before. She will get restless while starting labour, you'll see 'rippling' or movement on her sides and abdomen when she goes into labour. I remember thinking my last batch of kittens would never come, she looked like a bowling ball on toothpicks. She couldn't even lay on her side. Then it started, and went and went, and went. I thought something was wrong then, she ended up with 7 kittens! She was so exhausted, I helped clean up the last two kittens for her. Make sure you watch and make sure she cleans the face good and gets them breathing, if not, wash their face with a warm wet cloth and rub/knead their little bodies, like you see her doing with her tongue. Keep us posted!
Thank you everyone for your help and advice Muka has 4 adorable, beautiful and soooooo cute kittens today. She started to give birth at 7 o'clock pm and finished at 9 o'clock pm. Muka's an amazing Mum for dating it was her first litter. All kittens are feeding well, the White with the black/grey on it's head was born 21st, the light Silver Tabby was born 2nd, the Dark Tabby was born 3rd and the Grey was born 4th. So pleased and thankful that Muka and her kittens are all safe and healthy.
