My 1.5 yr old cat was out for 2 days january 30th, and 3 days february 7th ish not sure when during that time she got preggo, but she is and i was wondering how far along you think she is. Thought i felt kittens move a week ago but havent felt anything since. I love her so much so i want to be home when she goes into labor. She is so sweet and loving has been her whole life want to give her the best. She has alays been a smaller cat so her belly is huge for her but not as big as in pictures ive seen. 1553815027381523611561759719570.jpg 15538150516158036045318580777856.jpg

Cats have an average gestation length of 64 days, so if you go by the February 7th date, that would mean that she will deliver her kittens around April 12. If she mated on January 30, that would put her delivery estimate around April 4. So, in either case, it’s not too far away! You can usually start to feel movement around two weeks before delivery, so since you felt movement last week, I think her delivery date would be probably closer to the 4th. Counting days certainly isn’t 100% accurate, though, as every cat pregnancy is different, and the kittens will come when they’re ready. Once you start seeing milk production, then she should be about one or two days away.

Thank you! Im excited for sure! Do they usually go into labor at night or daytime?

She's a small cat and her belly is big for her but not as big as other cats ive seen. Is that ok?
The size of the belly doesn’t matter too much. She could just be carrying a small litter. Or maybe she’s carrying them “neatly”. The average gestation for cats isn’t 63-67 days so she’s getting close!
