Hello, I took my sisters cat on 6 weeks ago because my baby nephew came out in a terrible rash and she was told it was an allergy to the cat so I took her on. My sister told me that there was a chance she was pregnant as she got out a few times, I know she is 100% pregnant now as she has gotten very big and I can see and feel her kittens moving, big strong movements aswell but I'm not sure when she is due or when to expect them, I have put her on kitten food several weeks ago and I have provided multiple boxes for her to choose from as birthing spots, I'm just sort of wondering If anyone could give me a rough estimation on how far they think she is please

I remember one time when I was uploading a video I had to really trim it down - maybe try that?

Your cat probably has 7-10 days left! :)
She is forever cleaning herself and uses the litter tray a lot and she is very cuddly, she follows me round and the kittens move a lot

Wow! She was closer than I thought. Good to hear that things went well and 3 kittens are doing well. :)

She lost her plug last night so I was sort of expecting it but didnt know it would be this fast, she had her 3rd kitten almost 4 hours ago, I haven't seen or felt anymore movement inside her and she hasnt had anymore contractions either so i think she is finished

I put 2 different birth boxes out in the room but Luna obviously didnt want to use them she decided to have them under my recliner chair instead 🤦‍♀️ obviously it's not safe for her to stay there with her kittens all it takes is for the chair to be knocked, I have 2 children too so I'm wondering if you guys have any tips for moving her and the babies into a box where she is safe?

ummmm, can you try putting the babies in a box near to the chair/behind the chair - she wants an enclosed space, I'm thinking, due to all the normal/usual human activity...

Use fresh bedding, put the kittens in, and take the nest into your bedroom or some other truly quiet and private place, such as a guest room or corner of a closet. Mom will follow. Put mom’s food, water, and litter nearby and give her peace, quiet, and privacy for now. Children should not handle the kittens for three weeks.
