If she is not spayed and allowed access to the outdoors, she is most likely pregnant. Remember, they will cycle in and out of heat very often until they do get pregnant, so if you don't get her spayed after she has the kittens she will 'gift' you with countless kittens. Mine had three litters and 17 in one year until I finally caught her. They can also get pregnant when the kittens are only a week or two old.
I have a soft spot for grey and white cats, pictures would be welcome. Any questions or concerns, please come and we will help you in any way we can. Keep us informed on her progress!
Yeah she is for sure gonna get fixed when she has them . We have a boy in the house who is 7 months and is supposed to go in the next couple of days to get fixed so most likely she is pregnant but I hate not knowing for sure and the vets here can’t tell me for sure until she is almost due and I don’t know when that is.
I would say she is due 3rd or 4th week of January. She will get bigger faster now. First litters are usually around four kittens. Keep us posted on any changes, we may be able to pinpoint things closer. All the luck!
Okay so it’s around the time she should be giving birth if my math is right and I was just wondering what are some things to look for ? Since I have 3 small children I want to make sure I’m around so they don’t go near her or the kittens
She is getting close....It is so hard to pinpoint when most people seem to wait forever to see the kittens. Usually, they look a tad smaller right before, as the kittens drop and line up for the birth canal. Then she will lose a mucous plug, it will look white coming out and she will do a lot of licking. Then it can still take up to a week before the kittens are ready. She must be kept calm, small children around while she is giving birth is NOT good, they are too excited and too loud. As long as she is calm, not pacing and crying in distress while she is giving birth, everything is alright. Sometimes first-time mothers don't know what to do and need help, you might be ready with a wet warm rag to wipe the sac from a kittens face, massaging it pretty good to get it breathing. If the placenta is still attached, try to pinch it apart with your fingernails about an inch from the abdomen, if you can't do that, cut it but pinch the end connected to the kitten firmly to stop any bleeding. It has to be crushed, like with a mama's teeth. Cats give birth all the time and everything usually goes alright, just keep an eye on her. Heavy bleeding and her in distress are NOT normal. Good Luck!
Oh, I'm so sorry, RIP little one......
It is not unusual for a delay between kittens, it depends how she is acting. If she is calm and acting normal, every thing is good. She may still have a kitten or two. If she is still contracting, crying, or pacing she may be in trouble and a vet is needed.
