We need a bit more information if possible. How far along is your pregnant cat? Is she due any day now? Is she acting normal otherwise, i.e.; eating, drinking, using the litterbox? Feeling well as far as you can tell? If you are seeing her acting unwell and very uncomfortable, then get her to the vet asap.

I think you may have startled her and/or caused her a bit of discomfort when you picked her up. Maybe put too much pressure on her belly and caused some discomfort. She could becoming close to delivering and is being very protective of herself and her unborn kittens.

She nursing her 3 day old kittens.
:lol3:
Glad that all went well. Don't know the history of you and this momma cat but hopefully she will be spayed after weaning as well as all of her kittens before you adopt them out! Again, I don't know your plans or the reasons for your cat's pregnancy but just had to say! Hope they all continue to thrive and be very, very healthy.
