Hello all! My name is Skyye and I am new here! Been lurking this site for a few months now looking at everyone’s cute kitties, debating on if I should create an account. Well I think now is the time, my cat mated May 22 with my other cat Banddit(neutered about two weeks ago now so yay! Lol) a little backstory on Banddit, he loves to jump on shoulders and is obsessed with human food, very misbehaved little heffer lol! He got out last winter (December 2020) and we hadn’t found him til the beginning of May(2021), Starface (the one pregnant), had to warm up to him as she was alone in the room since at the time I lived with my mom so she had to stay isolated in there since I’d found her at my fiancé’s moms living under her trailer :( very anxious kitty. Anywho, well a few days past and she mated with him on May 22, that is all I know, not sure if she did the deed sooner or not but if so, Shes WAY overdue now. She was due the 26 of July as far as I know, and she’s currently four days over her due date! -_- I heard some cats can hold off til’ the 70th day but everytime she has any sign of labor (excessive licking, meowing, nesting, she’s got huge memory glands), she’s back to sleeping peacefully and still eating a TON, seen the kittens being super active a few days ago but still nothing!! Very frustrated about it and can’t get her to a vet since we just moved into our own home so very poor atm trying to get things we need including their stuff and such. (We also have a ten month old baby who LOVES the kitties btw she is my lovely baby girl (-: ). Anywho, any tips on inducing or anything like that, maybe help her start labor? Other than that problem, I am 19, a first time mom and engaged <3 I love to digital draw (mostly cats, will show my art at some point when my power cord comes!), and I love to also write books and read :3 Starface is a calico, and Banddit is all grey! I’ll show pics soon , my phone storage is full so it won’t let me use anything in my gallery (,:

Hello and welcome to TCS. :wave2: Your kitties are lovely, and it's easy to tell which one is the mom-to-be. ;) I would suggest creating a thread about her in our Pregnant Cats and Kitten Care as this forum is more social, and the folks who can advise on pregnant cats, might not see it. Good luck. Hope the kittens are born soon.

The hardest part of having kittens is the wait! They are both absolutely beautiful, I wish you well in the future.
Kittens come when they come. Premature kittens, even by only a couple of weeks, do NOT do well at all, so really, the longer the better. It will be very close now. if she wants you there, sit quietly with her and give her encouragement, first-time moms are sometimes overwhelmed with fatigue and can not pay attention to what is happening. Make sure each kitten has the membrane removed from its face, and stimulate it with a warm wet washcloth if the mother doesn't start licking it. the umbilical cord should be attached to a placenta which the mother will eat. If she doesn't chew through the cord, it may be pinched/crushed apart with fingers or cut with scissors and tied off with a thread. About an inch from the abdomen. I bet everything goes well, they seem to know exactly what to do, good luck!
