In the first week of February, one of my girls Krissy, went into heat. So it’s been a little less than 5 week now and her nipples are very pink. Btw, Krissy is almost 2 yrs old and this is her first litter.

    She’s pretty! I think it looks like she’s pinking up. Cats are very prolific breeders, so matings are usually successful.

    Krissy also has a little belly. Not too big but I can feel a lump on her side. Wondering if it’s a kitten?

    Hi! So Krissy’s nipples have definitely gotten darker and larger. But I’ve noticed recently (past few days) that she has been using the litter box very frequently and she’ll be in it for a while. She pees very often but only a little bit comes out. And she’s also licking her stomach and genitals more often. Could this be signs of a UTI? Is it safe to treat a pregnant cat with a UTI? Or maybe is this all just more signs that she’s pregnant? Thanks!

    Do you have a vet you could talk to? The licking by itself might be just a normal preggers kitty thing, but with the litterbox aspect of it-you're right to be concerned, I think.

    Yes I could call my vet. The only problem I have with bringing Krissy is she gets really stressed and nervous when she goes and I wouldn’t want to stress her out being pregnant.

    But, I could talk with the vet and see what he says.

    :vibes::crossfingers:

    Oh and for the future, maybe there's something in this list that will help.

    For example, Only Natural Pet has a spray product called Just Relax Calming spray with essential oil (catnip oil).

    There are also treats, collars, and diffusers made by many companies.

    There's this one, be sure and scroll all the way down the page;
    Bach Flower Remedies - Rescue Remedy Pets Dogs Cats Horses Birds

    Music can be useful in helping a cat to relax (not 24 hours a day though, just now and then for a couple hours or so).
    Low volume classical harp music, there is an app called Relax My Cat, and there's MusicForCats . com as some sources.

    You could try one of these, only a small selection of a fast-growing section of pet products;
    Richard's Organics Pet Calm-this one is drops that you put on the tip of the tongue. Also, Quiet Moments Cat treats, there is Calming Care, Calm-o-mile, Sentry, Natures Miracle calming spray, Vetri-Science's Composure is another item to look at, Pet Remedy (it has valerian) is yet another, as is Essential Pet Pet-ease, Only Natural Pet (brand and website) has calming products, Pet Naturals also has one I believe.

    Also Thunderease has diffusers as does Sentry, Comfort Zone and feliway although diffusers are expensive and not always the answer.
    If it's legal where you are, you might want to check with your vet but some people have good results with CBD oil, plus there are vet-prescribed calming products too.
    Lambert Vet Supply is a website to look at, and of course chewy, also there's Petwishpros, animaleo, Petco and PetSmart, and other pet stores.

    There is also a product called a lickimat which could be helpful, as cats can be calmed by the process of licking. The LickiMat - Food Puzzles for Cats

    This discussion's post talks about some other products;

    There's a little smiley in the text options bar at the top of your post, press that and you'll see several categories of emotions appear at the bottom of the post :thumbsup:
