Hi! I found a very sweet and affectionate stray cat about 8 days ago. She was pregnant and her kittens could already be seen and felt. I’m keeping her (I named her ash) and I’m going to adopt the kittens out, but I have no clue when she’s going to give birth. I have her in my guest bathroom with a couple of nesting areas set up. For the past few days, she has been going in the nesting box I set up, but most of the time she is sleeping. The kittens are very active, but I haven’t seen any discharge. I don’t think she can reach around her stomach to clean her vulva, and I’m not sure if that’s an issue or not. Her stomach is huge and seems pretty uncomfortable while she’s trying to sleep. She’s also pretty skinny everywhere except for her belly and has a small frame/narrow hips. I have two other cats who are very clingy and meow at the door, and I’m worried they may be keeping her from going into labor. She doesn’t growl or hiss at them, but she lays in front of the door most of the time and looks anxious when they meow.
