Another question (for all you who know about pregnant cats)

The kittens have been moving since we found her (Wednesday)...and probably started BEFORE we had her...how long do you think she has to go? how long after they start kicking are they born?
I'm thinking I should be getting her whelping box ready this weekend lol..

  • just watch for signs of her not eating and when she really gets close then you will no because she will start trying to hide and have them. if you notice her acting funny, get ready.

  • cats have a gestation of just a little over 60 days, so it goes by fast!! i'd have a box ready for her just to be prepared, especially since you;'re not exactly sure how far along she is. the box should be in a location where mama will feel secure, so maybe in a closet, or you can also get her a covered box. put some towels, or shredded newspaper in the box so she can nest. within a day or so of giving birth, you'll be able to see milk leaking, and mama may be more affectionate, and also show signs of nesting. you'll have to post pics when the kittens get here!

  • When I found my kitty in the dumpster in the rain (poor girl) she was already knocked up and a couple days before she had them she started with this really deep MEEOOOWW...don't know if that's why and her belly was just dragging and she looked miserable then one morning we found her and her 4 babies in the bathroom sink...she is now fixed and babies had good homes...damn irresponsible people.
