we're having kittens on mothers day!!!!! *update....no action yet* Update2!!!!! *day after mothers day kittens are completely acceptable as well*

She played on me and her butt was all wet and slimy. No kittens just yet, but I put her in this basket with some blankets and we are just waiting now :) totally made my day!!




Update ----no babies yet. Yoko still has that sticky looking discharge, but hasn't shown any more signs that she is having her.kittens. she has
Laid in her basket most of the day, no contractions or panting etc. I think she lost her mucous plug, so we are definitely having.kittens, not sure how long this is going to take though. I'll update as soon as we have some kittens :)

And to all of you "responsible" pet owners, thanks so much for your concern. I know she should have been spayed but she is an only cat-child. She never gets out or is around male cats. My mother took care of her for a few months while we got settled into our new apt and brought a stray male cat in. She didn't realize he was old enough to do the deed, and well the deed was done. No excuse really, but we are taking steps to.make sure each kitten has a good home and that Yoko gets fixed as soon as she is done nursing.







*update 2*
Yoko started labor around 9:30 am yesterday. She had the first kitten at about 11 am. She stopped doing anything, and I started to get nervous when I noticed a piece of placenta hanging out. I Googled, and Googled, and googled some more and I tried to gently tug on it. It wasn't budging. She seemed comfortable and was very loveable so I left her be. DH sat with her while I took dd to school, and when I got back, still no progress. I nervously waited by her side, called the vet, then the emergency vet and was reassured that she was OK, as long as she wasn't lethargic or bleeding heavily. 4pm came, nothing. 5,6, and 7 pm nothing. By then I was freaking and said I was
Giving her another hour and if she didn't have that kitten I was going to the vet. I called the emergency vet again and they said she was probably laboring with a stillborn, and again no excessive bleeding so she was OK. In that time she was still following.me around, like she had done all day, so I thought I would try to get her to eat. I gave her some tuna and she chowed down. Eating must have given her some energy because
Within 15 minutes she gave birth to the still born. It was sad, she licked it a little like she was saying goodbye, then got back to business. 4 more kittens followed. All cute and fuzzy and meowing their little heads off. She nursed them right away and settled into her.nest with her little family. We have 5 healthy kittens and one loving mama, and I am so proud of her. Heading to the vet Friday to get the babies checked to ensure their health :)

 Because they are cute! I mean as long as you initially give them a home then it's no longer your problem what happens to them.

Tell me- oh BestestMom- one legitimate reason to bring mixed breed kittens into this world...

I'm waiting.

 

Quoting BestestMom11:

It isn't asinine to plan a litter if you have the babies and mother/father fixed afterward.

No rainbows out of you @$$ needed, but less criticism would probably be appreciated, Anon.



Quoting Anonymous:

Your post was the exact reason why states/counties/cities enact spay/neuter laws.

While some people are asinine to plan to breed their mixed breed cats and dogs- it isn't positive at all.

The babies will be beautiful- but ALL baby kittens/puppies are beautiful. NONE of them deserve to be put to sleep.

RESPONSIBLE pet owners are fantastic- being responsible if you have an accidental litter is wonderful too. In that case, you fix the parents and you fix the kittens.

I guess- on CafeMom- people are supposed to blow rainbows out of their asses whenever someone posts? Oh wait- that must be another site.

 


Quoting BestestMom11:

It doesn't necessarily follow that these kittens will become strays/homeless.



Some people actually PLAN on their cats having one litter before spaying.



I understand that it is sad that many cats, on a daily basis, are put to death, and for the most part people should spay and neuter (we always have, but then again our cats are always indoors only), but can you not have a little happiness that she is looking forward to baby kittens?

Spay and neuter!! Do you realize how many cats are euthanized every single day???????

My mom is animal CRAZY and she's always been very vocal about what needs to be done in order to be a good pet owner.
Luckily for my area, we have an Animal Birth Control that does free spay and neuters one weekend a month and since they've come into town both shelters (no-kill, animal control) have reported that on average they have 6-7 kennels empty now.

HOORAY!!!!!!!!!!! 

Quoting Anonymous:

That is awesome- black dogs and black cats (and puppies and kittens too).

I'm glad OP is spaying her cat- not so glad that so many people still don't care in this day and age about the puppies and kittens killed at the shelters on a daily basis. They don't get it- these (say) FIVE mixed breed babies will take the potential homes of 5 kittens that are slated to die. OR ya know- these five kittens could end up at the shelter after their cuteness wears off since we are still in kitten season and Craigslist and the shelters will be overflowing once again.

if this same train of thought applied to biracial children you would be a fucking racist.  what is the reason to breed ANY type of cat?  half breed are no less alive than full breeds.

What's your point?

You realize the reason why this country is slowly enforcing spay/neuter laws all over the place is because MORE people are irresponsible then the shelters can handle? Come on. We don't really need to put out the graphics- do we? This is actually a more conservative graphic.



Quoting anime_mom619:

What the fuck is wrong with some people! Christ, we get that animals should be fixed. Mine are all spayed, neutered. Out of the youngest two cats, one we got from dd's friend whose cat had kittens (they kept one of them and were very careful to sure each of the other kittens went to good homes-- they also then took mommy and kitten to be spayed together). the other we adopted from the dumb friends league and she had to be spayed b4 we adopted her. Oh, and our other cat was part of a litter born to a rescue cat. The person who gave us Nanook was very careful to give each kitten a good home and ask when they will be fixed. He didn't want them to go to just anyone.

My point is that there are plenty of responsible pet owners out there. To ASSume that each and every pet owner is irresponsible is insane and stupid.

This is what we did on our ranch. Barn cats! We had two females that had babies. I got the one fixed because she had complicated births. That left us with one female who had kittens. Some kittens went to homes, some went to other farms and some stayed with us.

Thank you for answering a question that was intended for me, but I don't agree with your comment.

I would never suggest ANYONE, pure breed or otherwise, plan a litter because they are "cute".

That is moronic.

You can... use ferals for mousers like most farmers do...

You can... pick up cats at shelters for pets.

You can... send your family members to the shelter! Ta dah!
