9 weeks and discharge

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi, Boo is 9 weeks prego and I noticed a few days ago that she had what I thought to be fecal matter stuck to her vagina. But now I notice when she lets me and I try to clean it off (its drying and stuck to her), that very little brownish water like fluid on the tissue. If I leave it alone by the end of the day more is stuck again... is this normal or should I be alarmed. She is also having a constipation issue (I feed her pumpkin yesterday and she went alittle)... Other then that all kitties are still kicking and moving about and Mama is gettin more tire and eating and drinking fine.

it is normal for them to have a discharge a few days before birth . some go straight in to labour once it starts . others a little later. as long as it dosnt smell or to much blood everything should be fine , if in a cupple of days she is still getting the discharge then i would speak with a vet . or better still phone up your vets and just ask them to put your mind at ease. it could be any hour/day now . remember once she has the kittens under no cirumstances should you allow her out side reasons being.......
she can become pregnant shortly after having her babys...
she could get hurt and not be able to care for her babys.
make sure you have a safe nesting place for her to have them there is a really good site on here that gaye has posted about perpering for the birth read it , it will be helpfull in case anything was to go wrong. good luck and let us know how things go

Like xxtashaxx said, it's normal for them to have discharge as much as a few days before giving birth. Smell/blood/etc...are bad,again, like xxtashaxx said. One other thing to watch for is a high temperature. If you don't want to chech her temp with a thermometer(not fun), then you can just feel her ears and paw pads. If they seem to be hotter than they should then you made need to take her temp or call the vet and have them do it because a high temp is a sign of infection which may mean a kitten has gotten stuck in the birth canal, died, and begun decomposing, thus the infection. Not fun, but it happens. Keep a close eye on her, if she doesn't give birth within the next 24 hours then you should probably call your vet.

Welcome to TCS....I think your mom cat should be fine. Just make sure you have a nice quiet place where she can have her kittens in peace and keep her safely indoors from this point until she has weaned her kittens and can safely be spayed. Below is a very useful link on what to expect:

Hi everyone, I think she might be in labor. She has been stuck to me like one of my own babies for the past couple of days and this afternoon she ran into her bed and seems very uncomfortable. She is breathing a bit fast but with no complications and cleaning her belly a lot more. She also hasnt wanted to eat anything this afternoon and has been in and out of the litter box. So just watching, waiting and talking to her. Thanks for all your concerns I hope everyone elses fur babies are doing well. I will update as much as possible.
Thanks,
Michele & Boo

Be sure to check on her when she goes to the litterbox. Sometimes cats confuse labor with the need to go to the bathroom and may accidentally give birth in the litter box.

To say the least, it's very messy...

Good luck and keep us posted! I hope she gives birth very soon!

Yes, learned about the litter box lol... we cleaned out and disinfected it, then added shredded paper so no liter at all.
Still waiting....

Morning... long night last night and still nothing. She keeps going in and out of labor. I dont think.... she is showing any obvious complications. I just feel its her first litter and she is a very spoiled Princess in this house LOL. But then again last night there were times she got me nervous also along with her. She is very nervous and does NOT want to be alone. So needless to say I slept (if you can call if sleep) by her side on the bathroom floor (wow it does get cold on that tile lol). I layed on my side to be able to watch everything she was doing and through out the night she would lay on her side and cuddle up next to me but she got the blankets lol. I think for now I'm going to see if she will let me take a nap. I can hear once again just scratching away at the litter box and the floor. I will post as things come in (I pray its soon). Should I be concerned about her or is this pretty much the norm for first litters?????

Michele....cats do often get "prepared" by going through the motions...but you are right, it is nerve wracking when you expect your cat to give birth and you see her starting to nest but she doesn't stay there. Definately sounds like it could be any day...but only your girl knows when she will finally have her litter.

Good Morning, its been a very long weekend to say the least. Boo is the proud Mommy of 4 little miracles. At this point I cant tell if their are boys or girls but I will let you all know when I find out lol. I can tell ya she had 2 orange/white Tabbys, one solid black and one brown/black/orange and white Calico and they are all fluffy like their Mommy. Boo had to have a emergency C-Section and she had her babies about 11-noon yesterday. She also had to have an emgercency hystorecomy afterwards. After I stopped listening to everyone around me telling me I worry to much and to let nature take its course, I went with my gut and call the vet. Needless to say Boo was rushed in and xrays showed one was coming out tail first with another ones head right after the tail. While being prept for surgery she was pushing and did go as far as poping the water and pushing out a foot (she was a little champ). The kittens needed oxygen and were dehrydrated to a degree. But the little black kittens bag had no fluid left in it. Dr said it was like sand paper trying to get it out. The little black one was very dehydrated. Boos uterus was badly beaten up and black and blue from the kittens long nails (from being overdue) and trying to delivery for at least 5 days. Boo didnt want nothing to do with her babies for several long hours afterwards. Finally having having a very long chat with her while I brushed her (also telling her how proud I am of her and of course how beautiful she is) she went to them and started to nurse. She still hasnt started to lick to them to help them go potty so I am doing that (always fun lol). Last night we had another sleepness night... she started to cry very loudly and go after her babies. After running in there on two differents episodes (an hour between each one), I decided to sleep in there and watch. About 6 this morning, was the worst one (and the third time), she started to cry loudly and get very agrivated. She was jumping around to get up and swating and me and the babies (growling too). I got all the babies away from her and then she just started crying/howling and rolling on the floor back. Thats when I paniced at first cause I was thinking the worst, I finally got her to calm down. I do need to ask... its been 24 hrs since her surgery and about 36 hrs since she pee's or had a BM could this be why she is acting this way???? We were sent home with antibotics but no pain meds. Other then the epidsodes she had, she absolutely loves her babies, is eating and drinking fine. Sorry for such the longgggg reply LOL. OK, I will update more later, amongst Boo and her miracle babies I also have 4 kids of my own that are home and need me right now. Thanks to ALL. Michele & Boo

36 hours since peeing or a bm, how much food and water has she drunk? if not much than that would be why but if a normal amount that i would tke her back in or call the vet at least. She may be backed up and that can be painfull after a spaying.
