pregnant stray, pls help! - Page 2

She will not let you feel her belly. I tried to feel them today and as soon as you touch her stomach she turns so you cant and if you keep persisting, she gets angry with scratch and bite.

Well, I'd be inclined to wait it out since my pregnant stray went 3 weeks longer than the vet gave her! It's so hard to tell with cats - could you get her to the vet if you felt you needed to?

Sending prayers from Mississippi for the mama cat and her kittens.

Keep us posted on her

Wow....she is really keeping you guessing! It is probably good for her to have had a few days in the crate, so she will have made it her home, and feel nice and comfy once the babies come.

Yeah, I think if worse came to worse, I could get her in a crate. I would probably be scarred, but I think I could manage....She is semi-feral and only wants attention on her terms. I dont think she is in any kind of pain or danger b/c she doesnt act stressed out. Everytime I go check on her, she is sitting in her box and comes out to greet me...

I would guess it's probably not her first litter - and like my Elsa, she probably just knows exactly what to do and when. We never even had any nesting behavior or anything.

I meant the dog cage when I said crate....I know you were going to pull out the dog cage. Is she going into it now?

I think just feeding her well and providing a nice home is all you can do for now...hopefully she will get tamer as she learns that you are not going to harm her!

You have had her for over a month now...surely she will have those babies soon!

Oh, sorry! Yes she has been in the crate for a week now. She is starting to nest in her box. I have blankets in there for her and I noticed today that she is tearing the corner of the box and shreading it.

Still no babies!! Poor thing is so big, I know she feels miserable! She is really tearing her box up so I put some shredded newspaper in the crate and in her box so hopefully she will use that instead.

I hope she has the babies pretty soon, I am getting excited about them now.

I am starting to think she isnt pregnant even though she is HUGE and I know that she doesnt eat that much for her to be that big. Her belly is really tight when I touch it but she wont let me touch long enough to feel for movement.

Starting to get really ANNOYED

Hey there....our rescue has had cats we SWORE were pregnant but it was either a case of false pregnancy or they had a really bad case of worms....one even turned out to be a neutered male.

Its not worms, I have already had her tested. It is definately a girl and I have had a dog go through a false pregnancy but she didnt look as pregnant as this cat does. She is bulging at the sides and waddles when she walks. She looks miserable and when I first rescued her, she was thin but her sides were protruding just a little bit. She eats good, but not that much to be that fat.....I dunno....

I haven't read the whole thread, but I'm assuming you took her to a vet to confirm the pregnancy? I was thinking the worst like tumors or something when I took Honey in. At least my vet ruled that out..

Sending prayers and hugs from Mississippi for this cat, I hope you find out what is wrong with her.

I took my cat in to the vet on March 17, and I told the tech she was huge. We took her out of the carrier, and the tech agreed that she was, indeed, huge. They did xrays and tests (she was semi-feral, and we wanted to rule out anything she could give to my kitties), and the vet declared that she would have "at least 2 kittens" by "March 27 - at the VERY LATEST."

March 27 came and went, and Elsa started to look like a bowling ball with legs. Every day I was just sure she would have them. Finally, she couldn't even lie on her side - she had to lie on her back. That night I first posted on TCS, asking what to do about overdue cats. Early the next morning (April 6) she had 8 kittens. So, just like humans, it's wait, wait, and wait some more!
