Hello,
I am new here, firs post. I am wondering if my cat could be pregant, I am a breeder but a new breeder.
She is eating a lot, but tummy does not seem to have starting expanding.
She looks a little pink and her tummy around her nipples seems lumpy, can she be pregant?

Thanks

Oweerak...welcome to TCS...as a breeder, I would really recommend that you go and introduce yourself on the Breeders Forum:

http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=7

The breeders on that forum are very familiar with their breeds and can assist you with any questions that you have with being a first time breeder.

The best way to know if your girl is pregnant is to take her to your vet.

I replied the post and it disappeared???

Anyway, Welcome to TCS!!

Do you know the date of mating? You can usually tell if the mating has taken 3 weeks after the mating and pinking nipples is a good sign. At 3-4 weeks, a vet can usually palpate the belly and confirm the pregnancy.

Check you pms later, I'll be sending you one!!

Unfort, I am unsure of the breeding, I had her running with my boy just so they could get to know one another-and I examined her and she looks a little pink and her tummy is lumpy around where she is a little pink-

Thanks

Wait for another week and then take her to the vet for a check up.

wait, are you talking about your 7 month old girl and boy? she could very well be prego, why would you let her and the boy run together when they are both mature? 7 months is MUCH too young to be a mother

why would you think they were 7 months?

Due to your reply in the Persian thread in the breeder's section!!!

some persians can weigh less, your cat seems cobby, which is very desireable and if they are cobby they tend to sometimes weigh less. I have a girl that is 7 months old and feels super heavy when you pick her up and she is very short and weighs just 6lbs and then I have another boy, who just turned 7 months, a large boy , at 9.5 lbs and he is huge-if he feels heavy and thin when you pick him up, he is probably fine, and if he is eating well.

this is why they thought that your cats were 7 months old.
do you have another 2 cats who are older then?

oweerak...it is a very easy mistake to make here when there are no specifics that are given regarding your cat. I'm glad that you waited until your cat was over a year of age.

oh, I am a breeder of Persians so I have more than 2-those that I posted about in the breeder section on still kittens-the ones I am referring to are older of breeding age-
And you are right 7 months is too young-I can only find one reason to do so and only breeders will probably know what I am talking about but if a female constantly keeps cycling she will or can get Pyrometria, a very bad disease, causing death or spaying if lucky which comes from cycling so much without being bred.
But my cats tend to start cycling later and I like to wait until at least 1 year of age. But I have had only one litter so far-and the mother was over 2 before those babies were born.
I was just wondering since I have only observed one of my girls pregnant before if this girl could be. My other girl was a solid white so it was easy to tell.
thanks for all the comments and had to make a comment about this.

Oweerak..well it's good that you are being careful. I noticed you haven't yet introduced yourself on the breeder's forum. There are several persian breeders who can help you with any questions you may have and I know that Abymummy has agreed to be your buddy. Let us know if you do determine that your girl is pregnant.
