Thread Starter 
ok....i see some whitish yellowish discharge and ripples like the kittens are moving around like mad....is that contractions???

And she never vocalises...and shes meowing at me....and shes jus settled in her cat bed but keeps shifting about n lifting her back leg up. Will i get the kittens tonight then?????

aw i hope so , we had the discharge y/day , depends on the ripples , there hard to explan, the only way i can is like this , everytime it happens it last a few seconds her back sort of archs up like all the fur moves and she may purr while this happens . sorry thats the best way i can explain it. anne is doing simillar shes back and fourth in her nest , then trying to get in places where she cant even get her head into(shes confind to the bedroom.
ooo do update when something more happens

They sound like contractions!! is she getting like a hollow in her side/back? thats the only way i can think to describe it! it is very VISIBLE when they have a contraction!

Does this mean i have to sit here for hours now waiting?!
I'll get in bed and be thinking 'wonder if layla has had her kittens' and wont be able to sleep

oh yeah and check this out - my mums been away 4 2 weeks in spain and layla is v attached 2 her. we all guessed that shes w8in 4 my mum...and she'll have them the day she gets home. Guess what day my mum got back??

Unless one of the parents of the kittens is white - you will NOT get a white. What color is mom and dad?

I'm guessing the one you said is dark tabby is a brown tabby.

Pictures please

Thanks 4 everyones msgs. Layla's very tired and lazy... shes just left the kittens 4 the 1st time theyre all full up and sleeping so ive let her come downstairs 4 a while 2 recooperate...shes been with them non stop since midnight !!

The babies have turned out beautiful. I think there are 2 fathers because 2 of the kittens are clones of each tom ive seen Layla with. The 1st one turned out 2 b a silver mackarel tabby, the 2nd is a brown classic tabby with white paws and bib...and the 3rd is a clone of Layla - all white. Then theres the last one which is a tuxedo B+W. Thankfully theyre all v healthy although the white is a little thinner than the rest.

Well about the white one i dont think we will keep it ourselves, but ive already had interest from the next door neighbours, my brother and his wife, and my other brothers fiance....so it will be staying close by anyhow!

Hope this starts off a trend and all the cats on here start popping soon! Good luck 2 everyone
