How far along?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I work with kittens alot... but n ot too often with pregnant mommas... she has me stumped.

We got her in about a month or just over.. she didn't show signs of pregnancy at the time. She was a wild cat and got stressed from being kept inside, so she got sick and had to be moved to our special needs room.

She was in there for 3 weeks or so, before being moved back to the main centre.

A week ago, which was when she was brought back, I noticed she was pregnant. I didn't notice before hand because I don't deal with the special needs cats... I don't even go into that room unless I absolutely have to, because I don't want to risk passing any sickness to the main centre.

She's alot more friendly now, I can pet her and whatnot.. but still can't pick her up to see if she is producing any milk.

After palpating her belly, I think I feel 3 kittens.

But I'd like to know how far along she is so I can bring her home closer to her due date as to not upset my mother. My last pregnant foster cat was 'due any day' and didn't have them for a month after I got her.

She's still got a full appetite and she is mega freindly...
She had to have been pregnant before she came in so she's gotta be at least 5 or 6 weeks along.

Here are some pictures.

Belly shot... you can see one of the nipples with the fur groomed away from it..

it can be very hard to say how far along she might be. if she is only carrying 1/2 kittens then it could be any time . what have the vets said about her? they are normally pretty good at judging how far long she might be. and as you have said you can feel the kittens , have they started moving yet?? if yes then i would be tempted to say maybe 7 weeks along?

I am not sure if I have felt them. She purrs nonstop so all I can feel in her whole body vibrating.

the only time she saw a vet was when she got sick about 3 weeks ago.. and all he did was give her antibiotics.. he didn't check to see of she was pregnant or anything.

She is only about 7 or 8 months old.

She must be due within the next week or so.

I checked her file when I went to walk the dogs this evening, and she came in Feb 21st, and that was what.. 7 weeks ago almost?
I'll see if I can bring her home this weekend.

Yeah judging by the time you got her then she is probably due soon.

I just want to say that that cat is so gorgeous. If you are looking to get her adopted after her kittens are gone then you will have no trouble.
